MEETING WITH MAUD CATTIAUX

Sara de Vylder and Amy Fee from the Sphere met with Maud Cattiaux, who is the officer in Brussels that is the EU administration contact person for the Sphere, as a project.

It was informative and Maude asked several questions about the Sphere and showed curiosity, as it is an unusual EU-project and construction. The fact that the main partner is a small organization, compared to other projects, was also discussed.
We came away with several things:

  • The Agency is aware of the Covid19 impact on projects and activities, and that changes need to be made from the original application.

  • There are two criteria for changes in the project and its activities. Large ones need a lot of formal administration, smaller can be approved by the officer.

  • To check with Maude often if questions occur, better to inform too much than too little. Especially as we have to adapt to Ciovid19 continuously and quickly.

  • Our officer is the officer for several performing arts EU-projects, also some circus, and has a great interest in the field. She is happy to be invited to labbs, meetings or performances during the project.
