Open Call | Tandem Fryslan Project, The Netherlands

Application deadline: 30 September

In 2018, Leeuwarden – capital of the Dutch province Fryslân – will be the European Capital of Culture. The theme for the Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018 (LF2018) programme is “iepen mienskip – open community”, an approach also embraced by Tandem. This is why the organisers are joining forces with LF2018 to start a new programme: Tandem Fryslân, which will bring ideas and experiences from Frisian communities and wider Europe together.

Tandem is a cultural collaboration programme that strengthens communities and civil society in Europe. Tandem believes that the burning cultural and social questions of our times can be addressed much more creatively and effectively through inspiring learning experiences that are provided when collaborating with new organisations and across other realities and 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 on their communities and regions.

Following this call for applications, up to 24 applicants (12 from Fryslân and 12 from other European regions) will be invited to the Tandem Fryslân Partner Forum. Participants will find many networking opportunities and – most importantly – their potential Tandem Partner.

Once the partnerships are formed, each “tandem” will then apply for the full programme with a specific collaboration plan and idea. Seven tandems will be selected.

All Tandems will receive a modest project/production budget (4,500 Euro) for realising their pilot project (as a ‘prototype for their future collaborations after Tandem). You can use this ‘start-up capital’ to fundraise for additional production budget in the likely case that the means provided are not sufficient for realising your project. Accommodation, meals, transportation and other necessary expenses during the programme are covered by Tandem.

The diversity of the 2018-2019 Fulbright Irish Awards ranges from the Fulbright-Creative Ireland Museum Fellowships – offering post-graduate students the opportunity to complete short-term research at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, or the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. – to the Fulbright-HRB HealthImpact Awards, supporting health professionals to undertake research or professional development at a U.S. institution of their choice.
