Cultural Planning Workshops

The Centre for Cultural Planning and Development at the University of British Columbia provides online university-level training and education programmes focused on building the organizational and leadership capacities necessary to advance cultural development as a vital component of success and sustainability. Starting in November 2017, the Centre for Cultural Planning and Development offers a set of online professional development workshops on the following topics:

  • Cultural Entrepreneurship (begins November 23) Cultural entrepreneurs are encouraging economic growth and international visibility in communities around the world. This workshop focuses on the importance of cultural entrepreneurship for strategic management and policy-making using a combination of theory and international case studies. Cultural planners, managers, policy-makers, and budding cultural entrepreneurs will all find this content valuable.
  • Cultural Planning - An International Perspective (begins November 28) Cultural planning plays a fundamental role in solutions to global issues such as sustainability, democratic practices, intercultural dialogue, and social cohesion. This workshop will explore the work of cultural policy-makers and planners from around the world as they weave together local community heritage and international perspective.
  • Cultural Practices and Strategies in the Digital Realm (begins November 15) Fluency in the language and tools of digital media is an invaluable resource to the modern cultural planner. This workshop will introduce how cultural projects are currently marketed and disseminated in the digital realm, giving participants the know-how they need to launch their own virtual initiatives.

All workshops combine lecture and small group discussion, meeting online for two hours once a week, for three weeks. The cost per workshop is 325 CAD.
