Europe Day 2017 - Pakhuis de Zwijger - Amsterdam
'The Art of Trust'
12 December (13:00 - 18:00)

We would like to draw your attention to Europe Day 2017 'The Art of Trust'!
Europe Day 2017 is organised by Creative Europe Desk NL and Europe for Citizens Point NL, on 12 December in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. Main focus of the day is:

How to gain trust of potential investors and partners for your project?

Decrease in public funding, challenges of globalisation, opportunities of digitisation and the increasing empowerment of crowds are pushing the cultural, creative and civil society sectors more and more to explore new ways of committing partners and to seek for other approaches of financing. During Europe Day we will examine these trends, offering the floor to funders, advisors and practitioners.

Storytelling (Europe for Citizens)
In this session participants get an insight on how to present their project and to take it a step further. How to move and connect in conversation by using storypower? How to inspire and in the end win trust of your investor and partner? The workshop is led by Hélène Oostdijk (InsideStory), expert on organisational storytelling.
Catrien Spijkerman (Iron Curtain Project) will be there to present how it uses the art storytelling in practice.

Guarantee Facility (Creative Europe)
In the context of limited access to finance for the cultural and creative sectors, the Creative Europe programme earmarked €121 million to a financial mechanism acting as insurance to financial intermediaries (e.g. banks) offering financing to cultural and creative sector initiatives. The guarantee scheme is managed by the European Investment Fund. In this session we will discuss, with a panel of experts, how to build a relationship with financial stakeholders and how to convince them to get behind your project.
