Project Management Workshop for Culture Professionals
Time & Location
About The Event
ACRI Mumbai is back with its next event | A Project Management Workshop for Culture Professionals. As professionals from the cultural sector, a lot of the training that we receive today regarding project management comes from “on-the-job learning” with no prior knowledge by way of a specialised course or degree. This workshop is geared towards mid-career culture professionals who wish to learn the art of project management.
Ankit Kush, Co-Founder and CEO of Cobodh, and Ruchira Das, Deputy Director of ARThinkSouthAsia, will facilitate this workshop. The workshop will provide an overview of project management, explore best practices through case studies, look at tools and software to create a project timeline, and put all these learnings into practice through an experiential activity.
- Mid-career culture professionals with at least 3 years of work experience in the cultural sector. They could be either employed with a company or work as a freelance cultural professional.
- Should be fluent in English.
Who should attend:
- Culture professionals who are currently employed at various cultural organisations in a management capacity as well as independent consultants who handle various projects such as conferences, events, art projects of artists, or festivals.
- Culture professionals who want to take up project management roles.
- Young entrepreneurs.
