Atelier for Young Festival and Cultural Managers in Shanghai - China

A new and unique platform of international cultural exchange

In the framework of The China-EU High Level People to People Dialogue between the People’s Republic of China and the European Commission, The Festival Academy (an initiative of the European Festivals Association) launches a new programme, the ‘Atelier for Young Festival and Cultural Managers’ in China with the aim to deepen Asia-Europe relations through international cultural exchange. This programme is set up and developed by The Festival Academy and the Center for China Shanghai International Arts Festival and will take place from 17 - 23 October 2017 in Shanghai, China.

For 2017, this programme is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China and by the European Commission through the newly set up Cultural Diplomacy Platform.

The Atelier for Young Festival and Cultural Managers is a 7-day training programme addressing early career artistic directors or those who have the ambition to get involved into programming festivals or cultural venues. 44 participants have been selected for the Atelier during which they will discuss various aspects of festival and cultural management with up to ten experts from pioneering festivals and outstanding art centres and institutes from all over the world.
