Many internationalisation programmes throughout Europe came to life at the initiative of local or national agencies, governments and institutions, as well as European networks and projects. Nevertheless, performing arts professionals are not always well-equipped when it comes to researching and developing international opportunities.
The project “Learning Trajectories” aims at mainstreaming best practices among intermediary organisations, as well as advancing the quality of mentoring programmes that support the internationalisation of the European arts and culture sector, and making them more accessible.
“Learning Trajectories” investigates ways to best design and implement mentoring programmes by supporting the international career development of cultural and creative professionals. They do this through three focal points:
- How to facilitate the access to key resources and relevant professional information from other contexts,
- Which mentoring methodologies and tools can be used and further developed in order to support cultural professionals
- How to organise curated mobility experiences and prospection trips.
OBJECTIVES OF THE INITIATIVE:
1. Design three guides/online practical toolkits.
2. Share/exchange best practices.
3. Develop new working methodologies.
