Tandem Turkey 2016-2017

Tandem: Cultural Managers Exchange Program Turkey – European Union

The open call announced for Tandem Turkey IV received 50 applications from 20 different cities from Turkey while 65 applications were made from 23 different EU countries. In total 36 representatives of culture and art organizations, who have passed the preselection, were invited to meet each other at the 'Partner Forum' in Izmir in June 2016. The participants were matched during the Partner Forum and developed their collaboration project ideas.

After the jury evaluation, 18 cultural managers and their organisations selected to take part in Tandem Turkey IV were announced: 9 participants from from Turkey (Batman, Datça, Gaziantep, İstanbul, İzmir and Mardin) and 9 from Europe (Bulgaria, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Slovenia, Romania, Poland and Greece). In total, 9 Tandem projects were supported during the program.

After several joint meetings with all the participants, the Final Meeting was held in Odesa, Ukraine in September 2017, in parallel to the closing meetings of Tandem Ukraine and Tandem Shaml programmes. Following the Final Meeting, we had the Tandem Network Meeting, which provided the participants a chance to meet with the wider network composed of the participants from different Tandem programmes and present their works through several workshops.

Tandem Turkey is an initiative of the European Cultural Foundation (Amsterdam), MitOst e.V. (Berlin), Anadolu Kültür (İstanbul), and supported by Stiftung Mercator (Essen).
