Tandem Shaml

Tandem Shaml supports experimental and lasting collaborations between change makers from the Arab region and Europe. For one year cultural actors work in tandems and as a group: being part of a larger network and sharing good practice. Joint projects confront global challenges like migration and support local community development by linking local people, places, art forms and ideas.

يدعم تاندم شمل شراكات تجريبية وطويلة الأمد بين صانعي التغيير من المنطقة العربية وأوروبا. لمدّة سنة واحدة، يعمل الفاعلون في ثنائيات وضمن مجموعة. أن تكون جزءاً من شبكةٍ أوسع وتتشارك معها ممارسات مهنية جيّدة. المشاريع المشتركة تضع المشاركين في مواجهة تحديات عالمية كالهجرة ودعم المجتمعات المحلية بالتشبيك بين الناس والأماكن وأشكال الفنون والأفكار على مستوى محلّي ودولي.

Tandem Shaml Soutient des collaborations expérimentales et de longue durée entre les acteurs du changement provenant du Monde Arabe et d’Europe. Pendant une année, des acteurs culturels travaillent en tandems et en tant qu’un seul groupe: faire partie d’un large réseau et partager les bonnes pratiques. Les projets joints font face à des défis mondiaux tels que la migration, le soutien du development des communautés locales et celà en créant des liens au niveau local entre les gens, les espaces, les formes d’art et les idées.
