We are launching educational programmes in culture


European Capital of Culture requires projects and events at international level. In order to be able to organise them in Trenčín, we are launching Runway - training programmes for a variety of people.


From professionals in culture, to young people who want to create events and festivals, to those who want to be ambassadors of the European Capital of Culture in their communities. Runway will be our common runway towards the European Capital of Culture 2026.


One of the programmes is Runway | Culture Professionals. It is a semester-long training course aimed at increasing competences in the field of cultural management. It will help to bring strategic planning, interdisciplinarity, sustainability and an international context to an organisation or project. It also focuses on working with audiences and teamwork. The course is designed for cultural managers from public and private organisations and institutions who want to take their projects or organisations to an international level. It is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced attendants. It is primarily aimed at people from Trenčín and the Trenčín region.


Similar training has so far also taken place in Košice under the Escalator project, which was a turning point in the functioning of many cultural organisations in Košice. A nice example is also the international project Tandem.

In June, we organized a meeting with people working in the field of culture in Trenčín reagion, to whom we presented the starting points of the course and gathered information about their needs and expectations from education. They often talked about working with the audience, the need for financial support, interconnection on a regional level as well as networking within Europe. Thanks to participants from Trenčín and the Trenčín region we received important feedback on the completion of the course according to the needs of the Trenčín region.


Registration will open in August 2022. If you want to be the first to know about registration, click here to sign up.
