The BECC is a Europe-wide staff exchange programme. It aims at enabling locally based cultural workers to go abroad for a short stay with a cultural organisation in another country to exchange good practices, acquire new skills and knowledge and build long-term partnerships.
Every staff member of a cultural centre can participate - no matter if manager, professional, technician, artist, project coordinator, trainee or volunteer.
The BECC programme consists of a preparation seminar that will take place in Aarhus, Denmark on the 5th and 6th of June and the exchange of 16 cultural professionals from all over Europe from July to December 2013.
Conditions of participation: the participants will be reimbursed for their travel costs during the preparation seminar in Aarhus (up to 250 EUR) and will receive free accomodation and meals. They will also receive up to 250 EUR to cover the costs of going on exchange. The participating centres are expected to pay a participants fee of 200 EUR and to provide accommodation to the person they will host at their centre.
