Tandem Shaml V Partner Forum Participants Announced

Following the Tandem Shaml V call for application, we have received a total of 262 applications from from the eligible Arab and European countries.

We have received many high-quality applications, which made the selection process exciting and challenging as the Jury had to select only 30 culture managers representing 30 organisations: 15 from Arab countries and 15 from European countries.

We are now happy to announce the names of the people and organisations that have been selected to take part in the Tandem Shaml V Partner Forum in Hammamet, Tunisia from Tuesday 19 to Sunday 24 June 2018.

About the Partner Forum

During the Partner Forum, the invited culture managers will meet and have a few days to get to know each other and be introduced to the Tandem programme.

This will help them decide with which partner they would like to cooperate and formulate a collaboration proposal.
It can happen that participants cannot find a partner during the Forum, we do hope that this will still be an inspiring opportunity for networking.

The list of selected participants is only for the Tandem Partner Forum. After this meeting, there will be a second application call and selection procedure to choose the Tandems that will join the main phase of the programme.

Tandem Shaml – Cultural Managers Exchange Europe – Arab Region is an initiative which was developed by the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam) and MitOst (Berlin) in collaboration with Culture Resource (Arab Region). The programme is supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung (Stuttgart), the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (Abu Dhabi), Stichting DOEN (Amsterdam) and Mimeta (Norway).
