The EU-funded Med Culture programme has launched a call for participation in a regional training of trainers programme (ToT) which will take place on 21-24 April 2017, and will include workshops and distance mentoring. This initiative will focus on “Advocacy for Culture”, identified as the main theme of the Med Culture programme for 2017.
This Training of Trainers Programme aims at understanding and exploring adult learning and providing the skills to design and deliver an educational programme (training/seminar/workshop) that’s appropriate to a chosen context. This initiative also aims at creating a particular community of practice in the region around teaching and learning in the cultural management and cultural policy field.
30 people from South Mediterranean countries, aged between 25 and 45 years, will be selected to take part in the ToT programme, which will include:
- one main workshop (4 days excluding travel), taking place in Rabat in April 2017 (for 30 participants), addressing the main issues related to training of trainers - design and delivery
- a second workshop (3 days), taking place in Tunis in July 2017 (open for 10 participants only), based on the projects elaborated by the participants in the interval after the first workshop.
- distance online mentoring sessions
The deadline for submitting applications: 17 February 2017.
Med Culture is an EU-funded regional programme that kicked off in February 2014 with the aim of sustaining the creation of institutional and social environments to support culture as a vector for freedom of expression and sustainable development. This should be accomplished by reinforcing the capacities of the public and private cultural sectors as vectors for democratisation, and economic and social development for societies in the Southern Mediterranean.
Med Culture is part of the regional programme "Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean" which has been allocated a total budget of EUR 17 million over a four-year period, of which EUR 9 million is for the award of grants on a co-financing basis, and EUR 8 million for one capacity-development mechanism on media (Med Media) and one capacity development mechanism on culture (Med Culture).
