Deadline: May 16th, 2021
The Creative FLIP P2P exchange program aims at connecting leading, established, and innovative creative hubs with peers from emerging creative hubs across Europe. The idea of the exchanges is to seek new formats of cross-sectoral cooperation, initiate collaborative projects, as well as to share knowledge and expertise across Europe through public and/or community events.
With the advent of covid and the resultant restriction in movement, there is a need for knowledge exchange more than ever, especially concerning knowledge on how to tackle the new challenges that have arisen in the past year.
The second round of P2P exchanges met the outbreak of the pandemic, hindering most of the physical exchanges from taking place. Yet some of them moved to the digital sphere, generating interesting outputs and conclusions. The importance of knowledge exchange between peers was stressed out during the pandemic, as the shift from physical to digital interaction requires new skills and competences.
This third round of the P2P program is therefore aiming to tackle this gap of know-how by detecting and highlighting good practices that emerged during the crisis by the creative sector, but also by facilitating the sharing of these new methodologies and ideas in an interactive way.
Inspired by the Creatives Unite platform and its vision to gather creative initiatives and make them available to the creative sector, the third round of P2P is focused on peer knowledge exchange by matching the needs or problems that emerged for the creatives with the solutions generated by creatives.
How to apply
The applicants are requested to submit their innovative ideas, methods and practices that occurred from the restrictions that the pandemic brought. These ideas must have been already successfully tested and implemented. A detailed description of their ideas and the implementation process is required for the application.
Successful applicants will be invited to:
- present their ideas through an open event for peers and interested parties;
- make themselves available for the period of one month on a weekly basis for one- on- one meetings and communication with peers that are interested in their practice.
- create an inspirational tool of their choice (a video, a toolkit, a guide, a handbook, etc.) by the end of the program.
- selected initiatives will be showcased at the Creative FLIP’s final conference.
A dedicated platform, embedded in the Creative FLIP website, is going to facilitate the exchange between ambassadors and participants and will also gather the tools of good practices generated by the ambassadors.
The program will run for one month (June 2021) through a dedicated platform that will facilitate the exchange between the selected participants and their peers.
An opening event will be held and kickstart the month of exchange between peers.
During this month, the ambassadors will make themselves available for questions and one-on-one meetings upon request on a weekly basis.
By the end of the project, they will be invited to submit an inspiring tool to be uploaded on the platform that can be easily used by peers to implement the idea in their own hub.
