Gulliver Connect 2006
The Felix Meritis Foundation in Amsterdam announces the launch of the Gulliver Connect 2006 mobility programme. Under the title Connecting the Caucasus, some 15 grants for working placements are offered to young artists, art managers and professionals of related areas from Europe, the former Soviet Union and the Caucasus.
The aim of the programme is to:
- promote international co-operation between young arts practitioners,
- act as a catalyst for international collaboration in the arts,
- encourage the 'learning by doing' experience as an alternative career development,
- support cross-border partnerships and an informal "Connect Community", and
- shape the policy development of civil society at a local level.
The deadline for completed applications is 15 December 2006, applicants will be informed by the end of January 2006. The work placements can take place until the end of November 2006.
