European Museum Leadership Programme 2016 | Germany

European Museum Leadership Programme 2016

The 2016 edition of the European Museum Leadership Programme, a training programme for young museum professionals, will be held in Munich, Germany, between 17 and 20 October 2016. The event is organised by KulturAgenda – Institute for Museums, Cultural Enterprises and Audiences.

The main aim of this introductory training programme is to broaden the way we think about leading an institution and to explore leadership potential in all its aspects, with the notion that we have to share responsibilities to be able to best co-create robust and flexible cultural organisations that meet the needs of a changing society.

Additional objectives are as follows:

  • Explore one’s own leadership competencies and skills as a means of developing a personalised professional learning agenda
  • Strengthen leadership and management skills
  • Exchange experiences and lessons learned
  • Develop new ways of thinking and provide a direction for the future
  • Facilitate networking and stimulate conversations in a peer-group setting
  • Establish an international network of young cultural leaders

In a series of sessions the European Museum Leadership Programme 2016 will introduce young European museum professionals to the complex concept of self-, team- and institutional leadership, helping them to explore their own competencies and leadership skills through self-reflection, discussions and group activities. International guest speakers and the leadership programme team will present best practice models and case studies. During the sessions participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the challenges in their own organisations.

Programme contents include an introduction to leadership and museum management; leadership styles and values; leadership competencies and tools; self-assessment exercises; team-building exercises; and mindfulness-based stress reduction.

The training programme is designed for young museum and cultural professionals who have either recently been appointed to a management post (director or head of a department) of a museum or a cultural institution or who are aspiring to become leaders in their institutions. Applicants should be under the age of 45.

First held in Slovenia in 2014, this year will see the second edition of the course at the Kerschensteiner Kolleg in Munich (Deutsches Museum).

Registration for the course is open until 14 May 2016.
