The ARJ ACADEMY is a one-week training and discourse format organized by the ARTS RIGHTS JUSTICE program at the University of Hildesheim (Germany). The ARJ ACADEMY invites 30 young professionals to join a group of international experts in the field for a program of workshops, discussions, teamwork, presentations and individual consultancy. All participants in the ARJ ACADEMY will be practitioners in cultural policy-related work, arts or cultural management practice, free expression advocacy, human rights defense or related areas.
We are committed to bringing together participants from as wide a range of world regions as possible to create a peer-to-peer learning ambiance based on dialogue, learning and exchange.
In 2017 und 2018, the first two editions of the ARJ ACADEMY received twice around 150 applications from about 50 countries of all world regions and finally hosted twice 30 selected participants.
The next generation of ARJ Academy is planned. The covid-pandemic and funding difficulties continuously challenge this aim but we do our very best to as soon as possible offer a next edition. Let´s stay in touch!
