Aiming to promote the culture as generator of knowledge, cultural creativity in all its forms and international and regional cooperation, UNESCO created in 1974 the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture (IFPC). Priority is given to young artists and creators (18-30 years old) and to projects benefitting youth.
Call for project proposals is now open until 30 May 2014 at noon CET.

IFLA has published this information at their web page; we’re publishing it for further dissemination:
UNESCO will provide patronage for an international event being organized in Marseille from the 28th of October to the 1st of November.
This conference is picking up the conversation started at the 2nd UNESCO International Conference on Memory of the World in the Digital Age in Vancouver. This initial conference resulted in the Vancouver Declaration. IFLA has been involved in the Memory of the World Conference and is now actively involved in implementing the roadmap of the Vancouver Declaration.
The call for participation is now online and we would very much encourage libraries worldwide to participate in this ongoing and important conversation.
