Cultural education

For an application in this sector please consider that cultural educators within the meaning of this call are responsible for the pedagogic part of an exhibition, concert, theatre etc. and in charge for the communication between the audience and the artists or the art.

Cultural education can take place in a variety of settings, including arts education in formal and non formal educational institutions and educational programmes in cultural institutions.

In the field of cultural education, the stay is primarily designed to foster exchanges and networking and not the realisation of a project.
