Young Leaders
European Museum Leadership Programme
Kerschensteiner Kolleg, Deutsches Museum in Munich
Tuesday, November 24th to Friday November 27th

Call for Applications
Society is changing rapidly which not only has implications on the public role of museums but also in the way we experience and see museums as part of our cultural framework. Museums have to adapt to stay relevant and need exceptional leaders who can share their commitment and inspire staff as well as stakeholders and drive forward necessary change.
In a series of sessions this programme will introduce young European museums professionals to the complex concept of self-, team- and institutional leadership helping them to explore their own competencies and leadership skills through self- reflection and group activities. International guest speakers and the leadership programme team will use the sessions to also discuss with participants the role of museums in society and use best practice models and challenging case studies as learning tools.

Who is it for?
This training programme is for young museums and cultural professionals who have either recently been appointed director (or head of a department) of a museum or a cultural institution or who are aspiring to become leaders in their institutions/sector.
Applicants should be under the age of 36 unless they have started their career late.

 3.5 days programme in Munich
