The Program runs over the course of a year, starting with a two-week residential workshop. The workshop is guided by a strong faculty of international and national scholars and professionals from various cultural disciplines, backed by decades of experience. Entrance to the program is based on proposals presented for jury selection. The course structure for the fellowship is as follows:
We welcome applications from practitioners working across a wide range of creative and cultural activity, as also from those who are working outside it who demonstrate knowledge, understanding and passion for culture. Artists and persons with unconventional careers and experiences are also invited to apply.
Each participant is required to apply with an ongoing project. The residential course is oriented to effective management and growth of arts organisations. The applicant’s proposal should highlight the needs of his/her organisation/project for building an efficient and sustainable arts organisation. The applicants are encouraged to describe the project in as much detail as possible to allow for an understanding of the scope of the project and skills they need to develop for its successful implementation.
