Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators 18 Oct - 23 Oct, 2014
IMAGINATIONSalzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators18 Oct - 23 Oct, 2014

    Session Summary

    Young innovators in the culture and arts sector are providing some of the most imaginative new impulses for social improvement and sustainable economic development around the world today. They change the way we see and interact with each other. Young artists, creative entrepreneurs and cultural leaders demonstrate the creative vision, talent, and energy that our societies so desperately need to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

    The Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators (YCI) is a ten-year project launched by Salzburg Global Seminar to engage fifty of the world's most dynamic young cultural innovators every year. The Forum helps young cultural innovators between the ages of 25 - 35 to develop the vision, entrepreneurial skills, and global networks needed to advance their organizations, their causes and their communities. It straddles the visual and performing arts, literature, and cultural heritage, as well as food, fashion, architecture, and design.

    The YCI Forum represents a major commitment by Salzburg Global Seminar to connect cultural entrepreneurs in specifically targeted communities and cities around the world, focusing initially on ten hub centers. Supported by our local Fellows within the Salzburg Global Network, activities in these country hubs foster a more vibrant and dynamic cultural sector, and enable cultural innovation to drive positive social and economic development agendas in the communities and institutions involved in the program.

    Session 538 "Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators" took place from October 18 - 23, 2014.
