From 5-9 November in Tokyo, the 2018 ENCATC International Study Tour is designed as an intensive learning programme for professionals who are academics, researchers, cultural operators, creators, decision makers, and artists coming from Europe and around the globe. This is a unique opportunity to learn, from inside, the cultural management and cultural policy in Japan. The 5-day programme includes the ENCATC Academy on Cultural Policy & Cultural Diplomacy and Study Visits.

The International Study Tour will kick off with the ENCATC Academy on Cultural Policy & Cultural Diplomacy from 5-6 November at The Europa House in Tokyo.

The ENCATC Academy is a special learning experience different from other offers currently available. Combining expertise from the field, higher education, and policy ensures ENCATC provides comprehensive and in-depth knowledge.

After the Academy, the International Study Tour programme will continue with three days of Study Visits. The itinerary will provide an exciting insider experience into Tokyo’s vibrant and fast-paced arts and cultural scene.
