Upcoming workshops include:

Each workshop meets online for two hours, once a week for three weeks, combines lectures and small group discussion, and is led by an international expert. There is also an online discussion forum to share information, knowledge and resources and continue the conversation with a small, informed group of international practitioners.
Future workshops will cover a wide range of topics from the fields of cultural policy and planning; arts and culture; heritage and natural heritage; landscape, parks and gardens; and, cultural diversity and human rights.
Workshops can be taken individually, or applied towards the online UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning.
