BECC staff exchange/training programme (Kosovo)


Bridge between European Cultural Centres (BECC) is the ENCC’s flagship staff exchange, training and mentoring programme for young professionals working in cultural organisations. It offers participants international work experience and a European perspective, and helps them acquire new competences and skills that are crucial for their organisations in their work with their audience and the broader community.

This year's edition will take 15 selected participants to Pristina, Kosovo, in March 2019, for a 3-day kickoff seminar in preparation of staff exchanges.

BUILD YOUR LOCAL NETWORK (AND KEEP IT ALIVE) is the topic of the year.

Training on this topic will be combined with professional development and soft skills coaching.

The 2019 programme is designed by the ENCC in collaboration with trainers Dagna Gmitrowicz and Raluca Iacob. BECC is the ENCC's fully-funded capacity-building programme for cultural workers under 35.

The ENCC provides a financial contribution of 800 € per participant. This grant, paid either to the hosting or the sending organisation (according to individual agreements), is to be used for participation in the BECC exchange: activities, accommodation, catering, international and local transport. The ENCC covers all costs for the launching seminar (accommodation, catering and programme costs for participants).

Applicants should be young professionals under 35 years of age, working in a cultural centre or another cultural organisation inside or outside the European Union. All profiles are welcome to apply (managers, project coordinators, communicators, technicians, artists, teachers, trainers, freelancers, trainees, volunteers and others). They should clearly show in their application their motivation to develop new models of local cooperation and community development. Applicants’ organisations should identify a clear need for the training within their structure and create ownership for the project. They should be ready to take responsibility for preparing, supporting and evaluating a qualitative learning experience.  

The deadline to apply is 15 December.
