Tandem Europe
Tandem Europe is an exchange program for cultural managers from the European Union and is aimed at 30 cultural managers and their institutions.

In international tandems the cultural managers develop and realize joint socially and culturally innovative projects. The projects are supposed to be exemplary, support the development of their organization, and have an effect on local communities. The cultural managers are trained during four international seminars, get a vocational placement at a partner organization and receive funding.

The program contributes to the establishment of long-term partnerships and the qualification of cultural mediators who campaign for the fortification of civil society and European relations by strategic and lasting cooperation across national borders.

The growing network of actors from the cultural field, the arts, administration, and social entrepreneurs fosters knowledge exchange in Europe in the field of social innovation.

Tandem Europe is an initiative of European Cultural Foundation and MitOst e.V., supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung, Fondazione Cariplo foundation and Stavros Niarchos.
