#TandemFacetoFace. Photo by Constanze Flamme Tandem Shaml Needs You! Share the new Tandem Shaml open call face to face and let’s grow the Tandem family together. Throughout the month of March, help us spread the word about the Tandem Shaml 2018 call (deadline to apply is 29 March 2018). We know you can easily do it online, by sharing the call through email, social media, on your website and newsletter… but we want to propose a different way: take this opportunity to meet someone in your network face to face. If you know someone you think could benefit from the Tandem Shaml programme, contact them and invite them for a face to face talk: take them to one of your favourite places: local cafe, cultural space, public space… And tell them why you think they should apply for Tandem Shaml. You could leave it here, but we would love to be part of your conversation. We therefore invite you to share your #TandemFacetoFace #تاندم_شمل_يلا_نحكي on social media. Take a selfie or, if you don’t like selfies, a picture of an object around you that you both found interesting (maybe it’s a weird shaped glass your beverage came in, an advertising poster, a friendly dog, a feather that fell on your table while you were sharing your dreams for a better world…) Add a word or a sentence about what you discovered you had in common (something unexpected maybe? e.g. how surprised you both were to see that feather land in your coffee) Post the picture and your word(s) on Facebook and/or Instagram using #TandemFacetoFace, #تاندم_شمل_يلا_نحكي and #TandemShaml We are aware that we are asking you to to go offline to then come back online. We hope that this way, we will invite more people to participate in #TandemFacetoFace #تاندم_شمل_يلا_نحكي and share their enthusiasm for Tandem Shaml. Also, we are very much looking forward to seeing your selfies, objects and thoughts enriching the social media spaces. There are no hard rules here: you can meet more than one person if you wish, and, of course, you can apply yourself! Who knows, maybe someone will invite you for a #TandemFacetoFace #تاندم_شمل_يلا_نحكي. Thank you for helping us spread the word about the Tandem Shaml open call!
