Pearle - EFA partnership, in context of RISE project funded under Creative Europe programme
CAPACITY BUILDING IN THE CONTEXT OF INTERNATIONALISATION,
CROSS-BORDER COOPERATION AND MOBILITY
The European Festival Association (EFA) and Pearle*-Live Performance Europe have teamed up to improve knowledge on legal and managerial aspects on cross-border cooperation.
In a series of 2,5 hour seminars or workshops spread over a period of more than 2 years a wide range of issues which either have a cross-border dimension or of common interest to many cultural managers across Europe, will be organised. A typical seminar or workshop will include the involvement of a legal expert other, the presentation of a case and a lot of interaction and exchange. Participants will be invited in advance to bring their questions along, so that at the end of the session they will have acquired knowledge and insight to tackle their case.
After every session a report will be drafted which will be at the disposal for anyone interested, but could not take part in the workshop. This way a knowledge centre will be built up of experts input, including description of cases and good practice examples.
Knowledge and access to information is key. With a lot of expertise available in the sector and in the members organisations and having access to experts in specific areas, international collaboration can be enhanced through training, exchange amongst peers, and through a practical and solution-oriented approach.
EFA and PEARLE members are invited to make proposals for topics to the steering committee. Depending on the issues raised, further in-depth research or articles on a specific subject from experts may be added. Articles can cover legal or managerial questions related to mobility (such as taxation, VAT, visas), access to audiences, financing and entrepreneurship.
In addition EFA and PEARLE members will be offered access to a series of easy reading booklets (supported by an online animation) will be produced which will provide access to information on the relationship between the daily management and the regulatory framework.
