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 programme 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, the ARJ ACADEMY received 185 applications from 50 countries of all world regions and hosted 30 selected participants from August 24 until 31, 2017 followed by the ARJ Forum in Berlin. The second edition of the ARJ ACADEMY & FORUM will take place from September 1- September 8, 2018.
