The ENCATC “Academy on sustainable cultural management and policy” is instrumental to equip the members and the CM and CP community with new competences and skills to face common challenges and innovate.
For over 10 years, the co-creation and delivery of its academies in collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London, pioneers in cultural relations higher education, and local partners provides the track record that evidences a secure reputation and knowledge of the field. The Academy will be coordinated by the ENCATC office.
The ENCATC Academy will also provide a safe space for the meeting of different articulations of cultural relations organisations, networks and individuals to engage in specialised discussions enabling the development of mutual and useful learning for the sector. It will seek to break traditional divides in discussions and practice between, for example, foreign/national cultural relations institutes and arts organisations. ENCATC is well placed to be that hub, since as a membership organisation, it brings together a wide range of organisations from different corners of the world with expertise on the practice of arts management and cultural policy, areas at the core of the cultural relations sector.
The 2022 Edition of the Academy will address the climate change as a cross cutting issue in the context of external relations and the digital shift. Climate change is a global challenge that needs to be tackled with no more delay. Combining the most recent theory and practice, this first ENCATC Academy on sustainable cultural management aims to equip academics, practitioners and policy makers with the best methodologies and practices for embedding environmental sustainability across the operations and artistic programming of cultural heritage and performing arts organisations.
