The CUBES project, co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme, aims to empower all societal sectors to own and administer their heritage and cultural resources in a sustainable way, thus leading to both cultural democracy and sustainability. To this purpose, the project developed a training programme, Cultural Administration & Sustainability Boosters Curriculum, that will be offered on an inclusive, interactive and user-friendly digital platform.
The curriculum is designed by all project partners based on the best practices, funding tools, local challenges, training needs and results identified during the development of the Review Paper on Parameters Mapping. More specifically, the programme is addressed to public bodies and authorities, NGOs and foundations at regional and national level working in the cultural sector for the promotion and governance of cultural resources.
The curriculum will be available in 6 languages (English, Portuguese, Romanian, Greek, Lithuanian, Bosnian) and consists of 4 Subjects:
- Subject 1: Project Management (Module 1: Project Management Introduction, Module 2: Project Management Methodology & Toolsets, Module 3: Cultural Project Life cycle)
- Subject 2: Community Involvement & Networking (Module 1: Introduction to Cultural Competence, Module 2: Networking in Cultural Settings, Module 3: Culture as a pillar for Sustainable Development – 2030 Agenda and Cultural Administration)
- Subject 3: Marketing Cultural Work (Module 1: Introduction to Marketing and Marketing Planning, Module 2: Communications Planning and the use of Digital Tools, Module 3: Strategic Marketing – Branding)
- Subject 4: Fundraising for culture (Module 1: Basics to Fundraising, Module 2: Strategic Planning for Fundraising, Grant Proposal Writing)
After the release of the curriculum via the CUBES interactive e-platform, AER member regions and other interested parties can undertake the online learning programme on cultural management and sustainability and obtain a certification. Once the learners have successfully completed the programme, they will receive training to act as mentors in local communities, taking up the responsibility of informing, guiding and mentoring other community members in the field of cultural management and sustainability.
As result, participants will be empowered in their know-how regarding the sustainable administration of tangible and intangible cultural resources and will have the opportunity to network and interact with expert partners in the field.
The curriculum will be published in the coming months via the CUBES interactive e-platform. Stay tuned!
