The Paideia Project Incubator is a program for activists and entrepreneurs for Jewish culture who want to develop new projects in the educational, cultural, communal and institutional fields. The Incubator offers professional and experienced faculty and an intensive, effective studying program including lectures, workshops, peer-groups, courses in Jewish Textual Studies, individual counseling, and meetings with foundation representatives – all aimed at promoting, guiding and advancing participants projects.
The 2012 Paideia Project-Incubator will take place between August 2 – 10, 2012 in Stockholm.
The Paideia Project-Incubator fosters social innovation in Jewish Europe, as the only pan-European program of its kind. According to a 2010 survey, the PI has fostered more projects for Jewish Europe than any other program.
The program brings together social innovators from 12-15 different European countries in a highly intensive program, both intellectually and practically.
Participants are invited from a variety of different areas: communal life, the arts, environmentalism, journalism, museums, education, social care, intercultural life, theatre and religious life. They represent established institutions as well as new grass-roots initiatives.
The program consists of workshops, seminars, networking, tutoring, peer review and interaction with funding professionals. Staff, who are involved locally from Paideia in Stockholm and internationally from Europe, Israel and the US, are all experts in their respective fields. Both content and methods are based on academic research, evaluation of past programs and best practices from the field.
Applications will be accepted until May 5, 2012.
