Bridge between European Cultural Centres (BECC)
Start date: Nov 1, 2009,
"Bridge Between European Cultural Centres" (BECC) is a residency programme that follows on from a piloting scheme organised by the European Network of Cultural Centres (ENCC) that took place in 2008-2009. It aims to enable 40 locally based cultural professionals to travel abroad for a period ranging from one week to six months and experience life at a cultural centre in another country. The long-term goal of the programme is to create a stable structure of 20 to 30 European cultural centres who are willing to work together in order to enhance the mobility of artists and cultural professionals. Cultural professionals from project partners and ENCC members are eligible for the scheme. While each centre will send and receive at least one cultural professional, the programme especially targets those from Central and Eastern Europe.
Two preparation seminars (March 2010, March 2011) will provide the participants with basic training, and two evaluation seminars (October 2010, October 2011) will help to identify and overcome the obstacles that currently exist for mobility between European cultural professionals. The final result of the programme will be found in the 'Guidelines for future participants' document which will reflect both the host and the travelling artist experience of the residency scheme.
