Europska diploma za menadžment kulturnih projekata omogućuje trening i stjecanje iskustva na polju kulturne raznolikosti i inter-regionalne razmjene kako bi kultura zauzela snažnije mjesto u Europi.
Prijave za sudjelovanje primaju se do 15. siječanj 2008.
Kroz sadržaj i metodologiju, ovaj paneuropski program specifičan je na način da ne cilja samo na poboljšavanje vještina kulturnih administratora na polju kulturnog menadžmenta, već pomaže i razvijanju razumijevanja tih područja u promjenjivoj Europi. Glavni ciljevi su osvijestiti izazove unutar područja djelovanja te utjecati na pristupe i alate potrebne za kooperativnu i kreativnu kulturnu radnu snagu Europe; omogućiti kulturnim menadžerima da bolje integriraju svoje kooperativne projekte koji povezuju identitet, kulturu i ekonomiju u europsku perspektivu; uključivanje europskih projekata u politiku regionalnog kulturnog razvoja.
Da bi se ostvarili ti ciljevi, europska diploma fokusira se na:
– osnaživanje znanja, vještina i teorijskih referenci na području kulturne politike i menadžmenta
– stvaranje okvira otvorenog drugim kulturnim pitanjima, načinima mišljenja / djelovanja koji tvore izvor obostranog obogaćenja
– razvijanje mreže europskih kulturnih menadžera kao i stavova i vještina povezanih za umrežavanje; izgradnju snažnih odnosa među sudionicima iz različitih regija Europe i drugih kontinenata kako bi se ostvarile suradnje
– promoviranje transnacionalne suradnje i mobilnosti stručnjaka, kako bi se Europa približila svojim građanima, te se povećala njihova uloga u stvaranju difuzije kulturnih projekata.
Program je namijenjen mladim, no iskusnim europskim kulturnim menadžerima iz javnih i privatnih organizacija. Kandidati moraju imati barem tri godine profesionalnog iskustva u razvijanju i širenju umjetničkih / kulturnih projekata.
Sudionici različitog porijekla i iz različitih kulturnih disciplina, moraju imati dobro znanje o europskim, nacionalnim i regionalnim kulturnim institucijama i politikama, te posjedovati vještine u menadžmentu kulturnih projekata. Selekcija se temelji na postojećim kvalifikacijama i relevantnom profesionalnom iskustvu, kao i na kvaliteti priloženih projekata.
Program se izvodi na engleskom i francuskom jeziku, a osiguran je simultani prijevod tijekom plenarne sesije. Kandidati moraju tečno poznavati jedan od radnih jezika te prosječno poznavati drugi.
Program uključuje tri elementa: teoriju, praksu i evaluaciju, koji su organizirani kroz 5 faza:dvije rezidencijalne faze u trajanju od dva tjedna u zemlji partneru Diplome, a između njih je faza terenskog rada u zemlji iz koje kandidat dolazi, te jedan do dva tjedna u drugoj europskoj regiji plus tjedan evaluacijske faze.

Cultural Project Management
2008 – 2009
EUROPEAN DIPLOMA IN CULTURAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT 2008/2009
The European Diploma in Cultural Project Management is a training and learning experience fostering cultural diversity and interregional exchanges as a way of giving culture a stronger place within Europe.
Through its content and methodology, this pan-European programme is specific in the way that it does not only aim at improving the skills of cultural administrators in the field of cultural management, but also at helping participants to develop understanding of these fields in a changing Europe.
Its main aims are to make participants aware of challenges within their field of action and influence and to develop approaches and tools needed for a co-operative and creative cultural workforce in Europe.
I – OBJECTIVES OF THE EUROPEAN DIPLOMA
Since the establishment of the European Diploma in 1989, as a follow-up of the Council of Europe's programme "Culture and Regions", 430 professionals from 41 European and world countries, active in the field of cultural project management, took part to this training programme which is characterised by its innovative methodological approach and European open-mindedness.
The main objective of the programme is twofold :
_ to enable cultural managers, having already good management capacities, to better integrate their co-operation projects – which link identity, culture and economy – in a European perspective.
_ to insert European projects in regional cultural development policies.
TO ACHIEVE THIS OBJECTIVE, THE EUROPEAN DIPLOMA FOCUSES ON:
• Strengthening knowledge, skills and theoretical references in the field of cultural policies and cultural management.
