GCRP Alumni Reunion

Organised by GCRP


The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) Reunion is taking place in Brussels (Belgium) from 21 – 25 November 2022. The international cultural relations stars have aligned and the participants of the 2021 online edition are meeting their peers from the Istanbul 2022 edition.

Together, they are a group of 74 participants from 58 nationalities eager to exchange smiles, impact the world and collaborate with fellow professional working in cultural sectors from all over the globe.

In the 2021 online edition, 59 participants from 49 nationalities were selected from numerous sectors including performing arts, music, audio visual, cultural heritage and visual arts. The distance between the participants was shortened and the recipe for cultural diversity was maintained for the following edition. In 2022 nothing less than 38 participants from 38 nationalities were happy to gather in person, meeting face-to-face in Istanbul (Turkey). In both editions brilliant minds networked, shared experiences and ideas, buit their skills in international cultural relations and had the opportunity to develop collaborative international cultural projects.

The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) aims to connect cultural professionals from all over the globe. And not only. The main idea of GCRP is to develop participants’ skills and support them to engage in international cultural relations through tailored peer-to-peer learning, cross-cultural collaboration and global networking.
