Culture Backstage > training program for young cultural entrepreneurs > Open call

Culture Backstage is an EU funded training program for young cultural entrepreneurs who wish to develop and implement projects on a European scale. It is developed by the European Creative Network for Culture, under the leadership of Creature.
