Call for participation: a staff-exchange project between Brittany region and Europe



Come and See / Go and See
A Staff-Exchange project between Brittany and Europe

Elven city theatres and festivals* from the Brittany region (France) have come together with the wish to meet with the diversity of professional realities in the field of culture on a European scale.
Single or multidisciplinary scenes, these cultural actors share the values of artistic dissemination focused on contemporary creation, and a particular attention towards awareness and training of different audiences.

Come and see / Go and see is imagined as a two-way staff-exchange between Brittany and European based cultural actors.

The duration of the stay is to be determined together, according to a jointly established schedule.  Each participant would be responsible for its own travel costs.

The stay (accommodation, meals, local travel) would be at the expense of the host in Brittany and in Europe.

This project is based on two wishes:
• Make Europe and build cultural projects that nurture a sense of belonging to Europe.
• In a context of change, and in particular when it comes to the economic models of culture, there is a need to question professional practices in order to be open towards multiple approaches and know-hows specific to the cultural sector: cultural rights, outreach and audience engagement, support for creation, civic issues at stake in the act of programming…

You are a European cultural actor from the performing arts?

You are curious about the realities of your European colleagues?
You want to exchange your know-how?
You want to “go and see”, but also invite to “come and see”?
Speaking English with Frenchmen/women doesn’t scare you?
You want to do something to make Europe concrete?

The staff exchanges would run between spring 2020 – summer 2022
THIS EXCHANGE IS FOR YOU, WRITE TO US @ before the 25th of January 2020.
