2023 — 2024

Call for LINA Members

Deadline: 29 August 2023

The European architecture platform LINA invites museums, galleries, festival organisers, academic institutions, media organisations, and other cultural operators with innovative approaches to spatial practices to become part of the network and contribute to its 2024–2025 LINA Architecture Programme.

Who we are

LINA is a network connecting relevant institutions with emerging practitioners and thinkers who work at the intersection of architecture and other fields related to spatial culture: it aims to promote up-and-coming talent. LINA’s goal is to steer design and building processes towards regenerative practices and principles of de-growth in line with the values of the European Green Deal.

What we do

A growing alliance of European and Mediterranean organisations—LINA members—carries out a series of events taking place all over Europe. The LINA Architecture Programme is supported by the European Union within the eligible countries of the Creative Europe Programme.

LINA members offer the chance for LINA fellows to become part of their programme, feature their work through lectures, workshops, mentorships, or other collaborative formats, and help their ideas reach further and gain an international audience.

What we're looking for

We're interested in learning about proposals for exceptional activities and events that will help form the core of the 2024–2025 LINA Architecture Programme and will include LINA fellows to promote them and help them develop their practices.

We're looking for activities to complement and expand on our existing programme, allowing for new enriching experiences for LINA fellows.

Activities of the 2023–2024 LINA Architecture Programme

What we offer

Becoming part of the platform offers an opportunity to connect with prominent organisations and practitioners in Europe.

Evaluation criteria

A grant will be awarded to proposals that will follow the vision and mission of the LINA platform and will contribute to the overall objectives of the platform.

The applicant should include a minimum of 3 LINA fellows into the activities of the organisation over a period of 1 year.

The applicant should guarantee a minimum 20% of their own financial support in the overall budget of the activity.

The coordinating entity will assess the applications on these evaluation criteria, specifically and in this sequence:

  • the extent of relevance and quality of the activity that will become part of the 2024–2025 LINA Architecture Programme
  • the added value brought to the LINA platform by the applicant (reach, diversity, specific expertise)
  • the extent of possible secondary benefits

For the LINA platform, geographical dispersion is also an important criteria. Applicants from countries not yet included in the platform will be treated as a priority. Nevertheless, the quality of the proposed activities is the key basis for selecting a new member.


The Governing Board of the LINA platform will decide on the recipient of the grant and inform applicants of their decision until 15 September 2023.

All applicants are kindly invited to participate at the 2023 LINA Conference at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, 9–10 October 2023, where we will announce the results and present the new member. More: 2023 LINA Conference • LINA
