TULIP Peer2Peer Learning Ltd. delivers the CLOCK learning and professional development programmes. Tulip was set up in March 2016 by Denise Stanley-Chard, a non-formal education and social inclusion advocate and Manoj Ambasna, the CEO of Collage Arts, a cultural learning charity furthering social inclusion for over 30 years.
TULIP benefits from a knowledge base built from over 30 years of facilitation, action research and collaboration with employers, freelance practitioners and service providers from 15 countries. This activity has taken place within a series of EU-funded programmes (including Euro-Aspire, Aspire2Create, the European Cultural Learning Network, Break-in the Desk and Amico) spanning the last ten years, facilitated by Dr Denise Stanley-Chard on behalf of Collage Arts. These EU-funded programmes provided the initial opportunities to identify shared core competencies for cultural learning and developing and supporting creative businesses across Europe. From this emerged the CLOCK programmes.
