Kooperativa: REG.Lab Mentorship Programme for Organisations in the Western Balkans

A zigzagging line moves between the words 'Reg' (regional) and 'Lab' via the phrase 'Mentorship Programme'.

The regional arts platform Kooperativa is inviting applications for its Mentorship Programme, designed to help build the knowledge and skills needed for the successful implementation of transnational cultural programs (digital tools, audience engagement, technical production, innovative management models, advanced international programming, etc.). The programme will start in October 2021 and will end in February 2022 at the latest.

The Mentorship Programme is part of the project Regional Lab: New Culture Spaces and Networks as drivers of an Innovative and Sustainable Bottom-up Development of Regional Collaboration granted by Creative Europe: Sub-programme – Western Balkans Cooperation projects – 2020.
