Third OECD Summer Academy on Cultural and Creative Industries and Local Development
The Summer Academy provides training for national and international policy makers and practitioners active in the promotion of and support to creative cultural sectors at the local, regional, national and international level, as well as cultural and creative entrepreneurs. At the end of the course participants will acquire a deeper understanding of the sector, its needs and dynamics and develop expertise in putting in place effective and integrated strategies and policy frameworks to uncap the full potential of CCIs as drivers for local economic growth, job creation and inclusion.
The 2020 edition of the OECD Summer Academy will examine how the creativity of artists and CCIs’ entrepreneurs, cross-overs with other sectors and the use of new technologies could spur innovation in process, products and services in various fields such as health and well-being, social cohesion, environment protection, urban renewal, education and skills. The new forms of governance required to deliver such innovation will also be part of the discussion.
Applications will open mid-February until March 2020. Applicants will have to provide:
- Personal and professional information.
- Motivations for participating in the Summer Academy.
- A case study (project, programme or initiative, which is currently being implemented or has concluded within the last 5 years and is directly related to the candidate’s professional experience).
- CV in PDF format.
The selection process will be finalised by 17 April 2020. Participation will be confirmed once the registration fee of 150 Euros will be received by the organisers. This has to be paid no later than 1 May 2020. Accommodation and lodging during the event are covered by the organisers. Participants are responsible for arranging and paying for their own transportation to and from Trento. Transport from Trento to the different venues outside the city centre will be provided by the organisers.
