Application deadline: 15 December 2008
The Gulliver Connect programme provides a flexible work placement and training framework in order to promote international co-operation among professional arts and culture practitioners from the European Union, Russia and countries from the Former Soviet Union.
Thanks to a large network of cultural organisations throughout Europe and beyond, Gulliver Connect offers hands-on work experience. It makes a unique contribution by providing an extensive range of host organisations to match the individual talents of young people. And it enables the host organisations to find valuable working partners in future.
The work placements will lead to new professional skills and establish new forms of international co-operation. Both the visitor and the host organisation benefit from exposure to each other’s working practices. They share information, experiences and ideas, and establish far-reaching professional contacts.
By creating a dynamic network, Gulliver Connect adds a new dimension to the social, artistic and cultural development of Europe and beyond – a stepping stone for future co-operation in the arts.
This new call for applications is for those who wish to apply as visitor and/or host organisation from Albania, Austria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, Hungary, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Ukraine.
Candidates are arts practitioners with 2-3 years working experience in the field of performing arts, visual arts, (new) media, arts management, film as well as project co-ordination, art development or management at a local/regional level in their country and who want to add an international dimension to their work.
Bursaries of approximately 1.500 euros each will be available to cover the costs for the work placement, travel, accommodation and daily allowance for a period of 3 – 6 weeks, if feasible within the budget.
The deadline for applications is December 15, 2008. All applicants will be informed by January 31, 2009. Actual placements will take place between March 15 and December 15, 2009.
