Tandem Shaml is a cultural collaboration programme. During the Tandem year, cultural managers from all over Europe and the Arab region kick-start collaborations with a partner from abroad. Together, they design and test new ideas by realising a pilot project for their own local environment.
Tandem offers a space to build real, meaningful and sustainable relationships that can grow through shared artistic interests, enthusiasm for creative discovery and the joy of making things happen together. Tandem Shaml allows cultural professionals, including cultural managers and activists, and more, from many different disciplines to acquire skills required for engaging in long-
term partnerships. The Tandem process provides hands-on possibilities for getting real insights into European and Arab cultural scenes. Participants gain practical experience by
collaborating within rapidly changing fields in both regions.

Since its inception in 2011, Tandem has supported long-term collaborations, knowledge development and networking opportunities for more than 300 cultural managers from over 200 cities across the wider Europe. There are currently five running Tandem editions which focus on different regions and topics.


Tandem believes that the urgent cultural and social questions of our times can be addressed much more creatively and effectively through inspiring learning experiences when working with new organisations and across new localities. We believe these experiences can contribute to increasing empathy, building resilient civil society actors and and shaping a common future.

Our vision is to see strong networks of creative communities and cultural change makers emerge from this programme and to support the community impact they make.


Up to 26 applicants will be invited to the Tandem Shaml Partner Forum where they find many networking opportunities and most importantly – their potential Tandem partner. They apply together for the full programme with a specific collaboration plan and idea. 9 Tandems are then selected to continue the Tandem journey. Within each Tandem programme, participants form cross-national partnerships of two, aka tandems. These Tandem partners organise working visits to each other’s’ cities or regions and develop a joint pilot project which serves as a space for mutual learning and engagement. Throughout the year, participants meet for networking, workshops and peer-to-peer exchange. At the end of the project there is a final presentation and the opportunity to connect with the growing Tandem network. The programme acts on different levels, offering professional development to individuals, as well as supporting organisational change processes and creating a space to experiment with innovative ideas.


To take full advantage of the Tandem programme, you need to be curious, willing to work in a partnership and experiment beyond your own discipline(s), approaches and national borders. A constructive, generous and collaborative culture is central to Tandem’s way of  working. This creates positive growth for the participating individuals and organisations. You can but do not necessarily have to work for an arts organisation (see more details under eligibility). Regardless, you should be strongly interested in designing new formats of cultural-social work that engage communities in re-shaping their current and future realities, and motivated to explore unconventional ways of working together with a Tandem partner you don’t know yet. You should be committed to identify and pursue new ideas for cultural work that addresses urgent societal issues, both in your local community and beyond.

In short, Tandem offers:

• 12-day reciprocal working visit at your Tandem partner organisation
• 4 Tandem network and training meetings in the Arab World and Europe with moderated peer to peer learning sessions and input by experienced trainers
• Methods and Tools for professional and organisational development
• Ongoing expert advice for the development of the cross-border collaborations
• Start-up funding of EUR 5,000 for a pilot project to develop in collaboration with your Tandem partner
• Throughout the year, participants meet for networking, workshops and peer-to-peer exchange. At the end of the project there is a final presentation and the opportunity to connect with the growing Tandem network.
• Joining a network of ca. 300 cultural professionals across Europe and its neighbouring regions


Critères d'éligibilité

  • Independent cultural NGO, non-hierarchical and open-minded public institution or civil society initiative which is well rooted in a local community and has an established professional network and are based in the Arab region OR in a European country
  • You should have the (organisational and financial) capacity, ambition and experience to engage in a one year intensive international programme. And ready to commit to providing sufficient working time of one cultural manager
