Tandem Ukraine

TANDEM Ukraine: 28 organisations selected

Following a jury selection, 12 Tandems have been invited to the main phase of the TANDEM programme ‘Dialogue for Change’, a new TANDEM programme launched in September 2014 to support cultural organisations building cross-border partnerships between Ukraine and EU.

Since the Partner Forum in Lviv in November 2014, where 20 Ukrainian cultural change makers met up with 20 of their EU-based counterparts, 17 collaboration proposals were submitted to the TANDEM jury. They selected 12 Tandems, including 2 trios and 1 double Tandem, to continue to the main phase of the programme. The collaboration plans show promising partnerships that can support social cohesion and civic engagement through innovative, cross-border arts projects.

Below is a list of the selected Tandems, you can find more information on their collaboration plans on TANDEM exchange’s People & Projects page.
