Why should you join us?

Cultural Accelerator offers lectures and workshops on the most relevant and in-demand topics in the international and European cultural sectors to help expand participants’ expertise, amplify their voices and boost their professional development. 

The project will also give an opportunity for international participants to learn more about the independent cultural scene in Azerbaijan. While local artists and cultural practitioners will get insights into global trends and access international knowledge and experience.


Online lectures and workshops will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation in Azerbaijani. Some events will also have simultaneous translation to Russian language.

Who can participate 

Cultural Accelerator’s online programme is open to anyone interested in the topics and willing to learn more about them from experts working with cultural advocacy, campaigning, bottom-up democracy and policy-making; as well as prominent cultural managers, curators, cultural consultants and policymakers. We are sure that cultural practitioners, researchers and policy-makers from Europe, Caucasus,  Middle East and Central Asia can greatly benefit from taking part in our online programme.
