The Creative Europe Desk Northern Ireland and the Creative Europe Desk Ireland present a webinar on cultural networks and the value of connecting.
Connecting with an international cultural network can open doors to new opportunities, co-creation, learning, information sharing, new ideas and much more. It can lead to partnerships and projects with like-minded organisations from across Europe and further afield and enable you to access international funding. There is a wide range of international cultural networks, many funded by Creative Europe, across different activities and practices, from informal alliances of culture professionals, to formalised membership bodies. The aim of this seminar is to present a few of these networks and to explore how they work and how they can contribute to the work of culture organisations and individuals.
At this juncture there are many challenges facing artists and cultural organisations; from the pressures of Covid-19 to navigating the changing relationship between the UK, Ireland and the rest of Europe. We hope to explore how international connections can persist in this time and what benefits they can bring us.
We will be joined by the following speakers who will share their experiences of being involved in a network.
Niamh Flannigan , Theatre and Dance Northern Ireland | IETM network
Niamh Brown, Co-Director, Ormston House (Limerick) | AIM
David Boyd, Beat Carnival (Belfast) | Trans Europe Halles
