Professional development programmes in Arts/Culture management

All of these programmes are structured in a way that allows professionals to carry on working and/or situates the learners in actual professional contexts. We consider this pathway to be the most valuable and certainly one of continuous professional development moments that are needed  in a socio-economic activity which changes before other industrial and policy fields manage to.

The Intensive Training programme on Cultural and Creative Industries Network Entrepeneurship and Innovation is offered at the National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts in Sofia.  The Intensive Training programme on Cultural and Creative Industries Network Entrepreneurship and Innovation introduced the key features conditioning the CCI as network-based entrepreneurial initiatives. The latest studies on the demand side and the diversity of cultural output in Europe and Bulgaria set the context for discussion.  Special focus is placed on artistic offer in public space (festivals and digital marketing) and on those products and services that are tied to advanced/new technology processes or that are structured in a recurring cycle of production (subscription based demand and multiannual co-productions). Learners are encouraged to develop their own analytical skills based on case-studies of inter-sectorial competition for quality and external affiliations with partners sharing the same audiences, public or users in the context of 21 century CCI.  Key themes of the course are explored with the professional input of quests –cultural entrepreneurs from Bulgaria successful in producing knowledge intensive high quality products for the Bulgaria and for the global markets.
