The labour market in Europe's cultural sector is highly competitive. A strong foundation of knowledge, practical skills, and professional contacts is key for boosting employability of young people in Europe's cultural sector. Furthermore, fostering engagement of young people, preparing them for success in our field, and offering them opportunities to shine early in their careers is how we can ensure Europe will have a strong and sustainable cultural sector in the future. 

The three-day programming will have a special focus on cultural heritage and is one of the events taking place during the European Year of Cultural Heritage. It will be an interactive and intensive training experience including seminars, self-directed work, and on-site study visits to meet with top cultural managers and influencers. Reserved for a small group of 30 students from Higher Education and training institutions, this will be an ideal environment for intensive learning, lively discussions, stimulating group work and networking. Participants will come away with increased knowledge about European programmes and policies impacting the cultural and creative sector and cultural heritage, innovative cultural management practices, European advocacy work in culture, and European project development and project management.
