Tandem Turkey 2015-2016

Tandem: Cultural Managers Exchange Program Turkey – European Union

The open call announced for Tandem Turkey III received 52 applications from 15 different cities from Turkey while 86 applications were made from 23 different EU countries. In total 28 representatives of culture and art organizations, who have passed the preselection, were invited to meet each other at the 'Partner Forum' in Izmir. The participants were matched during the Partner Forum and developed their collaboration project ideas.

After the jury evaluation, 21 cultural managers and their organisations selected to take part in Tandem Turkey III were announced: 11 participants from from Turkey (Adıyaman, Ankara, Antalya, İstanbul, İzmir Konya, Mersin and Sinop) and 10 from Europe (Germany, France, Sweden, Ireland, Hungary, Romania and Greece). In total,10 Tandem projects were supported during the program.

After several joint meetings with all the participants, the Final Meeting was held in Berlin in September 2016, with a closing exhibition of the project outputs of Tandems. Following the meeting, we had the Tandem Network Day, which provided the opportunity for the participants to meet with the wider network composed of the participants from different Tandem programmes.

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