Current Projects

FACE encourages the cultural field to develop formal and informal collaborations in order to answer immediate needs, but also to tackle new challenges related to the future development of their work – such as the use of digital technologies, innovative approaches to audience engagement, or the testing of new business and management models.

SHIFT-Shared Initiatives for Training (2019-2021)

FACE is part of the new Erasmus+ project SHIFT, with eight other European platforms. The project, coordinated by the European Music Council, starts in December 2019 and runs until December 2021.

In today’s rapidly changing world, it is a great challenge to create a path for sustainable societies working together to face global challenges such as climate change, gender equality or inclusion of minorities. Arts and culture have a recognised role in shaping societies and have the potential to significantly contribute to a better and more sustainable future for all, as demanded by the UN with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The project SHIFT aims to provide training and skills for cultural leaders, specifically those of cultural networks. Cultural leaders shall be enabled to implement changes where needed and to pass on their knowledge gained through the project to leaders and staff members of their network and to the broader cultural sector. The partners will produce online manuals and guidelines during these two next years on the following themes: Cultural leadership, Climate change, Gender and power relations, Inclusion.

The project is coordinated by EMC-European Music Council and gathers: ECA-EC-European Choral Association - Europa Cantat, ELIA-European League of Institutes of the Arts, EMCY-European Union of Music Competitions for Youth, FACE-Fresh Arts Coalition Europe, IETM - International network for contemporary performing arts, IMC-International Music Council
OTM-On the Move, TEH-Trans Europe Halles.
