Call for experts to support the European Capitals of Culture

The European Commission, Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG EAC), has commissioned the European Association for Information on Local Development (AEIDL) and its partners Culture Action Europe (CAE), Interarts - Fundació Interarts per a la cooperació cultural internacional and the European network on cultural management and policy (ENCATC) to create a pool of experts and provide capacity building services and peer-learning activities to upcoming European Capitals of Culture (ECOC).

The ‘Capacity Building for European Capitals of Culture’ project is seeking professionals from a variety of disciplines to join its pool of experts, with the aim is to help bridge skills gaps and build capacity in the implementing teams of European Capitals of Culture (ECOCs).

ECOCs teams will be able to tap into this pool of experts when searching for specific knowledge and skills, to help meet ECOCs’ key capacity building needs. In particular, experts are sought in the following areas: audience development, conflict resolution, change management, legal (including intellectual property rights and licensing agreements for culture), and monitoring and evaluation in the cultural sector. Experts in management, communications, coordination and international relations are also needed. The call for experts will remain open throughout the project.
