Kulturagenda: Young Leaders 2017


European Museum Leadership Programme

Call for Applications


4 full days at the National Museum Slovenia, Ljubljana,

(Sunday evening November 26th to Thursday November 30th)

Our successful European leadership programme goes into its fourth year! We are very excited to be back in Slovenia where the National Museum of Slovenia will be hosting us at their Metelkova site.

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. During the sessions participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the challenges in their own organisations.

We will also have opportunities to discuss with young museum leaders in Slovenia what their particular challenges are and meet up with successful museum directors and cultural leaders.

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.

Applicants should have already some staff responsibility and should be under the age of 45 (exceptions apply).
