The Global Cultural Relations Programme (GCRP), the Cultural Relations Platform’s flagship training programme, is a unique opportunity for people working in the cultural and creative sectors. Cultural professionals will have the opportunity to develop lifelong skills, increase their knowledge, build their international network and receive support to engage in international cultural relations. This year the GCRP will take place in Istanbul from 10 – 13 May 2022.

40 participants have been selected from over 2,000 applications to take part in our flagship training programme for cultural and creative professionals around the world. They span 40 nationalities and numerous sectors including performing arts, music, audio visual, cultural heritage and visual arts. 

During the four-day GCRP programme (10-13 May) they will network, share experiences and ideas, build their skills in international cultural relations and have the opportunity to develop a collaborative international cultural project.
