Culture Backstage: An International Training Programme for Future Cultural and Artistic Entrepreneurs
1 June 2018 - 30 June 2019
Culture Backstage is an EU funded training programme for young cultural entrepreneurs who wish to develop and implement projects on a European scale. Developed by the European Creative Network for Culture, under the leadership of Creature, a Paris-based School of Cultural Entrepreneurship, the programme will take place between 1 June 2018 and 30 June 2019. It is designed for young aspiring cultural and artistic entrepreneurs to acquire the theoretical and practical means to make their ideas come true. Participants will learn about culture, entrepreneurship, art, media, philosophy, marketing and more, while exploring major European cities and cultural hubs. Working across linguistic and cultural barriers, Culture Backstage will bring together cultural entrepreneurs, empowering them in a sufficiently strong environment, with a sufficiently unified track, so that a sense of community and common culture can emerge, fostering collaboration, exchange and synergies. Over a period of 13 months, selected participants in the Culture Backstage training programme will follow courses, participate in workshops and build connections while traveling to the following five institutions: Scuola Holden in Turin, Heimathafen Neukölln in Berlin, Public Art Lab in Berlin, Czulosc Arts Centre in Warsaw, Creature in Paris and On the Move in Brussels.
93% of the fees are covered by Erasmus+, including courses, transportation and accommodation. 30 entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs will be selected to participate in the programme, 5 from Belgium, 5 from France, 10 from Germany, 5 from Italy and 5 from Poland.
The application deadline is 15 April 2018.
