Creative Resilience lecture series

Creative professionals are faced with an uncertain future. They are also uniquely equipped to deal with that, if they are only consciously aware of the explicit and transferable skills that lie implicitly within the creative process. This course lays out collaboration, leadership and strategy as main components of Creative Resilience and enables participants to apropriate and utilise - with personal and professional resilience in mind.

Creative Europe workshop series

Leadership in the cultural sector - a series of creative workshops building capacities in the creative industries. The collaboration of partners works with groups and individual organisations to develop internally as they raise their international profile, and vice versa.
