Creative Scene Producer, Vicky Holliday chosen to participate in TANDEM – a trans-national cultural collaboration

Vicky and Fanni - Taking Our Place / Making Our Place

We are delighted to announce that our Cultural Producer Vicky Holliday has been selected to work on behalf of Creative Scene with Fanni Nánay from Artopolis Association in Budapest as one of 30 organisations from 13 countries on the TANDEM programme.

TANDEM is an exchange programme that assists cultural organisations in developing long-term working relationships, knowledge development and networking opportunities with project partners from Europe and beyond.

Our project entitled: ‘Taking our Place / Making Our Place’ will seek to develop a positive identity of place by involving local people and cross sector partners in the collaborative commissioning of culture in our area. Across two countries Vicky and Fanni will find the universal tools to build a new, more sustainable model for building art projects with communities.

As part of the TANDEM programme partners make working visits to each other’s’ offices and work on an artistic co-production. Throughout the year, the TANDEM group meets for networking, workshops and mentoring. At the end of the project there is a final presentation and the opportunity to connect to the growing pan-European TANDEM network.

We look forward to reporting back on developments over the coming months.
