European Diploma in Cultural Project Management 2014-2015
The European Diploma in Cultural Project Management is a training and learning experience fostering cultural diversity and interregional exchanges as a way of giving culture a stronger place within Europe. Next year will be a very special one for the Diploma as it will be celebrating its 25th birthday! It will take place in Montenegro and Rhône-Alpes.
Through its content and methodology, this pan-European programme is specific in the way that it does not only aim at improving the skills of cultural managers in the field of cultural management, but also at helping participants to develop understanding of these fields in a changing Europe. Its main aims are to empower the participants and to develop capacities and tools needed for creative cultural cooperation in Europe and abroad. Since the establishment of the European Diploma in 1989, as a follow-up of the Council of Europe's programme "Culture and Regions", 550 professionals from 43 European and world countries, active in the field of cultural project management, took part to this training programme which is characterised by its innovative methodological approach and European open-mindedness. The main objective of the programme is twofold:
- to enable cultural managers, having already good management capacities, to better integrate their cooperation projects - which link identity, culture and economy - in a European perspective,
- to insert European projects in regional cultural development policies.
The programme is designed for project-oriented European cultural managers from public and private organizations. Applicants must have at least two years of professional experience in developing and spreading artistic/cultural projects.
