Albert Meijer, Creative Europe - Culture
Working at the Creative Europe Desk NL Culture, I see a lot of people who would love to start international collaborations, but have to work through various procedures and paperwork first. I enjoy helping them with that. Many ideas are essentially quite good right from the start, and just need to be translated into a European application.
In my previous job at the international performing arts network IETM, I used to work on Creative Europe applications and reports myself. One thing I would like to say to all applicants is that the effort is worth it in the end, and can lead to wonderful projects!
Outside my work, I am a freelance writer and occasionally perform on stage myself as part of the cabaret duo Het Verdriet van Drenthe.
