Salzburg Global Forum call for aplications

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 young leaders (Fellows) who participate in the program have a minimum of 1-3 years’ professional experience in the cultural sector and are approximately 25-35 years old.

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.

Selected participants from Cape Town will receive a full scholarship to participate in the YCI program, including the session fee, room and board, and travel costs.

The forum will take place in Salzburg from October 14-19, 2017.
