Tandem Family at the Network Meeting in Berlin. Photo by Olga Zarko Let’s Stick Together Write down 26 November in your agendas! We're celebrating 10 years of Tandem online and offline. Tandem 10 years. Illustration by Erica Brisson Summer has passed and we’re hoping many of you embraced the opportunity to immerse yourselves in other surroundings (just because we can again!) or at least found a place to recharge a bit. With summer fading, it is now about time to get back to reality, our daily lives and our work. Amongst rebuilding strength after (or in?) a challenging period, we hope there is also space for new ideas, initiatives and positive imagination. One festive moment we like to put on your agenda for this autumn is our Tandem 10 year anniversary: a celebratory moment in time to share with as many of you as possible, online and offline. The idea is simple; we meet online on Friday 26 November early evening (you can find the link of the Facebook event here). We can all connect online individually but we invite those of you who are interested, to host your own local gathering for all Tandemians close by. How does it work? You can offer whatever you like for your local gathering: maybe you’re already planning a performance for that evening and you invite some Tandemians to tag along, you open your space and invite people to bring drinks, or maybe you want to have a discussion or workshop on a specific topic. What you do and how you do it is totally up to you, as long as: it is open to other* Tandemians that live/stay close by and want to join you have a laptop with internet/WIFI connection so you’re able to meet online at a specific time with all others around Europe and neighbouring countries to collectively raise a toast to the Tandem anniversary! *any number you feel comfortable with Keywords: keep it easy, keep it simple and have a celebratory moment together (and maybe meet new people)! If you’re interested, please e-mail Silvana Nagib with a short description of what you’re planning to do by Sunday 17 October at the latest. Once all hosts will be collected, we will prepare a map (something like this) which will show all gatherings on offer, and those that are interested to join can sign up directly with a local host. It’s like Bryan Ferry sings; ‘Let’s Stick Together’ We hope to hear from you….. To Be Continued!
