my hidden agenda
My hidden agenda

I came up with the idea for thisproject for primarily3 reasons:

  • AKKS needs to strengthenourpolitical arguments showing the politicianswhyamateur arts is important
  • I find the subjectinformallearning in arts veryinteresting but veryunderexposed and difficult to put intowordswhenaskedabout it
  • The nordicnetwork in amateurculture has becomequiteweaksince the nordiccultural program wasrevised. In my opinion it needs to berebuilt.
the project outline
The projectoutline
  • The purpose of this project is to establish a Nordic/Baltic network of amateur artists/organisations, that will function as a platform for exhange of experience and knowledge of the informal learning that takes place in amateur arts.
  • During a series of 4-5 meetings/workshops in 2013-14 organisations from the field of amateur arts in the Nordic/Baltic region will share, gather and develop knowledge and experience of the informal learning taking place in amateur culture
  • The outcome of information and knowledge from the meetings will form as the basis of the network and hopefully lead to the establishing of a website and the dissemination of information to our organisations and the public.

financial part of a thematic network
Financial part of a thematicnetwork

The financial part of a networkproject is somewhatcomplicated. The grant is based on a budget of the estimatedactualcostsfor all organisations. The maximum grant is 50.000 Euro:

  • The NORDPLUS grantsonlycover up to 75% of the approvedcosts in a budget = 25% must beself or co-financed
  • In kind contributionscanhoweverbeincluded in the selffinancing
  • The costscoveredare: Travel and board, administration (5%), printedmaterials, establishing a web site, meetings, seminars, workhours put in to the project and translation

BUT NOT: wages, costs for particpantsoutside the projectgroup, project overhead, equipment, activitiesog peopleoutsidethe Nordic/Balticcountries

decisions decisions decisions
Decisions, decisions, decisions…

In the nextfewhourswe have to design and agree on the outline of the overall project:

  • We must ensurewemean the same thingwhenwe speak aboutinformallearning in amateur arts
  • We must find out whatwillbe the themes of the national meetings/workshops
  • We must find out howwewillwork in between meetings
  • We must find out howwewillspread the results of ourproject
  • We must find out howwewillcommunicate
  • We must agree on the form of the national meetings

I hope the nextfewhourswillclarify…but pleasekeep the NORDPLUS thematicnetworkprogram in mind – as it is the financiallimitation.
