Open call: Culture for Development - workshops for young cultural managers from Eastern Partnership countries


The “Culture for local development” workshops (15-21 May) for young managers from  Eastern Partnership countries working in cultural sector are organized by Culture.pl and European Solidarity Centre (ECS) in collaboration with Solidarity Fund PL in Moldova. They are directed at culture activists from Georgia, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine. The aim of the workshops is to deepen knowledge and skills of the participants with regard to project management.

The workshops will equip the participants with tools that will allow them to initiate and carry out important and attractive socio-cultural events in their local communities. Not only will the workshops provide an ample opportunity to acquire new knowledge and experience, but also provide a platform for sharing own experiences with the colleagues from other countries. Consequently, the workshops will provide ground for discussion, initiating interinstitutional contacts and inspiring new cultural and social initiatives in the Eastern Partnership countries. During the workshops, the participants, assisted by experts, will design  local initiatives to be presented when the workshops conclude. At the end of the workshops, the participants will take part in the “Europe with a view to the future” forum, organized by the European Solidarity Centre.

The workshops will be held in Warsaw and Gdańsk.
