Joining Creative Europe Workshop


‘Joining Creative Europe’ brought together 35 creative professionals from 10 European countries.
Together, we generated more than 20 project ideas, analysed 6 case studies, discussed creative collaboration in 5 modules, and had inspiring discussions and encounters. A big thanks to the 35 creatives from 10 countries for an inspiring event!

This workshop helped cultural and creative organisations to prepare European project collaborations and networks. Led by a team of international experts, participants will learn about the new funding mechanisms, gain insights in the application process and develop their ideas with colleagues from all of Europe. 


This event is in the past. Please sign up for the newsletter to receive an invitation to the next seminar and other activities.

2) Develop Your Ideas

This workshop will focus on the new funding priorities and present European projects that implemented these successfully.

arrow-circleSuccessful applications combine the strengths of the applicants with the funding priorities of the programme. Once it is clear what the EU wants to achieve and why, it becomes easier to present your ideas in the right light and write a targeted, successful proposal. -> to registration

Take-Away: Your Creative’s Europe Connect Online Profile – for finding new collaboration partners


3) Meet Your Future Partners

Network with creatives and cultural organisations from different European countries throughout the workshop. You will exchange ideas with organisations that share your interests and that can complement your ideas.

arrow-circleAll European Culture Projects require a collaboration between at least 3 countries. Even with an extensive international network, it can be difficult to identify the right partners for your project, let alone agree on its contents and the division of tasks. -> to registration

Take-Away:  Creative’s Europe Connect Partner Book – listings of potential project partners


4) Learn the Key Factors for Successful Proposals

You will receive practical tips and tricks for proposal preparation from experienced practitioners. With their input, you will develop a draft action plan for your proposal preparation. 

arrow-circlePreparing successful proposals can take anything from a few months to several years. The  time needed depends on your knowledge of the application process and success criteria. Getting support from people who have already applied and managed European projects successfully makes all the difference.

  1. Hi,

    We just paid for three tickets and were then informed via email of the friend discount of 25%. Is there any chance this could still apply as, if we had checked the confirmation email in between bookings, we could have forwarded for discount for two people lie this?

    Please do let me know.

    Thank you!
