An update on the training events included in the Chebec project

Econcult continues to work on the formative cycle of the Interreg MED Chebec project, in which 14 Valencian cultural and creative organisations are receiving training with the objective of improving their competences in the area of internationalisation. Up to this point, 4 sessions have taken placen, meaning that we have hit the half-way point of the programme. These sessions have served to prepare attendees for their participation in the first conference on international mobility, currently taking place in Seville.

The second session took place on the 22nd of February, with Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio as speaker. The session, titled “Cultura Mobility: Agents, Challenges and International Opportunities” consisted of a hands-on workshop in which attendees could reflect on the importance of artistic mobility, its challenges, and the main international networks for its promotion.

The third session, hosted on the 6th of March, included three separate presentations. The first to take part was Pilar Rodrigo, representing ICEX Valencia, who spoke about the range of opportunities that the ICEX offers to organisations seeking to become more international. Augusto Paramio (Director of the Creative Europe and Europe for Citizens offices – dependent of the Ministry of Culture and Sports) provided details about the organisation and mechanisms of the Creative Europe and Europe for Citizens projects.

Dorothee Fischer, a communications and European programmes expert, took the last turn to speak about the different instruments available to organisations to fund their internationalisation processes, as well as the different programmes and European funding initiatives at their disposal.

Lastly, the session on Friday 29th March was led by Jean-François Alberghi, from EuroImpulse. Jean-François laid out a hands-on workshop giving strategic guidance on European funding options. The objective of the session was to instigate attendees to analyse the different elements of their projects and to identify the most appropriate funding streams.
