UNESCO - EU Transcultura Programme launches its Second Call for Applications for young Caribbean creative professionals

Havana, Cuba
01 - No Poverty
08 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
17 - Partnerships for the Goals

The ”Transcultura” Programme: Integrating Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union through Culture and Creativity launches the Second Call for Applications to the Transcultura Scholarship Scheme, in partnership with the University of West Indies Open Campus (UWIOC). It is a fully funded scheme supporting young artists and cultural professionals developing a career related to culture and creativity. Candidates will have the opportunity to enroll in short capacity-building online and blended courses on Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) offered by the Transcultura Regional Cultural Training Hub. 

This Call for Applications - round 2 offers free access to blended courses conducted by the UWIOC, for young Caribbeans within the cultural and creative sector enabling them to manage and develop their business ideas and projects. The blended courses are part of the Transcultura Course Catalogue:

•    Small Business Management
•    Effective management and Leadership 
•    Effective Business Communication 
•    Grant Proposal Writing 
•    Financial Monitoring and Evaluation
•    Project Management
•    Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation 
•    Finance for Non-Finance Manager
•    Sales and Marketing Management
•    Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management
•    Brand Management 

The Transcultura training opportunities are designed in both face-to-face and online formats, primarily in physical centres in Havana, but also through partner institutions like the University of the West Indies and it’s Open Campus. However, given the need to address and adapt the capacity-building component of the Programme, there are currently implemented exclusively in an online and blended format.

With this initiative, “Transcultura” aims to deepen cultural cooperation in the Caribbean and strengthen people-to-people cooperation by empowering young women and men as agents for sustainable development through capacity building in the cultural and creative industries, seeking to boost entrepreneurship and innovation, foster cooperation in the arts and culture sector, and create exchanges and networks to enhance complementarity and knowledge sharing.

“Transcultura” is a four-year Programme, funded by the European Union and implemented by the UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean.
