The European Diploma in Cultural Project Management is a pan-European training programme arising from the will to foster cultural diversity as well as transregional and transnational cultural exchanges.
The Fondation Marcel Hicter is the organizer and manager of the course.
The objective is threefold:
Each year, around 25 professionals from 20 countries are taking part in the European Diploma. Since 1989, 500 cultural managers from 41 countries (from Europe mainly and the Middle East, Canada, etc) followed this course. The programme is supported by the Council of Europe.
Cultural managers from public and private organizations who are actively involved in the management of cultural and artistic projects in their region, with at least 3 years experience.
The training languages being English and French, applicants must be fluent in one of these two working languages and have a good passive knowledge of the other.
The European Diploma is organized so that the participants carry on with their professional activities. The programme lasts one year and is organized in 3 phases: 2 residential sessions, a comparative study and an evaluation + seminar phase.
Two sessions of a fortnight take place in two different countries each year. The next training session, will be organised in Zagreb (Croatia); ten days in May 2010, and in Italy in October 2010.
The themes, which will be discussed, are: Europe and culture; project management, cultural cooperation, operational management of cultural projects, fund raising etc.
Between the residential sessions and the evaluation phase, the trainees return to their jobs in their countries, and in parallel work on their own project. They also have to do a comparative study visit in another region of Europe.
This one-week phase includes the presentation of the participants projects and the organization of a thematic seminar. It will take place mid 2011.
