Deadline: 30 June 2019 (CLOSED)

On 16 May 2019, ENCATC launched its first-ever call for nominations for its Fellowship Award!

The ENCATC Fellowship is a special gratitude biannual award and is being proposed in response to network’s twenty-fifth anniversary. ENCATC established the Fellowship Award in order to give public recognition and reward an individual, group of people, or an institution that has demonstrated a significant (and consistent) contribution to the field of cultural management and/or cultural policy over a longer period of time. It is also an instrument for ENCATC to continue playing its role as one of the most engaged actors in our society.

The Fellowship Award is in line with ENCATC’s mission, its multidisciplinary approach, values (sustainability, resilience, engagement, tolerance and dialogue, interaction and participation, and lifelong learning) and principles (inclusion, promotion of values and ethics in education and research, European and international networking and cooperation, and cross pollination).

The goal of the ENCATC Fellowship Award is to stimulate and recognise outstanding achievement in developing and maintaining an innovative yet consistent approach and commitment to positive change and to value remarkable and visionary leadership, creativity, and results in education, research, policy, and advocacy in the cultural management and/or cultural policy fields.

The Fellowship Award has a European scope, and the Award ceremony is held on a biannual basis.

The 2019 ENCATC Fellowship Award laureate will be announced on 2 September. The Award will be presented at a formal ceremony to be held on 2 October during the Congress. Then on 4 October, the 2019 ENCATC Fellowship Award laureate will give a keynote from 16:00- 17:00
