Opening your projects and organisation to European cooperation will bring new, fresh ideas, partners that can help you fulfill your goals and peer exchanges that will improve skills and competences.
If you are considering leading a European project (Creative Europe or Erasmus +) or partnering in one, or if you want to get a better understanding of what European cooperation could bring you and how to approach it, this is a place to learn, connect and discuss with other project leaders or partners, cultural managers and experts.
If you already have a clearly -defined project, this can be a place to flesh it out, meet partners and receive expert advice.
The two-day Project Fair will be held at the Museu do Oriente on June 4 & 5, 2019. The first day will be dedicated to presentations of projects and best practices, as well as training sessions & workshops on European cooperation. On the second day, we'll meet for a networking brunch and study visits of cultural venues in Lisbon.
The Project Fair will be immediately followed by the Incubator Retreat. On June 5 & 6, five European cooperation project leaders will spend two more days in the Convento da Arrabida, near Lisbon, to focus on their projects with the ENCC team and outside experts & advisers.
The Project Fair is open to all arts and culture professionals. Attendees may either present a potential project, or come to get inspired and possibly join other organisations' projects. For the Incubator programme, which covers expenses for participants, including travel and accomodation, ENCC members are prioritary, but non-members may also apply.
Registration for the Project Fair, as well as the Incubator call for applications, will both open in January 2019.
More news soon about speakers, workshops and the project selection process.
