Join the European Cultural Parliament's Youth Network

The European Cultural Parliament's Youth Network (ECP-YN) is a Pan-European Network of young professionals boosting the value of the arts and culture across Europe through professional networking and collaborative projects. It is a network of cultural practitioners between the ages of 20 and 35 based in Europe. The ECP-YN is an extended branch of the European Cultural Parliament and created within its framework. The founders and members of the YN are united by a common interest in strengthening European cohesion.

The ECP-YN is advertising a call for new members to enlarge the UK team. The YN is in progress with the planning of the pan European "empowerment" project and the partnerships with LabforCulture/ECF, the European Economic and Social Committee and many others. The ECP YN is searching for 10 very committed and active members through this call, but there will be opportunity for a larger number of interested parties to be involved in the wider network in the future. The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2013.

Further details can be found at www.kulturparlament.com/about-ecp-yn/projectsnews/

Applicants that are not selected for the national team, will still be automatically included in the local ECP-YN networks. Current local ECP-YN networks include Germany, Poland, UK, Italy and Greece. In a very near future networks will also be started in Sweden and in France. The ECP-YN would very much encourage start-ups of networks in the eastern European countries and on the Balkan.
