Wordrap

Wordrap with Leonie Hodkevitch, scientific coordinator of the certificate Course "Cultural Management"

Cultural Management is an exciting field of work because... ...it enables people to shape their careers so that they love their work, pursue great artistic and social goals, succeed in unique projects and engage in creating a better world.

New goals can best be reached through... 
...a change of perspective.

Intercultural Communication means to me... 
...absorbing the multiple benefits of different cultures, working in an exciting atmosphere, and, if we think big, secure peace.

The following quote represents Cultural Management... 
..."Begin anywhere" (John Updike).
It has encouraged many participants, colleagues and myself to go for what you believe in. And to make this John Updike aphorism more structured, in our course, we offer a step-by-step program for achieving the participants’ project and career Goals.

Wordrap with Peter Schweitzer, scientific director of the certificate course "Cultural Management"

As a social anthropologist the engagement with Cultural Management is exciting because …… it brings one of the central notions of the discipline - namely "culture" - into focus and explores the practicalities of "doing culture".

A valuable lesson from my (field) research was …
... that, for many minority groups around the world, the notion of culture is closely tied to their identities.

My favorite part of the certificate course "Cultural Management" is …
… to enable other people to explore and enjoy their creativity and make it part of their career paths.

I would recommend the certificate course "Cultural Management" to …
… people who are ready to open a new chapter in their lives, one in which culture and creativity will be central; and/or to people who are already doing exactly that and want to bring it to the next level.

The following quote defines the term "Culture" …
… "If we are to preserve culture we must continue to create it." (Johan Huizinga)
