Tandem is a learning-by-doing-it-together programme that supports social change through cultural action. It’s a platform for project initiators to develop new skills, innovate practices and connect to international networks.

Tandem offers a space to build sustainable partnerships that  grow through shared values.

Our vision is to see networks of creative communities emerge from this programme, and our mission is to support the impact of their ongoing efforts.

The goal of the Tandem Ukraine upcoming round is to support newcomers in entering the international cultural stage and allow more experienced actors to reinvent their roles. The programme design invites you to connect locally with new and existing stakeholders, while at the same time establish lasting connections with partners on the international level.
