Creative Climate Leadership training course (Koper-Slovenia)

The five-day intensive course (8-14 October 2017) will enable artists and cultural professionals to explore the cultural dimensions of climate change, and take action with impact, creativity and resilience.

The week will:

  • Explore the role of culture and creativity in responding to climate change and environmental challenges;

  • Bring together a range of expert guest speakers to share case studies, research, approaches and practical solutions for environmental sustainability in the cultural sector;

  • Enable each participant to develop their leadership and ideas;

  • Prepare participants to apply their learning and new skills when they return home, and support ongoing learning and exchange through an alumni network.

The course is aimed at artists and cultural professionals and we welcome applications from all creative disciplines and art forms. We will also consider applicants from organisations that work directly with the cultural sector, such as networks, associations, funding bodies and policymakers.

Cost: The course costs €750. This fee includes tuition, accommodation and food. Participants are expected to pay for their own travel.

Financial support: There are a limited number of free places and travel grants available for freelance (self-employed) applicants. Applicants should indicate on the application form whether they would like to be considered for this support.

Deadline: 31 July 2017
