TANDEM – Cultural Managers Exchange Turkey – European Union aims at establishing long-term collaborations between cultural organisations from Turkey and the EU countries. We call for applicants for the Partner Forum to take place in İzmir on 11-14 June, 2015. Deadline: 22 April, 2015

The political landscape across the EU, Turkey and their neighbour regions has substantially changed since TANDEM Turkey-EU started with a pilot in 2011. In times of harshening working circumstances for cultural actors in Turkey and a vanishing EU integration perspective building robust long-term EU-Turkey collaboration channels become ever more essential.

We believe in the importance of cultural collaboration to create lasting connections between groups and communities. Cooperating with new organisations and in new localities provides inspiring learning experiences. The TANDEM scheme facilitates creative innovation, and nurtures local cultural change-makers. A creative TANDEM network emerges from this programme and will last beyond the year-long collaboration, thus contributing to social and cultural well-being in the region.
