UBC Centre for Cultural Planning and Development
Online Course: Festivals, Events and Eventful Communities

Jan 30 - Apr 2, 2017. 100% Online.

The creation and promotion of events such as festivals, exhibitions, shows, fairs and celebrations are important components of cultural practice throughout the world. At local, regional, national and international levels, events make important contributions to tourism, social life and identity as well as to economic and cultural development.

By the end of this course, understand different models and approaches to events; the fundamental processes and building blocks for creating, managing and evaluating events; and the different perspectives of policy makers and event managers. You are able to apply the lessons learned to specific events in your local community, region or country and to develop policies that support eventfulness.

INSTRUCTOR: Robert Palmer is the former Director of Democratic Governance, Culture and Diversity at the Council of Europe. In this role, he managed programmes and projects concerned with cultural policy and action, cultural heritage, diversity, intercultural dialogue, democratic governance and conflict resolution across 47 countries. Now, he is an independent expert consultant working on projects connected with cultural policy, cultural regeneration of cities, and the development of the creative economy across several continents. 

This course can be taken individually for professional development, or applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning - an international professional learning program delivered 100% online.