• Forging a framework open to other cultural concerns, ways of thinking/doing and sensitivities which constitute a source of mutual enrichment.
• Developing a network of European cultural managers, as well as attitudes and skills related to networking. Building strong relations among participants from various regions of Europe and other continents in order to facilitate subsequent co-operation – multiplying the impact and the added value of the training.
• Promoting transnational co-operation and professional mobility bringing Europe closer to its citizens and enhancing their role in the creation and diffusion of cultural projects.
WHO IS THE TRAINING FOR?
The programme is designed for young, already experienced and project-oriented European cultural managers from public and private organizations. Applicants must have at least three years of professional experience in developing and spreading artistic / cultural projects.
Participants, with different origins and coming from various cultural disciplines, should have a good knowledge of European, national and regional cultural institutions and policies and have developed skills in the management of cultural projects.
The selection is based on existing qualifications and relevant professional experience, as well as on the quality of the submitted project.
The training is conducted in English and French and simultaneous translation is provided during the plenary sessions. Applicants must therefore be fluent in one of the working languages of the European Diploma and have a fairly good knowledge of the other.

III. CONTENT, ORGANIZATION AND SCHEDULE
The training includes three elements – theory, practice and evaluation – which are organized in five stages: two residential phases that last two weeks in the partner countries of the Diploma, interspersed by a phase of field work in the participant's home country and a one to two-weeks period spent in another European region, plus one week evaluation phase.
A – The residential phases (two times two weeks)
The residential phases have four main objectives:
1. Providing theoretical and practical references as well as information on European cultural policies and practices;
2. Giving participants from different regions the opportunity to benefit from the contact with other participants and experts in various cultural fields;
3. Creating conditions in which the participants’ own environments and experiences can be critically reviewed;
4. Fostering exchanges of information at various levels and cultural operators networking's skills.
The issues which are addressed during these two weeks periods concern:
– Europe and Culture (key concepts of culture and cultural trends, European cultural institutions and their policies, etc.);
– Territorial development (regional / local / urban strategies);
– Strategic planning and operational management of cultural projects (project management, fund raising etc.);
– Cultural co-operation and cultural networking.
The methodology of these residential phases includes theoretical contributions and practical inputs by experts, round-table discussions, debates, working groups, as well as visits of cultural institutions in the host regions.
Work on the participants' projects – and "confrontation" with other participants' projects – are part of an ongoing process which is monitored throughout the training
B – The practical phase
The practical training takes place over two periods of 5 months and consists of two parts :
1. Field experimentation : in the framework of his/her activities, each participant is asked to put into practice or further develop his/her project in home region, using the knowledge acquired and the analytical tools and methods developed during the residential phases.
2. Comparative study visit : each participant does a one week case study in another region of Europe. The aim is to enable participants to temporarily distance themselves from the problems met in their regions; to compare how different practices are applied in the same sector; and to enhance the European dimension of their own projects.
The practical organization and costs of this phase are borne by the trainees.
C – Drafting of a report :
The project's report will integrate theoretical and methodological inputs as well as practical elements (it is meant to be a tool designed to communicate to others the results and proposed actions). The report will include a study of the problems encountered while implementing the project; a reappraisal of the project; an analysis of the actions taken and the results obtained as well as a first global evaluation.
The document should demonstrate the participant's capacity to put into practice the acquired knowledge and skills with his own creativity.
D – The evaluation phase: Presentation of the projects and the final Seminar
During this phase, the trainee should demonstrate his/her :
– ability to relate his project to recent cultural challenges in Europe;
– skills to co-ordinate actions which connect different "transnational" partners and demonstrate both an awareness of his own cultural realities and an open attitude towards those of others;
– capacity to build his actions on both concepts and personnal analysis;
– ability to evaluate his action
– active participation to the seminar
The evaluation phase will include two elements:
– the presentation of the final report
– the organisation of a seminar around challenges facing by cultural operators today and tomorrow.
From the 4th till the 16th of May 2008 First residential phase of two weeks in Finland, Aaland, Turku and Helsinki
From May till October 2008 Back to job and work on the project in home country + comparative study in another region
Two weeks in October 2008 Second residential phase of two weeks in Cyprus
