Tandem 360° is a new addition to the six existing Tandem programmes for cultural exchange. This open call was planned to be published right before the pandemic of the coronavirus has affected us all globally. This situation has proven more than ever that systems need to be questioned and changed, also in the cultural sector and among civil society.
Tandem has always been about fostering initiatives creating spaces to allow such questions to be asked, and where possible, worked on and transformed into change to build stronger communities locally in the regions where they work. And more than ever, they do need a 360° perspective. By focusing on the idea of a 360° perspective on the work and activities of cultural organisations in the selected countries, this programme allows professionals working in culture and civil society from many different disciplines to acquire skills required for ecosystem mapping – i.e. looking at not only who they are, why they do what they do, but also at the tools and resources each organisation has or needs to be able to function – and engaging in long-term partnerships.
