For leaders in the cultural sector
Leadership as a concept has not yet been fully incorporated in the
cultural sector, although there’s a substantial need for leadership: the
environment in which cultural organizations and professionals operate
is growing ever more complex. Cultural organizations and professionals
need to be active both locally and internationally and often collaborate
with a variety of stakeholders: all types of audience(s), all levels of
government (European, federal, Flemish, local, community), an
ever-growing number of suppliers with many comings and goings, and
partners from varying social domains. Uncertainty and unpredictability
are key ingredients in day-to-day practice.
Cultural organizations are often small-scale and overwhelmed by
practical problems. This program actively engages your work context into
the learning process. We thus simultaneously address the learning
capacity of cultural institutions and organizations.
The backbone of LinC consists of 8 labs. We call these labs because it is not only about gaining knowledge, but also about sharing and creating knowledge. These labs are meetings that take place over 12 months. In addition, there are 3 learning tracks that are explained in the next section.
