Tandem Turkey

Tandem Turkey aims at establishing long-term partnerships between cultural organisations from Turkey and the EU countries. The political landscape across the EU, Turkey and the neighbouring regions has substantially changed since Tandem Turkey started in 2011. In times of harshening working circumstances for cultural actors in Turkey and a vanishing EU integration perspective, building robust long-term collaboration channels between Turkey and the EU has become ever more essential.

Tandem’e 2011 yılında pilot program olarak başladığımızdan bu yana AB ülkeleri, Türkiye ve komşu ülkelerde siyasi durum ciddi ölçüde değişti. Türkiye’deki kültür aktörleri için zorlaşan çalışma koşulları ve AB’ye entegrasyon sürecinde Türkiye’nin durumu göz önünde bulundurulduğunda kalıcı, uzun vadeli AB-Türkiye iş birliği kanallarının oluşturulması daha da önemli hale geldi.
