“Crafting international strategies” is the first international edition of the SAM – Strategic Arts Management master class. It will be held on October 23rd and 24th, 2014 at Impact Hub Barcelona.


The master class is a sort of dynamic interactive lab where the emerging approaches to creative and cultural entrepreneurship will be focused upon, crafting guidelines and technical tools from the shared analysis of intuitions and projects overcoming the conventional training methods and building a multiple perspective.


SAM master class is a training proposal mainly addressed to:

– professionals of cultural and creative organizations,

– cultural managers and experts active in cultural project designing,

– cultural and creative entrepreneurs involved in internationalization processes,

– scholars, researchers and academics.


Intuitions, ideas and experiences related to existing and new projects will be shared and analyzed from various perspectives: from the critical exploration of the emerging cultural markets to the European Union programme framework, from the managerial strategies and choices to marketing and communication.
