The Global Cultural Relations Programme

The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) is our flagship training programme and aims to connect cultural professionals from all over the globe.

The programme is designed for cultural and creative practitioners with an interest and experience in international collaboration. It develops participants’ skills and supports them to engage in international cultural relations through tailored peer-to-peer learning, cross-cultural collaboration and global networking. The key objectives of the GCRP are knowledge sharing and community building.

    Our alumni

    Since its launch in 2016, the Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) has built a community of 220 professionals from six continents and diverse cultural and creative sectors.

    We keep in touch with this community through our website and social media. This includes regularly sharing interesting activities and opportunities and inviting alumni to participate in our live and online events (seminars, roundtables, webinars, etc.). They also have the opportunity to shape future editions of the GCRP. We closely follow the activities and engagements of our alumni at the local, national and international level and regularly communicate about their achievements.
