Proposals for the open calls are reviewed and approved according to the capacity of CCA “Toplocentrala” and the planned program of the Centre.
All applications received are discussed by Toplocentrala’s programming team and approved by the Director of the Cultural Institute.
Additional experts are brought in to review and evaluate applications for some of the open calls.
