Summer Academy OECD

The course is aimed at policymakers and practitioners of the cultural sector, from public institutions and private organisations.  Each year, the Summer Academy tackles a different theme, and invites participants from around the world to share their experiences and learn from international experts in the field. This year’s goal is to provide tools for answering the needs emerging in the development of the cultural industry. The main focus will be reconnecting society through culture: uniting people, places and communities in a polarised world.

The course will be held entirely in English. To apply, fill in the form on by 5 May 2024, providing a motivation and a case study. The number of participants is limited to 24.
