The “Kultura Nova” foundation is hosting the first program of this year’s edition of “EU diploma in cultural project management”, an educational program taking place from 30 August to 5 September, 2020, in Zagreb, Rijeka, and Cres. In Croatia, the program was organized by the “Kultura nova” foundation in partnership with the Association “Marcel Hicter” from Belgium who is the manager of the program, and assisted by Pogon – Centre for Independent Culture in Zagreb, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka, European Capital of Culture – Rijeka 2020, and the University of Rijeka, with the support from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia. One part of the program took place in Moise Palace in Cres on 2 September, 2020.


The “EU diploma” is a pan-European educational program arising from the will to foster cultural diversity and transregional and transnational cultural exchanges. Two major goals of the program are to allow cultural managers a better integration of collaborative projects aimed at connecting identity, culture and economy in a European perspective, and to include more EU projects into regional cultural development plans. The program includes theoretical and practical parts, as well as visits to cultural organizations in Zagreb and Rijeka. The part of the program taking place in Zagreb is open to public.
