Tandem Network

Past and current participants of all the Tandem programmes together form the Tandem Network, or Tandem family as we sometimes call it. They can continue sharing experiences, seeking project partners and exchange best practices as part of this ever-growing network.

The Tandem Network sets out to offer continued support beyond the Tandem project period, with the aim to sustainably develop the network of cultural actors and activists, as well as consolidating existing Tandem contacts.

To support the ongoing exchange among Tandem alumni and continue border crossing between disciplines, cultures and countries, alumni can make use of:

Network activities
: all alumni can apply for support and funding to realise small projects, which can be a continuation of their Tandem project or a new collaboration among the Tandem alumni network. There is currently no grant available for network activities.

Mobility grants: The mobility grant encourages the alumni network to attend events and meetings and thus sustain a strong international connectivity. A maximum of 500,00 EUR per mobility can be applied for. This can cover up to 70% of travel expenses, 30% of the travel have to be co-funded through personal contribution, which can also be in-kind, e.g. private accommodation. More information and the application form here.

Administratively, the network is located at MitOst e.V. and supported by MitOst staff. The mobility grant is funded by European Cultural Foundation.
