If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Tandem team

Tandem Shaml supports experimental collaborations between cultural change makers from the Arab Region and Europe.

For the upcoming round, Tandem Shaml offers 16 cultural organisations, 8 from Europe and 8 from the Arab Region, the unique opportunity to establish cross-border cooperation links.

This exchange and knowledge development programme allows cultural professionals 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 will gain practical experiences in collaborating with rapidly changing fields in both regions.

Tandem Shaml is based on the organisers’ belief that working together on tangible cross-border initiatives creates fruitful cultural dialogue among different groups and engages and exposes distant communities to each other.

Who is Tandem Shaml for?

Tandem Shaml is designed to strengthen participants’ skills in the field of cross-cultural collaboration and organisational management. The programme addresses both young and experienced cultural managers and project coordinators with good command of English that represent independent cultural organisations that are well connected and active in their local communities.

What does the programme look like?

Tandem Shaml starts with a Partnership Forum from 15-20 September 2015. During the forum up to 12 shortlisted European cultural managers and their 12 Arab counterparts will identify their ideal collaboration partner and work on a co-creative project plan. The 8 most promising partnerships will be invited to the Kick-Off Meeting, taking place from 26-31 January 2016. Between February and November, participants join their Tandem partners during 10 to 14-day mutual professional Placements. During the placements, participants will work on their joint pilot project and gain insights in each other’s practices, communities and networks. At the Interim Meeting in June 2016, participants will exchange their placement experiences before presenting the results of their one year collaboration at the Final Meeting in November 2016.

Application deadline is end-of-day 22 June, 2015 (midnight CET).
