SESSION

583

    Session Overview

    The Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators (YCI) is an annual series of Salzburg Global Seminar that brings together fifty of the world's most talented young innovators from the culture and arts sector at Schloss Leopoldskron to help them develop the dynamic vision, entrepreneurial skills, and global networks needed to allow them, their organizations, their causes and their communities to thrive in new ways.

    The artistic disciplines represented by the young innovators range from the visual and performing arts, literature, and cultural heritage, to foods, fashion, architecture, and design. The YCI Forum represents a major commitment by Salzburg Global Seminar to fostering creative innovation and entrepreneurship worldwide with the intention of building a more vibrant and resilient arts sector and of advancing sustainable economic development and positive social change agendas worldwide.

    Selection Criteria

    • 25-35 years of age;
    • Proficiency in English;
    • At least 2-3 years of professional experience in the cultural sector;
    • Creativity in approach to work, openness to innovation and risk-taking, action-orientation, and demonstrated entrepreneurial practice;
    • Interest in creating social change and strengthening the position of the arts and cultural institutions within communities, demonstrated through an example of one project led or in planning;
    • Proclivity to communicate (social media savvy, etc.) and cooperate with others across sectors;
    • Passion, enthusiasm, and leadership potential – with recommendations confirming these qualities and/or external recognition of  accomplishment in this area: prize, award, citation;
    • Desire to become an active member of a global network and willingness to commit time, energy, and resources to sustaining such a network, both at the global and hub level.

    Program Format

    Forum components include the one-week annual program in Salzburg combining theory and praxis, with capacity building sessions focusing on: effective communication, entrepreneurial thinking, organizational management and new business models, risk-taking and innovation, and comparative styles of leadership.

    Outstanding participants from previous years are invited back as facilitators/resource specialists at ensuing sessions to assure continuity, communication and exchange of best practice across the multi-year series.  The Forum assists the YCIs in creating “YCI hubs” on all continents to share the learning, foster a multiplier effect, and magnify the impact of the YCI network created in Salzburg at the community level.  The “YCI hubs” will convene mini-sessions, workshops and public events and become a local resource for emerging cultural innovators. 

    Program Objectives

    The goals of the YCI series are to:

     

    • Support a fragile and often under-resourced sector that is nevertheless a major driver of innovation, creativity, and change;
    • Create an innovative, world-class network of Young Cultural Innovators to drive and strengthen the arts sector worldwide over the next decade;
    • Build the capacity of a critical mass (500+) of networked young arts leaders committed to innovative leadership, entrepreneurial approaches, and exchange of best practices within and among “YCI hubs” worldwide;
    • Generate a multiplier effect on cultural organizations and networks around the world through the “YCI hubs” designed to share the learning from the Salzburg sessions and inspire innovation, collaboration, and peer mentoring at the local level;
    • Disseminate the Forum’s groundbreaking ideas to a broad community of stakeholders and build a creative network for continuing dialogue, collaboration and advocacy, through social media and catalyzed by the “YCI hubs.”

    Multi-Year Series

    CULTURE, ARTS & SOCIETY

    Salzburg Global Seminar’s long-running series on Culture, Arts and Society focuses on the transformative power of the arts within and across sectors, acilitates cultural exchange at multiple levels, and provides unique networking and capacitybuilding opportunities. Culture and the arts have had  a prominent place in Salzburg  Global Seminar’s programs since its beginnings as the Salzburg Seminar in American Studies in 1947. Today, through multi-year projects and strategic convenings, the Culture, Arts and Society series seeks to secure a more prominent role for the arts on policy agendas and to bring creative change-makers, influencers, and communities together to drive lasting change at scale. As part of our deep commitment to next-generation talent, we support the continuously evolving needs of the creative  sector as a major driver of sustainable economic development and social improvement, particularly through the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators
