Med Culture Capacity Development workshops 2016 on “Cultural Entrepreneurship” – Tunis,Tunisia (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: October 21st 2016

Med Culture, an EU-funded Regional Programme, is launching another call for participation in two Peer to Peer (P2P) workshops, this time addressing the theme “Cultural Entrepreneurship: Create your own business model!” .

Capacity development is a Med Culture core activity that provides cultural practitioners working in different cultural fields, both from the civil society and public sectors, with the opportunity to discuss common challenges and share experiences with their peers in the involved South Mediterranean countries.

The current P2P format is based on selecting candidates through an open call, which allows broader segments of cultural practitioners to participate. The workshops provide participants with the possibility to get input from the facilitating experts and have fruitful exchanges with their peers.

The call is targeting 20 cultural practitioners from South Mediterranean countries, aged between 25 and 45 years at the time of application.

Selected candidates will participate in two capacity development workshops:

  • The first 3-day workshop is scheduled to take place in Tunis from 17-19 December, 2016
  • The second workshop will be scheduled in February 2017 (host-country yet to be determined)

What is expected from the selected candidates?

The present call is an open invitation to cultural practitioners to share their experiences, enrich their capacities while exchanging and reflecting on the theme of cultural entrepreneurship.

Selection process: candidates are selected based on their CV and a motivation letter explaining their interest in joining these workshops. The selection jury is composed of experts including one member of Med Culture team.
