ENCC > Incubator Programme (Remote / Spain)

Incubator is one of ENCC’s flagship capacity building programmes. It supports mid-to-senior-levels professionals from cultural centres and other cultural organisations who want to develop a European cooperation project.

Incubator aims at strengthening individual cultural centres (especially ENCC members, and members of ENCC members), and encouraging them to consider ‘going European’. It's also a laboratory for innovation and transversal cooperation in the network, and for building the ENCC learning community at large.

This year, 9 projects will be selected for support. ENCC members are the main targets of the programme, which is fully funded for them. There are also a few slots for non-members to participate. Training costs are covered for non-member participants, though they will have to pay a small participation fee if they are selected, and will be responsible for travel costs. If you are not a member of ENCC, your project will have more chances of being supported if it is related to one of the following topics:

  • Diversity, equality, inclusion in culture and in cultural organisations.

  • Non-urban culture.

  • Creating a (local, regional or national) cultural network.

  • Cultural centres.

The programme includes:

  • First feedback and mentoring on your project.

  • A 3-day intensive consultancy retreat, with one-on-one sessions with an expert on international cooperation projects, but also keynotes, debates, peer-to-peer sessions and study visits.

  • Support in identifying partners.

  • 1 session follow-up after the retreat and before the funding application deadline.

The Incubator consultancy retreat is an intensive workshop with customised support. It is currently scheduled to happen at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), on 23-25 June 2021.

Deadline (extended): 8 March 2021
