The Cultural Relations Platform (CRP) is looking for a team of experts with strong experience and expertise in conceptualising, designing, and implementing digital training programmes to develop our flagship training programme: the Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP).
The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP)
The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP) is the flagship training programme of the CRP and takes a renewed approach from its predecessor, the Global Cultural Leadership Programme (2016 – 2019). The programme is designed for global cultural operators and practitioners and aims to develop the participants’ skills, support them to engage in global cultural relations through tailored peer-to-peer learning, cross-cultural collaboration and global networking. The key objectives of the GCRP are:
- Knowledge sharing
- Community building
For the 2021 edition of the GCRP, in line with the topical discussions surrounding the heavily-impacted cultural and creative sectors around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the overarching key theme of the GCRP is: ‘Shaping the New Normal of International Cultural Relations’.
The 2021 edition of the GCRP will be held in a digital capacity over several days. Participants will be selected through an application procedure, open globally.
Call for team of experts
This open call for a team of experts offers an opportunity for professionals experienced in developing training programmes in the cultural field at global level to assist the CRP in designing and implementing the 2021 edition of the GCRP. The team of 2 – max 3 – experts recruited by the Platform will be involved in conceptualising a tailor-made virtual training programme for a group of up to 100 participants – cultural operators and practitioners from around the world – in a multi-day programme focusing on knowledge sharing, peer-to-peer learning and workshops, and cross-cultural collaboration.
Experts can be based internationally as this short-term assignment will be conducted virtually. Possibilities of traveling to Brussels can be envisaged depending on the situation and the meetings requirements.
The tentative launch of the 2021 edition of the GCRP is late October/early November. The programme developed with the support of the team of experts should be ready in the second half of July at the latest.
If you are interested in applying and feel your team has the right experience and expertise for this assignment, please send us your CVs (individual CV is required per expert) in the attached format in one email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 May 2021 (Friday).
Interested applicants must apply as a team of 2-3 experts; individual applications will not be considered.
Selected teams of experts will be invited to share a short concept paper proposal on how they envision structuring the GCRP in an online format to the CRP team for consideration. Further shortlisted teams of experts will be invited for interviews with the CRP team.
Final selection of the team of experts will be confirmed in the second half of June.
