UK suppliers are needed to design and facilitate an online mentoring scheme focused on sustainability best practices in the creative and cultural sectors.

Invitation to Tender Cultura Circular

Cultura Circular is a programme in Mexico, Brazil and Peru that focuses on collaborations and sustainability within the festival ecosystem. As part of the programme there will be an online mentoring scheme which will provide partcipants with knowledge and experience of sustainability best practices in the creative and cultural sectors.

Invitation to Tender

We invite proposals from UK suppliers with a solid experience in developing and delivering international online training, to design and facilitate the methodology and content for a multi-country programme.

Mentoring Scheme

The programme includes an online mentoring scheme focused on sustainable management competencies and capacity-building training for festival practitioners.

The UK supplier will design the international online mentoring scheme combining

  • mentoring,
  • networking, and
  • other capacity-building activities such as conferences and panels. 

Participants will be provided with support, guidance, and capacity building to develop transformational behaviour change, alongside conversations on climate action across cultural projects.


A final report will be created, compiling insights from the three countries with:

  • information gathered during the programme,
  • a monitoring and evaluation plan,
  • recommendations for future cultural sustainable work, and
  • festival deliverable outcome.

Networking & Collaborations

As part of the programme, UK festival practitioners will develop collaborations between Mexico, Brazil and Perú. Networking sessions will be held between the three countries’ festivals beneficiaries and UL festival practictioners.
