Are you a young cultural practitioner looking to develop and strengthen your cultural leadership skills? Then the Global Cultural Leadership Programme is designed just for you!
Through its framework, content and methodology, the Global Cultural Leadership Programme specifically aims to improve the skills of cultural managers, enhance collaborative peer-to-peer learning, network building and enable you to develop fresh insights into international cultural collaboration practices.
The programme offers a set of learning modules, tools and manuals for practice-based learning, giving you opportunities to build meaningful collaborations at the global level and within the European Union (EU).
The Global Cultural Leadership Programme is a component of the Cultural Diplomacy Platform, launched in March 2016 to support the European Commission with the implementation of a new strategy for international cultural relations. The platform aims to carry out activities in order to enhance the EU’s cultural engagement with countries and their citizens.
The BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, British Council, EUNIC Global, European Cultural Foundation and Institut Français have formed a consortium, led by the Goethe-Institut, to support the implementation of the Cultural Diplomacy Platform.
