Arts and culture practitioners selected for this programme will have 2-3 years working experience in the field of performing arts, visual arts, (new) media, art management, film as well as project co-ordination, art development or management at a local/regional level in their country and want to add an international dimension to their work. Thanks to a large network of cultural organisations throughout Europe and beyond, Gulliver Connect offers hands-on work experience. It makes a unique contribution by providing an extensive range of host organisations to match the individual talents of young people. And it enables the host organisations to find valuable working partners in future. The work placements will lead to new professional skills and establish new forms of international co-operation. Both the visitor and the host organisation benefit from exposure to each other's working practices. They share information, experiences and ideas, and establish far-reaching professional contacts. By creating a dynamic network, Gulliver Connect adds a new dimension to the social, artistic and cultural development of Europe and beyond - a stepping stone for future co-operation in the arts.
