Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators

Report from the inaugural Salzburg Global YCI Forum published

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.

Inspired by this imaginative and vibrant field of progress, Salzburg Global Seminar has launched a ten-year program for Young Cultural Innovators (YCIs) from around the world, with a view to strengthening the cultural sector worldwide and to expanding the possibilities for innovation and social change through the power and creativity of the arts.

Salzburg Global Seminar’s Session 538 in October 2014 brought together 45 young cultural innovators aged between 25-35 years from across the world. 

As well as providing ideas, entrepreneurial skills, and networks required to support their organizations, causes and communities, this session is part of a major commitment by Salzburg Global to seed self-sustaining communities of YCIs in “culture hubs” around the world. Supported by local Fellows within the Salzburg Global Network, activities in these hubs will aim not only to foster a more vibrant and dynamic cultural sector, but also to enable cultural innovation to drive positive social and economic development agendas in the communities and institutions involved in the program.
