Are you a young cultural manager/practitioner looking to develop and strengthen your cultural leadership skills? Are you excited to be part of a growing international network of young cultural professionals?

The third edition of the Global Cultural Leadership Programme (GCLP) is made for you!

The Global Cultural Leadership Programme (GCLP) is a learning programme designed to develop and reinforce knowledge, competences and professional networks of cultural practitioners who are emerging on the international scene. Through its framework, content and methodology, which strongly builds on peer-to-peer learning, reflection and collaborative network building, the GCLP enables young leading managers of cultural organisations to gain fresh insights and develop new approaches to international cultural collaboration practices. The programme offers a set of applied learning modules, tools and manuals for practice-based learning, giving the participants opportunities to build meaningful collaborations at the global level and within the EU. 

For the third edition of the GCLP, the Cultural Diplomacy Platform is looking specifically for applications from outstanding cultural managers from Brazil, Canada, China, Japan, India, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and the USA (3 participants from each of these 10 countries), as well as from the 28 Member States of the European Union (10 participants, each from a different EU country).

The participants to the GCLP 2018 will come from different fields of relevant cultural practice in their respective countries and represent sectors that are specifically interested in reaching out with their work globally.

This third edition of the GCLP will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 27 October to 2 November 2018 (arrivals October on 27 and departures on 2 November). Travel, accommodation and meals are covered by the Cultural Diplomacy Platform.

Candidates who wish to be considered for participation in the third edition of the Global Cultural Leadership Programme (GCLP) shall apply through the online application form

The deadline for applications is 14 June 2018, at 23:59 CET (Brussels) time.
