Looking for a partner at a Grundtvig photograpy project
Our photo project will content the subject ‘water’ with many different themes.
We ‘re looking for adult amateur photographers in different art schools in Europe. We will work by mail, skype, websites, etc. but also by visiting each other. The adult learners we’re looking for, are open for learning, organizing, research and enthusiast photographers with extra time for working on this project. They are connected to an Art education institute for non professionals. The photography groups will all start in August 2012 till 2013 the project and finish with photo exhibition a year later in 2014.
We ‘re already connected for the preparation of this project with partners in Belgium, Netherlands, Estland and Iceland and planned our first meeting on 26 January -29 January 2012 in Brugge (Be).
We’re looking for 1 or 2 others partners in Europe. (We ‘re thinking about countries in the neighbourhood: IRL, GB, N, S, DK, D)
For more information see below.
The Grundtvig project needs at least three educational institutes from three different European countries and focuses on adult education, so called ‘Life Long Learning’.
There is one coordinating school, which would be FotohuisBrugge. The coordinator works out the common agreements with the partners, to deliver them to he Grundtvig agencies in the participating countries. Europe subsidizes through these agencies the project, so each school gets their own project funds.
A Grundtvig project takes two years. Deadline to send in the application is February 10th 2012. The real start of the project (after the approval of the European Community) should be around June 2012. The actual work would then be in the academic year 2012-2013. Between September 2013 and June 2014 the result will be shown in a travelling exhibition, a publication and on a website.
Grundtvig, learning partnership
Any information about Grundtvig, you can find on the general European website and on the website of the local agencies :
We give you the main lines of the idea behind Grundtvig, the whole text you can find on :

Partnerships are (often small-scale) projects for practical cooperation between organisations from at least 3 countries. One institution / organisation per Partnership is the “coordinator”; the others are “partners”. The Partnership application is jointly prepared by all the institutions participating, but each institution receives its grant from its own National Agency. Partnership grants are awarded for a 2-year duration.
The activities of Partnerships consist of local activities in a partner’s own organisation (learning activities, fieldwork, research, etc) and mobility activities to visit partner institutions abroad (project meetings, study visits, staff exchanges, class exchanges etc.).
The rules for Partnership projects are broadly the same, no matter under which programme they are implemented (Comenius, Grundtvig, Leonardo da Vinci), though the grants awarded may vary to some extent from one country or programme to another.
Each participating institution receives a project grant in the form of a lump sum as a contribution towards all its project costs: travel and subsistence during mobility periods and costs linked to local project activities. Grants are defined on the basis of a minimum number of “mobilities” that the participating institution intends to carry out during the agreement period. One “mobility” corresponds to one trip abroad carried out by one person in the framework of the Partnership. The Grant Agreement defines the types of eligible mobility activities. At Final Report stage, beneficiaries are not requested to submit proofs of expenditure, but they will need to provide evidence that the activities foreseen in their application have been carried out in a full and satisfactory manner.
Table 4: Comenius, Leonardo da Vinci and Grundtvig – maximum lump sum amounts for Partnerships
The table below shows the maximum grant amounts for each Partnership type, based on the number of planned mobilities. The actual amounts awarded by National Agencies vary from country to country and may in some cases be significantly lower than the maximum amounts indicated below. Applicants are strongly advised to consult the website of the relevant National Agency in their country, in order to as certain the actual amounts which they would be likely to receive if their application is successful.
