Tandem Europe

For organisations based in EU countries

Tandem Europe is the most recent addition to the Tandem programme family. It is tailor-made for people who work on creative solutions that make social innovation possible throughout the EU. The programme stimulates strategic thinking in organisational renewal processes, helps to create and sustain culturally innovative effects across sectors, disciplines and borders, and explores creative and collaborative solutions for contemporary challenges in our societies.

Tandem Europe is an initiative which was developed by the European Cultural Foundation and MitOst e.V. together with Fondazione Cariplo (Italy). It is financially supported by Robert Bosch Stiftung (Germany) and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (Greece).

For the past years, citizens and communities all over the European Union have been affected by growing social disparities and severe economic backlash. These are difficult years for Europe but also a time full of new possibilities. Unorthodox creative projects have started to emerge all over the EU. They show the imaginative power we need for finding new answers and fresh approaches to the current challenges in our societies. These exceptional cultural initiatives often provide substantial meaning to people’s lives. We believe they can also help to initiate broader social and economic innovation processes.

In all EU member states pioneering ideas, new social alliances and alternative economic and collaborative working models have been put forward by cultural pioneers. Creative initiatives - especially those from the financially and socially most affected EU regions - have started to experiment with new social designs and alternative economic strategies for addressing burning issues in their local working fields. These new initiatives could benefit from a further cross-pollination and mutual engagement with colleagues from all over the EU.

Tandem Europe will support 30 pioneering cultural managers from all 28 EU member states to step up to the next strategic level. Our programme will assist their organisations to build new tactical collaboration channels together with creative minds from abroad. Tandem Europe represents the most recent edition among our TANDEM programme family. It is tailor-made for cultural managers who work on creative solutions that make social innovation possible throughout the EU. The programme stimulates strategic thinking in organisational renewal processes, helps to create and sustain culturally innovative effects across sectors, disciplines and borders and explores creative and collaborative solutions for contemporary challenges in our societies.
