International Training Program “Creative Management of Music Festivals”
The Sibelius Academy Continuing Education (Helsinki) and the Institute for Cultural Programs
(St. Petersburg) have run their international educational project “Creative Management of Music Festivals” – a training program for music festivals organizers in Northwest Russia.
New educational project was followed by the international educational programs “Arts Management Towards Year 2003” (1999-2000) and “Music Festivals Management” (2005-2006) that had a great success in St. Petersburg.
The immediate objective of the “Creative Management of Music Festivals” project was to improve leadership and management skills of the local festival managers.
Central topics of the educational modules:

The project aim was to promote sustainable growth and internationalization of the Northwest Russian festivals. In order to promote the growth the project enabled the creation of a network for music festivals of the Northwest region. Furthermore the project developed ways to exchange best practices between Russian and Finnish music festivals.
