There are now over 220 organisations and projects listed on this database, from over 25 countries across Europe, including Georgia, Moldova and the Ukraine, and also from other countries – Australia and Brazil. Euclid is producing a directory of these listings, for distribution at the Adelaide Fringe festival in February/March 2017. This is the largest Fringe festival outside the UK, running for 24 days and nights during February and March, and featuring more than 4,000 artists from around Australia and the world, and over 900 events staged in pop-up venues in parks, warehouses, lane-ways and disused buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, art galleries and cafes. The programme includes the Honey Pot, a special programme of events and activities which provide opportunities for artists and cultural organisations to meet and to explore possible projects and collaborations. The Creative Partners directory will be disseminated through this programme. All Creative Partners listings will be included in this Directory and there will also be an opportunity for up to 20 organisations to add a more detailed listing, with background information and an image. The fee for this additional listing is €50 / £45 – or £15 to Connexus members. You can book your listing by selecting the option from the menu on the left. You will then be sent further information about what information you need to supply. The deadline for bookings is Wednesday 15 February 2017.
Creative Partners is a website which aims to address a key challenge that many arts and cultural organisations face in their attempts to work outside the UK (on trans-national projects or EU funding applications or touring their work) – and that challenge is the search for partners. You can use Creative Partners to search for partners or you can register and add one or more listings about their organisation or their project ideas. You can still add your listing to www.creative.partners. It is really easy to register and to add a listing, and you can add up to 5 images, a video clip and 2 attachments for each listing. Have a look at the website, and get yourself registered and listed! There is a Help/FAQs tab (see top menu on www.creative.partners) that will guide you through the process.
