Actors of Urban Change
Actors of Urban Change is a Europe-wide pilot programme by the Robert Bosch Stiftung in cooperation with MitOst e.V. It aims to achieve sustainable and participatory urban development through cultural activities. This is carried out by strengthening the competencies for cross-sector collaboration among actors from the cultural scene, the administration, and the private sector who form teams of three committed to implementing a project in their city. Using culture as a tool, the projects might address a broad range of social, political and environmental challenges related to urban change. On a local level, the teams receive support for the implementation of their joint projects through grants and customized coaching. On an international level, they benefit from further qualification through workshops, seminars, peer-learning sessions and field trips during meetings and shadowing internships with teams from different cities, allowing for Europe-wide exchange and networking.
The application deadline is 27 October 2013. A more detailed description of the programme and contact information, as well as access to the call and the online application form can be found on www.actors-of-urban-change.eu
