The Global Cultural Leadership Programme (GCLP) is a learning programme designed to develop and reinforce knowledge, competencies and professional networks of cultural practitioners who are emerging on the international scene. Through its framework, content, and methodology, which strongly builds on peer-to-peer learning, reflection and collaborative network building, the GCLP enables young leading managers of cultural organizations to gain fresh insights and develop new approaches to international cultural collaboration practices. The programme offers a set of applied learning modules, tools, and manuals for practice-based learning, giving the participants opportunities to build meaningful collaborations at the global level and within the EU.

This third edition of the GCLP will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 27 October to 2 November 2018.
