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 EU.

For the first edition of the programme, the Cultural Diplomacy Platform is looking specifically for applications from outstanding cultural managers from the ten Strategic Partners of the EU (three participants from each of these ten countries: Brazil, Canada, China, Japan, India, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and the USA), as well as from European Union Member States (ten EU participants from different EU counties). 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.

This first Global Cultural Leadership Programme will take place in Valletta, Malta from October 16–21.

Candidates who wish to be considered for participation in the first edition of the Global Cultural Leadership Programme shall submit an up-to-date CV (not more than two A4 pages and using the application form), expression of interest (not more than 500 words) and a project description (not more than 1.000 words).
