For Tandem 360° the Tandem programme are looking for 20 civil society and cultural activists from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, and from Libyan initiatives and collectives displaced in these countries.
Tandem 360° is a new addition to the six existing Tandem programmes for cultural exchange. In the spirit of ‘doing-it-together’, the one-year programme offers a space to experiment with multidisciplinary project ideas, ecosystem mapping and inventive approaches to create change through culture. Activities take place from May 2020 to September 2021.
As with all Tandem programmes, participants form cross-national partnerships of two, aka tandems. These Tandem partners organise working visits to each others’ cities or regions and develop a joint pilot project which serves as a space for mutual learning and engagement.

Mutual 12-day work visits at your Tandem partner organisation.
4 Tandem network and training meetings with moderated peer-to-peer learning sessions and input by experienced trainers.
Methods and Tools for professional and organisational development.

Start-up funding of EUR 7,500 for a pilot project to develop in collaboration with your Tandem partner.

The programme is open to independent cultural NGOs, non-hierarchical and open-minded public institutions or civil society initiatives which are well rooted in a local community and have an established professional network, and which are based in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia. Applications are also strongly encouraged from displaced Libyan organisations based in these countries.
