Open Call: Tandem Shaml

Cultural Managers from Europe and the Arab region join TandemShaml. If you believe culture can help change our societies, you’re in the right place. Deadline 6 April 2018.

If you believe culture can help change our societies, you’re in the right place: Tandem is a collaboration programme with a focus on experimenting across disciplines and finding new approaches through a variety of projects. And you won’t do any of this alone: Tandem is all about ‘Doing-it-together’. The programme is for one year, but its impact goes far beyond the scope of the project, impacting your local community and your own personal and professional development. Many members of the Tandem Network have become friends - it isn’t surprising that we like to refer to ourselves as the “Tandem Family”. If you want to join this growing network of people working towards social change through culture, apply now.

Open to applicants based in the Arab Countries and Europe.
Deadline is 6 April 2018 (23:59 CET).
Visit the Tandem website for further info and to apply.

Tandem Shaml is a cultural collaboration programme. During the Tandem year, cultural managers from all over Europe and the Arab region kick-start collaborations with a partner from abroad. Together, they design and test new ideas by realising a pilot project for their own local environment.
Tandem offers a space to build real, meaningful and sustainable relationships that can grow through shared artistic interests, enthusiasm for creative discovery and the joy of making things happen together.
Tandem Shaml allows cultural professionals, including cultural managers and activists, and more, 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 gain practical experience by collaborating within rapidly changing fields in both regions. Since its inception in 2011, Tandem has supported long-term collaborations, knowledge development and networking opportunities for more than 300 cultural managers from over 200 cities across the wider Europe. There are currently five running Tandem editions which focus on different regions and topics.
