Call for Applications
Society is changing rapidly which not only has implications for the public role of museums and cultural institutions but also affects the way we experience and see them as part of our cultural framework. More than ever, leadership competencies are necessary to run and lead teams that make museums relevant to society and drive forward necessary change.
In a series of sessions this programme will introduce young European museums and cultural heritage professionals to the complex concept of self-, team- and institutional leadership helping them to explore their own competencies and leadership skills through self-reflection, discussions and group activities. International guest speakers and the leadership programme team will present best practice models and case studies. During the sessions participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the challenges in their own organisations.
Who is it for?
This training programme is for young museums and cultural professionals who have either recently been appointed to a management post (director or head of a department) of a museum or a cultural institution or who are aspiring to become leaders in their institutions.

We are happy to accept also applications from outside of Europe.
