On 6-7 September 2012 British Council Russia is running the Cultural Management Workshop at Cultural Center ZIL which will be the 2nd in the series of workshops which are part of the British Council Cultural Leadership programme that aims at enabling cultural practitioners and leaders develop their skills, networks and partnerships to successfully operate in the cultural sector in the rapidly changing context.
Over the recent years, it has become apparent that many emerging cultural leaders need support to develop practical cultural management competencies in addition to leadership skills. For more information about the 1st Cultural Management Workshop, please, go here, as well as watch the video and the photo report.
Cultural Management Workshop at ZIL will focus on Strategic Management, Planning and Evaluation of cultural and creative projects that will equip participants with the knowledge, skills and understanding to effectively plan, design, manage and evaluate arts projects and organisations.
The approach to the training will be experiential. It will encourage participants to apply the principles they are learning to their own organisations and projects. Work in pairs and small groups will be encouraged. The training will prepare the participants by encouraging them to be confident in talking about their skills and experience.

||ZIL Cultural Centre is an experimental project which aims at moulding the largest community centre in Moscow into a modern cultural centre of a metropolis that is filled in with life and creativity. From the autumn 2012 on, ZIL cultural centre will work in 5 trends: dance, creative development, educational programs and
lectures, performance arts, renovating library and opening a public centre. All the programs will be assessed by an expert panel of each trend and supported by the most relevant professionals. The main target of ZIL Cultural Centre is to prove that Moscow citizens need an access to contemporary culture; to build a space where professionals meet each other, share experience and skills, create brand new projects. ZIL Cultural Centre will become an integral part of a cultural map of Moscow, and a development model for other cultural centres to be renovated in future.
