Final event of the SHIFT cooperation project

On 1 December 2021 from 14:00 - 16:30 CET

Due to the critical sanitary situation related to COVID-19 in Brussels, the event had to be turned into an online event instead of an in-person gathering in Brussels.
We would like to invite you to join us at our online SHIFT Final Presentation. The presentation will last 2,5 hours and will be held on the online meeting tool Zoom.

It is with deep regret that the Board of the European Music Council has decided to cancel our SHIFT Final Event in-person in Brussels on 1 December. We were very excited to finally be able to meet you in-person again and share the results with all our partners of our two-years cooperation project SHIFT but have decided to change it into an online format for security reasons.

Four main topics

Carolyn Auclair and Ruth Jakobi from the European Music Council, project coordinator, will share a quick introduction on why the SHIFT partners - 9 European and International cultural networks - recognised three years ago the need to join forces to work on the global agenda of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have developed tools and guidance to implement changes in regards to the SDGs in their organisations.
will be presented by Fairooz Tamimi from Trans Europe Halles
We have aimed at giving guidance on ways of leading an organisation in the cultural sector and leading change associated to following the UN SDGs and would like to share with you some of the tools, resources and tips we have gathered.
will be presented by Maria Hansen from ELIA

We have joined forces to kick-start an environmental shift in all aspects of society: economic, educational, scientific, cultural, and many more. Claiming that role means embedding environmental sustainability into the way we work and collaborate. This presentation will provide insights in what the SHIFT partners have looked into and what is currently being finalised.
will be presented by Ása Richardsdóttir from IETM & Marie Le Sourd from On the Move

The #MeToo movement, and other movements and campaigns, have increased the awareness and empowered employees around the globe to report sexual harassment and other inequalities in the workplace. With our key findings and report we want to contribute to a lasting impact of this wave of empowerment on professional and societal culture. Get support in creating safe working spaces with tools, solutions and ideas to fight gender-based related power abuses and harassment.
will be presented by Sophie Dowden from the European Choral Association

While the topic of inclusion in itself is not new, we realised that there are no general guidelines for cultural networks. The research, handbook and interviews presented will have a special focus on leaders of these networks and organisations, with the aim of training them and reinforcing their capacity to increase inclusion and accessibility in their organisations. We will try to guide you through this.
