Brokering Intercultural Exchange Winter School (Germany) > Open call

The call for the Brokering Intercultural Exchange Winter School is open. It will take place  between 27-29 November, 2019 in Berlin.

The Winter School for selected Master and Ph.D. students in arts and cultural management will raise new insights regarding the relationship of the profession of arts and cultural management to the wider socio-political issues of cultural rights, particularly cultural inequality, inclusion and exclusion within the context of globalisation and migration.

They will specifically focus on participatory arts projects and our responsibility as arts and cultural managers within transitioning societies. They will strive to identify the blind spots and fault lines in our terminology and in our methodologies of participation.

The programme will explore such questions as, how can we get out of the dilemma of power structures when we operate within them? How can we implement the aspect of social impact right from the start? The programme, that is taught by renowned researchers and practitioners alike, will be a mixture of different formats (e.g. lectures, workshops, case clinics) that will not only allow for new practice and theory based insights and intensive discussions, but also for group work on specific tasks. Excursions to selected arts institutions in Berlin (e.g. the Barenboim-Said Academy) will also be included in the programme.

The organisers are also happy to announce that the Würth Foundation will offer one scholarship for a student from Africa to cover the travel expenses.

Deadline: 16 August 2019
