Tandem Shaml - Cultural Managers Exchange

Open Call

Tandem Shaml - Cultural Managers Exchange (Europe and Arab Region) - is an initiative which was developed by the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam) and MitOst (Berlin) in collaboration with Culture Resource (Arab Region). The programme is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung (Stuttgart), Stichting DOEN (Amsterdam) and Mimeta (Norway).

This exchange and knowledge development programme allows cultural professionals from many different disciplines to acquire skills required for engaging in long-term partnerships. The Tandem process provides hands-on possibilities for getting real insights into European and Arab cultural scenes. Participants will gain practical experiences in collaborating with rapidly changing fields in both regions. Tandem Shaml is based on the organisers' belief that working together on tangible cross-border initiatives creates fruitful cultural dialogue among different groups and engages and exposes distant communities to each other. Tandem Shaml is designed to strengthen participants' skills in the field of cross-cultural collaboration and organisational management. The programme addresses both young and experienced cultural managers and project coordinators with good command of English that represent independent cultural organisations that are well connected and active in their local communities. Tandem Shaml starts with a Partnership Forum from 15 - 20 September 2015.

Application deadline is 22 June 2015.

For Arab applicants: please fill in the Arabic online application form. Contact Silvana George (TandemShaml@mawred.org) for further inquiries.

For European applicants: please fill in the English online application form. Contact Hatem Salama (salama@mitost.org) for further inquiries.

The selection of applicants and invitations for the Partner Forum will be announced by mid-July, 2015.
