What we do
Members of the regional group meet regularly to discuss common interests and challenges in daily regional tango culture work. Topics include:
- Exchange of information (current regulations, funding opportunities, dates of planned events, …)
- Promotion of the awareness of Tango Argentino in Hamburg in general (e.g. joint marketing)
- Lobbying, maintenance of contacts with politics and authorities
- Networking internally (building community, promoting collegial interaction, …)
- External networking with other (dance) cultural areas
In addition to the regional group proTango Hamburg, there is also a general email distribution list of the Tangoforum Hamburg, which also includes tango artists who are not yet members of proTango e.V.. The regional group is also still very interested in the exchange with these tango creators. We invite all tango artists to become members of proTango e.V. and to get involved in our common work.
Who can participate
All members of the association proTango e.V. from the Hamburg region can actively participate. As soon as you have become a member of proTango, contact the coordination office to be included in the internal mailing list through which you will be informed about all meetings and actions.
The supporting members of the association proTango e.V. from the Hamburg region are also invited and receive all minutes.
Committed fellow campaigners
For some actions we depend on the competence of committed fellow campaigners who are not members of proTango e.V. (lawyers, communication professionals, GEMA specialists, etc.). You have special skills that can support tango culture work in the Hamburg region or in Germany and want to help us? We are very happy about that. Please contact the coordination office.
