A UK-based Grant for Romanian Cultural Managers

(for the Romanian version, scroll down) Gabriela Tudor Foundation from Bucharest, in partnership with the Ratiu Foundation from the United Kingdom, is launching the call for applications for the ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant in Cultural Management for the year 2011. The Grant, with the value of GBP 2,500, is presented annually. It consists in a stay of four weeks in the United Kingdom. The funds ensured by the grant cover the cost of travel Bucharest-London-Bucharest, local transport in the UK, accommodation during the duration of the grant, per diem, as well as a budget for tickets for shows, films, entry fees to museums and galleries. The aim of the ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant is to keep alive the memory of one of the few visionary cultural managers in Romania. Gabriela Tudor – who passed away, alas too soon, in January 2009 – has significantly contributed to the development of the Romanian cultural scene through her initiatives and projects, and her direct support given to artists and cultural organisations. Launched in 2009, the goals of ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant are to offer opportunities for European-level professional development and at the same time to contribute to the development and motivating of emerging Romanian cultural managers. The winner of the first ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant in Cultural Management was Corina Bucea, manager al the Paintbrush Factory (Fabrica de pensule) of Cluj Napoca. Corina’s visit to the UK took place during June-July 2010. The next ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant will take place in the United Kingdom during June-July 2011. The deadline for the applications is 30 October 2010. In 2011, besides the four-week grant in the UK, with the value of GBP2,500, the Ratiu Foundation will also award five special grants consisting in a one-week professional visit to London. All grants will be awarded on the basis of the applications received, the selection being made by: Irina Cios (cultural manager and Curator of the International Centre for Contemporary Art, Bucharest), Petra Bischof (Advisor, The Swiss Cultural Programme), Ghislaine Boddington (Creative Director, body>data>space; mentor of the ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant winner), Corina Bucea (Gabriela Tudor grantee for 2010), Ramona Mitrica (Director, the Ratiu Foundation), Cosmin Manolescu (Executive Director of the Gabriela Tudor Foundation). The fields of activity which have priority for 2011 are contemporary arts management, the private cultural sector, and cultural policies. For more details and to obtain the application forms, please contact us at cosmin@gabrielatudor.ro, contact person Cosmin Manolescu, or access the pages www.gabrielatudor.ro and www.ratiufamilyfoundation.com . The ‘Gabriela Tudor’ Grant is offered by the Ratiu Foundation and Gabriela Tudor Foundation / United Experts, with the financial assistance of Swiss Cultural Programme in Romania.
