  We are pleased announce to launch of Roundtable Projects - an open platform aimed at developing a collaborative network of interests and opportunities which can then materialise into cultural projects for presentation. We wish to listen to and bring together members of the Romanian community in the UK in order to stimulate the forming of creative partnerships for inter-disciplinary projects. We are also open to applications coming from non-Romanians, as long as a Romanian connection exists. Developed by The Romanian Cultural Centre in London (RCC), as an extension of our CULTURE POWER series, we propose a transparent and creative platform open to all kinds of discussions and opportunities. Roundtable Projects will develop a collaboration between the RCC and our audiences by welcoming anyone who wishes to work creatively and participate in our activities. Call for applications: We invite you to submit proposals for open talks, exhibitions, seminars, or events you would like organise in partnership with RCC. You may either work alone or in groups (where at least one member is Romanian). Please send us your applications containing a draft outline in no more than 500 words of your project idea, budget and time schedule. (Click here to download the application form) Selection process: RCC will select a maximum of 10 proposals and invite the applicants for a roundtable discussion. Each applicant will have 5 minutes to pitch their project to the participants and a panel of RCC members. After the presentations, a vote will be held to select the two best proposals. Everyone can then vote for the best two projects, excepting their own. Once the two finalists are chosen, individual discussions will follow with RCC concerning any resources needed to implement the projects. What we offer: - An initial budget of 250 - A beautiful exhibition/ event space located in central London - Working space and logistics If the projects require additional resources, RCC and the project leaders will work together to secure funding.

Please email the complete application by 1:00 PM on 14th May 2012 to The Romanian Cultural Centre in London at: Applicants will be notified of their application results on the 21st May 2012. The first Roundtable meeting will take place on Wednesday, 23rd May 2012; please keep that afternoon free if you intend to apply.
