Tandem Ukraine: Call for Applications


Tandem Ukraine

Tandem is an international collaboration programme for cultural makers and their organisations. The programme supports the development of partnerships that address current social challenges and opportunities. Since its inception in 2011, Tandem has supported long-term collaborations, knowledge development and networking opportunities for more than 250 cultural managers from over 100 cities in 35 countries across the wider Europe. There are currently five Tandem editions which focus on different regions and topics.

Tandem Ukraine is designed around the core belief that the burning cultural and social questions of our times can be addressed creatively and effectively through inspiring learning experiences while working with new organisations and across new localities. Our vision is to see strong networks of creative communities and cultural change makers emerge from this programme and to support the impact they make. Tandem Ukraine offers a platform for collaborations between cultural actors to strengthen their capacities in community development and conflict resolution through the arts and culture on local and international level.

Tandem Ukraine 2016-17 helps establishing long lasting collaborations between cultural managers and their organisations from Ukraine on the one side, and from EU member states, the Russian Federation, Moldova and Belarus on the other. 

The programme invites people that work in organisations and initiatives that bring about positive change in and with their communities. These cultural managers are motivated to explore unconventional ways of working with and through arts and culture, putting their cross-disciplinary experience to the test. Tandem is looking for socially committed, empathic, highly motivated, dynamic, open-minded personalities, ready to experiment with new social designs and extend their cultural work to new topics and disciplines.  The programme addresses cultural managers both at the beginning of their career, as well as experienced professionals.

Open to applicants based in Ukraine, all 28 EU member states, Belarus, Moldova and the Russian Federation.

Deadline: 14  March
