Hear insights and reflections from speakers who are experienced in developing and running European and international projects, and continue the conversation over a glass of wine and nibbles.

18.30 - 19.00 Welcome, and short panel discussion on the challenges and rewards of European collaboration

19.00 - 20.00 Networking with the speakers and other arts, creative and cultural professionals interested in European and international collaboration, including our Creative Europe Desk colleagues from Denmark and the Netherlands.

  • Dawn Walton, Founder of Eclipse Theatre Company, which is lead partner in Creative Europe Cooperation Project 'Slate: Black. Arts. World.' with partners in Portugal and the Netherlands. The overall aim of Slate is to increase the visibility and mobility of Black and Ethnic Minority artists through a two year capacity building programme that will provide artists and professionals with a set of experiences, skills and tools to develop new narratives on Europe’s racial identities.
  • More panellists to be announced in the coming weeks, representing projects from a variety of artforms and including perspectives from other European countries...
