European Commission has launched a Global Cultural Leadership Programme with an aim to support mutual cultural engagement with countries and citizens around the world. This unique training programme for developing leadership in international cultural collaboration has been designed as part of a new global Cultural Diplomacy Platform.
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 applicant opportunities to build meaningful collaborations at the global level and within the EU.
The Cultural Diplomacy Platform will offer 40 participants from countries all over the world and Europe to join a comprehensive learning- and networking programme. The participants to the Global Cultural Leadership Programme will come from different fields of relevant cultural practice in their respective countries and represent sectors that are specifically interested in reaching out with their work globally.
