Online Cultural Planning Courses and Workshops

The University of British Columbia (UBC) Centre for Cultural Planning and Development launches a new series of online professional development workshops to take place in autumn of 2014. A legacy of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development is an international centre dedicated to the creation and strengthening of a global community of professionals advancing cultural development as a vital component of successful communities and sustainable growth.

The new series of three-week online professional development workshops are taught by international leaders in their fields and designed to meet the education and training needs of administrators, designers, consultants, planners and economic and community development professionals. Workshops cover a wide range of topics from the fields of cultural policy and planning; arts and culture; heritage and natural heritage; landscapes, parks and gardens, and cultural diversity and human rights. Each workshop meets online for two hours, once a week for three weeks, combines lectures and small group discussions, and is led by an international expert. There is also an online discussion forum to share information, knowledge and resources and continue the conversation with a small, informed group of international practitioners.

Workshops can be taken individually, or applied towards the online UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning.
