The Summer Academy organised by the OECD LEED Centre of Trento for Local Development in collaboration with tsm - Trentino School of Management, the European Creative Business Network (ECBN) and Centro Servizi Cultura e Volontariato (CSCV), with the support of the Department of Italian culture (Youth Policies Unit) – Autonomous Province of Bolzano (Italy) and the Department for Cultural Activities of the Autonomous Province of Trento (Italy) will be held from 11 to 15 June 2018 in Trento & Bolzano, Italy.
The Summer Academy provides training for policy makers and representatives of cultural and creative industries (CCIs). 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 programme targets national and international policy-makers and practitioners active in the promotion and support to creative cultural sectors at the local, regional, national and international level, as well as cultural and creative entrepreneurs.
Participants should be strongly committed to the development of the cultural and creative sector. They should be freelancers or currently work in private companies and organisations (foundations, co-operatives, NGOs, grassroots community organisations, non-profit entities, etc.) or public institutions (national, regional, provincial or local governments, development agencies, research centres, international organizations) active in the field of CCI development.
