IMS’ Twinning Programme was launched in 2005 in the context of the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme. The programme is an instrument to establish a professional dialogue and strengthen cultural understanding between professional media institutions and individuals in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and in Denmark.
Twinning enables colleagues from the media to share their knowledge and experience from practising the same profession in different geographical contexts.
It is a means to promote skills improvement, generate professional inspiration, support the generation of new ideas for media content, etc. with collaboration as a core element.
How Twinning works
Twinning is based upon exchange visits where Arab participants from selected media institutions and Danish media partners visit each other to work on jointly defined media productions or to share knowledge and methods in a specific area e.g. TV, radio, print media, online media or photography. The aim is thus also to create professional contacts and relationships across borders between colleagues with mutual interests.
IMS funds expenses, accommodation, allowances and other agreed costs related to a Twinning project.
The Twinning programme is open to all media professionals in the MENA region and Denmark agreeing to the overall aim of the programme.
