UNESCO / City University of London > Online Training Module on Creative Economy

UNESCO with the support of the Korean Government will organise an 8-week-long course online starting from September 2021.

Targeting early to mid-career professionals from governments and civil society organisations in the ASEAN region, the training was developed by the City University of London in collaboration with UNESCO. It will be led by distinguished academic experts in the field of creative economy whose expertise is internationally acknowledged, and who possess an in-depth understanding of UNESCO’s approach to the creative economy, Prof. Andy Pratt and Prof. Jenny Mbaye.

An important step to building and developing the creative economy is to have an informed and knowledgeable capacity in relevant agencies. Those working in government agencies and civil society with the creative economy are more effective if they appreciate the novel challenges for the creative economy, and know where to find advice and guidance on their solutions. This course offers an introduction and review of key issues facing both the creative economy, and those working in various capacities to support and enable it.

The course will include the study of various practical case studies and invite guest speakers, experts in the field from the ASEAN region, to engage with the participants on specific aspects of the modules.

This call for participation is open for early to mid-career professionals from ASEAN countries including policymakers, representatives of civil society organisations, professionals from the creative and cultural sector. A maximum of 30 participants will be selected.

Starting in September 2021, the training workshop will comprise 8 sessions at the pace of one session per week. All classes will be held online. There is not cost to take part.

Deadline: 7 June 2021
