Creative Europe Desk Serbia is organising an info day about the Creative Europe programme in cooperation with the National Museum Vranje and the National library “Bora Stanković” on Thursday 28th February at 12 p.m. in the premises of the National Museum Vranje.
With the aim of adequate informing of cultural public about the programme and the competition procedure, i.e. what the easiest way to secure financial help is within the programme, will be discussed by Dimitrije Tadić, Head of the Creative Europe Desk Serbia.
The presentation is intended for representatives of cultural institutions and organisations from cities and municipalities in the South of Serbia – managers and employees of museums, theatres, libraries, archives, cultural centres and other cultural institutions and civil society organisations.
We are inviting all interested representatives of cultural institutions and organisations from Vranje and the surrounding areas to use this opportunity to find out more about the guidelines of competition calls which will be opened throughout the year: programme priorities, conditions when applying and specific questions related to the past participation of Serbia in the programme.
At the same time the event is also an opportunity to chat about potentials of project ideas of institutions and organisations from Vranje and the surrounding areas to achieve European cooperation within the Creative Europe programme.
12.00 – 12.45 Presentation of the Creative Europe programme,

Creative Europe programme is the main programme of the European Union for culture intended to support cooperation projects of cultural institutions and organisations from different European countries. The programme also supports initiatives to translate and promote literary works of European authors within the European Union and beyond, establishing networks that enable competitiveness and international activity of the cultural and the creative sectors, and also founding platforms for promotion of young talents, their works and projects. Creative Europe Desk Serbia is an implementation body of the Creative Europe programme, established within the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia. The task of the Desk is to offer support to cultural institutions and civil society organisations in the Republic of Serbia wanting to secure participation in the Creative Europe programme.
In May 2018, the European Commission published its Communication on “A New European Agenda for Culture”. The New Agenda proposes more direct action in relation to the mobility of artists and culture professionals, and more specifically to “encourage the mobility of professionals in the cultural and creative sectors and remove obstacles to their mobility.”
It is in this context that Goethe-Institut, Institut français, Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts and Izolyatsia will be launching a pilot mobility scheme for artists and culture professionals in April 2019. The Consortium partners are physically present in most of the countries concerned by this project, i.e. those eligible under the Creative Europe programme, including non-EU countries.
A pilot mobility platform will allow 500 artists and / or culture professionals to take part in this experimental program which will test different durations of mobility for different professional purposes over the course of six months. Between April 2019 and September 2019 candidates can apply for support to work abroad (within the countries mentioned under the Creative Europe programme).
More information on the project and the deadlines will follow on the mobility platform website in April 2019.
For more information, please send an email to: Eva.Blaute.firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the test phase of the mobility fund is launched, the partners invite artists and culture professionals to complete a short survey to contribute to the planning. This will help the partners fine-tune the pilot cultural mobility fund to ensure it meets the needs of the sector.
The questions are written in English, but answers can also be provided in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish. The survey is available here. All answers are anonymised.
DEADLINE: 25 FEBRUARY 2019
