Free event! Culture in Motion – European culture networks and the value of connecting: Galway 27th June 2019

Connecting with a European cultural network can open doors to new opportunities, co-creation, learning, information sharing, new ideas and much more. It can lead to partnerships and projects with like-minded organisations from across Europe and enable you to apply for EU funding programmes including Creative Europe. There is a wide range of European cultural networks across many different activities and practices, from informal alliances of culture professionals to formalised membership bodies.


As we approach Galway's designated year as European Capital of Culture in 2020 this FREE seminar presents a few of these networks and will explore how they work and how they can contribute to the work of culture organisations and individuals. The session will also explore cultural mobility and the benefits and challenges of undertaking mobility opportunities and collaborations with partners in other countries.


If you want to get a better insight into what European networking and collaborations could bring you then sign up to hear from a range of speakers as they share their experiences. Join us afterwards to mingle and chat over a glass of wine at our networking reception.


When:  2.30pm – 6.30pm | Thursday 27th June 2019

Where:  Pálás Cinema, 15 Merchants Road Lower, Galway
