Meet our GCRP participants 2023

We’re very happy to announce the changemakers and innovators selected to take part in our Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) 2023!

39 participants have been selected from over 4.200 applications to take part in the first cross-sectoral edition of our flagship training programme – welcoming not only cultural professionals, but also participants working on climate change and environmental issues.

They span 39 nationalities and numerous sectors. From the side of climate change and environment, we have participants working in fields including climate policy, circular economy, sustainable food systems, environmental whistleblowing, climate mitigation and adaptation, climate justice and stewards of community-owned heritage and indigenous groups. Our cultural and creative sector participants work in fields such as visual arts, performing arts, music, audiovisual & cinema; they include socially engaged arts managers, filmmakers and photographers, festival directors, policy officers and ‘artivists’.

During the four-day GCRP programme (10-13 October) in Madrid, Spain, they will network, share experiences and ideas, and have the opportunity to engage with professionals from another sector who are willing to contribute to a more interdisciplinary and sustainable world.
