Cultural Leadership Academy: online networking study tour to Thuringia

Sector: Culture and creative industries
Type: Programme
Location: Online
Deadline: Finished
Organiser: House of Europe: Goethe-Institut Ukraine

21-24 September hop on a digital study tour to one of the states of Germany — Thuringia. 

You will meet managers and policymakers carrying out great cultural projects in small cities and with little resources. Find out about the instruments helping them, study the structure and procedures of local cultural institutions, and get personal advice. Though it is an online tour, you will have the feeling of walking into the Department of Culture in a German country and visiting the off-stage of a local theatre.

Carefully study the application guidelines, join the online study tour, and add Czech cultural managers to your contact list. 

What do I get?
  • Lectures and workshops with 16 cultural managers from Germany: minister of culture, officers of independent projects, educational initiatives, local authorities, theatres, and funds from small cities all over Thuringia
  • A stipend of EUR 200 to spend on anything for your professional development: from courses to books
  • Translation of lectures, workshops, and meetings into Ukrainian
