Dear Swedish Institute Alumni,
Please see below the Call for Applications for you and your fellow countrymen from the Baltic Sea Region!
Following the successful pilot initiative of Balticlab Networking Weekend in 2012 and the Balticlab Project Development Programme in February 2013, the Council of the Baltic Sea States and the Swedish Institute launch Balticlab 2.0.
Balticlab 2.0 is a follow-up to its pilot initiative. The aim of Balticlab 2.0 is to bring young creative minds from the Baltic Sea region together into one space to explore new perspectives and sources of inspiration in the region. By providing opportunities for interdisciplinary talented individuals to network and come up with joint collaborations in the region, we aim to support their personal development as well as see their increased engagement in improving the region.
The project will continue with a new Networking Weekend in Stockholm on 13-15 December 2013 and will be followed by another round of Balticlab Project Development Programme from February to May 2014 with a smaller selected group from the Balticlab 2.0 Networking Weekend. Our goal is to make the Balticlab Network grow and develop year by year. Hence we will be opening the call up to more countries this year: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden, with the call targeted only to Baltic Sea talent who have not previously partaken in Balticlab.
We are looking for dynamic and engaged artists, entrepreneurs, creative industry and regional cooperation professionals between 23-33 years from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia or Sweden to join us. You should have a desire to drive creativity and innovation in the region through building a network and strengthening links between participating countries and be fluent in English.
See the full call for applications here.
