Call for applications

Applications are now open for the 2020 Bridge between European Cultural Centres (BECC), the ENCC’s flagship capacity-building programme for young culture professionals. BECC combines training, a staff exchange and mentoring, and is open to ENCC members as well as non-members. This year we’ll take 12 selected participants to Turin, Italy, in March 2020, for a 4-day kickoff seminar in preparation of staff exchanges of a week or more in another cultural organisation in Europe (or beyond).

What’s it about?
Working with Hyperdiverse Audiences: Needs, Challenges and Opportunities is the topic of BECC 2020. It’s targeted to young professionals from cultural centres and other organisations, working with communities gathering many different nationalities, languages, cultures, age groups, gender settings and social-economic backgrounds.

Who can apply? 
Junior professionals under 35, working in a cultural centre or another type of cultural organisation inside or outside the European Union. You must be involved in decision-making about your organisation’s programme, and have at least 1 year of experience working with a diverse community. You should also be strongly motivated to develop new models of local cooperation and community development, and be fluent in English.
