Applications for Global Cultural Relations Programme 2023 are open
The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP), the Cultural Relations Platform’s flagship training programme, is a unique opportunity that brings together practitioners from around the world to create meaningful connections and discuss cross-cultural collaborations. For its upcoming edition, there is a shift in focus: the Cultural Relations Platform opens the programme also to participants working in the field of climate change and environmental issues. The past editions were tailored only for cultural and creative professionals. In this edition, the idea is to broaden interdisciplinary cross-cultural collaboration by bringing two professional fields together.
This year the GCRP will take place in Madrid, Spain from 10 – 13 October 2023.
Before applying, listen to our colleague Dicle Gülşahin on how she has benefited from the programme.
The Cultural Relations Platform is looking for 40 professionals and entrepreneurs working in the cultural and creative sectors or in climate change and environmental issues. Applicants should be aged 25-39, with at least three years’ experience in international/cross-cultural collaboration, working for a public, private or civil society organisation, or as a freelancer. Participants will need to be able to commit to the programme throughout its duration from 10-13 October 2023 and allow time for travel to and from Madrid.
Focus disciplines of the applicants from the cultural and creative sector include but are not limited to architecture, audiovisual & cinema, books & publishing, cultural heritage, cultural management, design, media, music, performing arts, and visual arts. Sub-fields for professionals working on climate change and environmental issues include but are not limited to circular economy, climate & health, climate adaptation, climate charities, campaigns & activist groups, climate finance, climate heritage, climate justice, climate law & policy, climate mitigation, environmental engineering, geography (physical, human, environmental), indigenous groups & stewards of community-owned heritage, loss and damage, and sustainable food systems.
