P2P EXCHANGE PROGRAM
The Creative FLIP P2P exchange program is aimed at engaging leading, established, and innovative creative hubs with peers from emerging creative hubs across Europe, as well as with relevant educational institutions. The idea of the exchanges is to seek new formats of cross-sectorial cooperation between creative hubs and the educational sector, initiate projects of co-creation or collaborative plans, as well as to share knowledge and expertise across Europe through public and/or community events.
During 2019-2020, Creative FLIP will organize and support 50 exchanges between creative hubs throughout the EU and its neighborhood. Each exchange will support a team of two hub representatives – a member of the hub managing team and a hub member - providing an opportunity to a total of 100 individuals to experience working in a different creative hub, as well as to engage in a mutual learning experience with their hosts. Thus, the program will engage around 200 direct beneficiaries, with many more taking part indirectly by attending the resulting public programs.
The exchange will take place in two rounds:
The 1st round will feature 10 exchanges scheduled to take place in September – November 2019. As a pilot scheme, it is aimed exclusively at the members of European Creative Hubs Network through a closed call for applications. It will serve to test the new format of the visit and draw any potential lessons for improvement for the next round.
The 2nd round, taking place in 2020, will support a total of 40 exchanges and will be open to all interested hubs across Europe.
We are pleased to announce the results of the second round of Creative FLIP’s Peer-to-peer program. This round will include 30 exchanges as, according to the evaluation procedure, 30 applications met the required criteria. The P2P program is aiming at exchanging best practices, linking creative hubs and the educational sector, co-creating projects and collaborative plans between the participants.
