The aim of ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Day is to propose an interactive and intensive learning offer in order to increase youth, students, and adult education professionals’ knowledge about the policies and programmes in the field of culture and education.
From 04-09 May 2019 in Brussels, the students and their accompanying professors from ENCATC member institutions and from the Association Européenne des Conservatoires, Académies de Musique et Musikhochschulen (AEC) will take part in an exchange of experiences and good practices in European project development and project management. Being in the heart of Europe, the activity will be an excellent opportunity to meet and discuss with representatives from European institutions as well as world-renowned cultural institutions and organisations based in Brussels.
Holding the event in Brussels provides for some additional enriching opportunities! 4 May is European Institutions Open Day 2019 and is a unique opportunity for participants to discover how the European institutions affect their lives. Step inside the institutions’ buildings and take part in special activities, such as public debates and guided tours. On 5 May, the Brussels Capital Region celebrates the Iris Day each year at the beginning of May. The Iris Festival program includes free concerts and lots of events. Both of these days are optional, but attendance is strongly recommended for participants coming to the ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Days.
2019 provides a special framework for the 3rd edition of the ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Days. By organising this activity in Brussels just before the European election will be the opportunity to sensitize the young generation about values of Europe and the importance of Europe in their life as citizens and future cultural professionals. During the programme, ENCATC member, BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, will be having participants of the ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Days be involved as participants and leaders in “Next generation please“, a project of BOZAR, Centre for Fine Arts and a member of ENCATC.
The methodology of the programme is mixed. The topics addressed will be complemented by interventions and presentations of projects, best practice, and experiences from professionals and experts working in culture and policy. To give participants experience in the field, the programme will also include study visits to meet with cultural operators and learn first-hand about European project development and project management.
At the end of the programme, the ENCATC Capacity Building Days and Youth in Action Day will deliver for participants:
- increased knowledge on European programmes and policies impacting the cultural and creative sector
- a better understanding of advocacy work at European level
- knowledge of the necessary skills and capacities to develop a successful project application
