Do you as an individual, organisation, local administration or creative enterprise engage in innovative cultural work or community based activities that tackle social challenges? If yes, then apply for the Tandem Europe program!
Tandem Europe is a cross-border collaboration program that aims at social change through cultural innovation activities.
For new edition of Tandem Europe, they are look for applicants who work across a variety of urban or rural areas and local contexts all over Europe. Future Tandem Europe participants typically manage smaller or larger cultural organisations (non-profit or public funded), work for culturally engaged local administrations or run socially orientated creative enterprises. Participants share a strong enthusiasm for creative discovery and innovation across European borders, societies, cultures, sectors and artistic disciplines. They embrace the joy of making new things happen together by engaging in unusual transnational encounters. With Tandem, applicants join a growing community of cultural innovators and social change makers, who are deeply engaged in maintaining and reshaping a common European future.

For the main programme phase, up to 12 Tandems are selected. Each new collaboration pair benefits from a placement opportunity at their Tandem-partner organisation abroad, three peer-to-peer innovation, learning and networking meetings as well as financial and mentoring support to prototype their collaboration ideas.
