TANDEM "Dialogue for Change"

Call for applications 2014-2015


Ukraine is a country in turmoil; major social and political changes have a
high impact on the understanding and communication between different groups
and regions in the country. Now, more than ever, there is an urgent need to
promote social cohesion and support the search for mutual understanding.
Arts and culture can play a crucial role as a uniting force between people.
The new TANDEM programme "Dialogue for Change" is based on our belief that,
especially in times of crisis and transition, working together on tangible
cross-border collaborations supports not only dialogue, but also allows for
the development of new forms of civic engagement, supporting a process of
social transformation.


TANDEM "Dialogue for Change" offers cultural and civil society

.         a platform for long-term cooperation between change agents from
Ukraine and the 28 EU member states to strengthen their capacities in
community development and conflict resolution through the arts

.         participation in a dynamic, intensive one-year programme with an
open and shared learning process (including expert impulses, peer-to-peer
exchange, work placements, study visits, network meetings)

.         the opportunity to co-create an innovative, interdisciplinary
pilot project, which enhances processes of community and social
transformation and strengthens local democratic dialogue

.         a growing pan-European network of cultural change makers


We are looking for independent cultural and civil society organisations

.         work in different areas of arts and culture, community
development, participation and engagement in the arts and non-formal
cultural education

.         co-design their cultural and social projects addressing challenges
in their communities and creating a space for mutual understanding between
various groups in society

.         are ready to share relevant experiences in conflict resolution,
social transformation or democratic dialogue processes and motivated to
experiment with new formats


Your organisation is eligible if: 

.         you are based in Ukraine or in one of the 28 EU member states

.         you have relevant skills, capacity and resources to participate in
the intensive one-year programme


English proficiency is an important condition for successful collaboration
within the TANDEM framework.


Selected participants receive reimbursement for travel and living costs and
a start-up grant for their joint TANDEM pilot project.
