Salzburg, Austria, October 14 TO 19, 2017

Salzburg Global Seminar invites young cultural innovators based in Cape Town to apply for the 4th annual Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators. The Forum will take place at Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, Austria from October 14 to 19, 2017. The program is designed to help young cultural innovators (YCIs) develop the dynamic vision, entrepreneurial skills, and global networks needed to allow them, their organizations, their causes and their communities to thrive in new ways. The artistic disciplines represented by the young innovators range from the visual and performing arts, literature, and cultural heritage, to foods, fashion, architecture, and design. The program offers an opportunity for several YCIs from Cape Town to participate in a week-long, intensive seminar in Salzburg, connect with fifty young cultural innovators from around the world, and become part of the “Cape Town YCI Hub.” The five-day program in Salzburg combines theory and practice, with keynote presentations focusing on “big picture” issues facing the cultural sector and with skills-building sessions on entrepreneurial thinking, communicating mission and message, leadership, organizational development, and team building. Selected participants from Cape Town will receive a full scholarship to participate in the YCI program, including the session fee, room and board, and travel costs.
