We are currently in the process of applying for the EU grant “Strategic Partnerships” directed at youth organisations. With this grant we hope to establish a network of socially and environmentally conscious theatre and social entrepreneurship organisations throughout Europe.
We would very much appreciate your help in identifying potential partners. The types of groups we would be interested in working with include the following types of organisations:
- Groups that use theatre methods to tackle sustainability issues (including social, environmental and political themes);
- Social entrepreneurs working at the interface art and sustainability;
- Youth organisations with a focus on sustainability that are interested in working with theatre methods; and
- Education/Academic groups researching connections between art and sustainability.
The grant is quite substantial and would benefit all members of the network, and allow us to meet together in different parts of Europe and share expertise and experiences. It would include a small monthly fee for each cooperation partner, and a budget for travel and exchange between partners.
If you have any contacts that you think would be interested, could you please forward us their details so we can get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org). Alternatively, it would be great if you could directly share/forward this call with anyone you think would be interested.
Thanks! The FST-Team
