The Academy for Cultural Diplomacy Internship Project (2020-25)
Internship at the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy
The Academy for Cultural Diplomacy Internship Project (2020-25) is a 5-year program with the main purpose to enable students who need an internship as a compulsory part of their BA, MA or other graduate studies to engage in cultural diplomacy and in doing so, to further promote cultural diplomacy and multiculturalism worldwide.
The positioning of the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy in the centre of Europe, made it a natural hub for the younger generation and indeed, the past years previous projects have been witnessed to interns being active participants in the multicultural field, where lasting friendships were formed and valuable contacts made, which immediately expanded each individual’s network to all parts of the world.
The diverse multicultural environment provided an excellent framework for Cultural Diplomacy to be practiced on a daily basis within the office as well as outside of the office. One of the main privileges afforded by the project was to work in a young, interdisciplinary and international environment, which served as a model of successful multiculturalism in practice. The experience of learning to work together in a multicultural and international organizational environment was a rare, unique and a rewarding common experience.
