Delivering India’s first digital Festival Academy
On Monday mornings, Edinburgh Napier Business School’s Dr Gary Kerr and Professor Jane Ali-Knight help deliver the first digital India Festival Academy for the British Council.
“Without doubt, these sessions are my weekly highlight,” says Gary, Lecturer in Festival and Event Management. “It’s where I get to hear the ambition of festival managers from across India, and how they plan to develop their festivals.”
The delivery of this online academy, led from Edinburgh, is a vital part of a longer-term programme by the British Council to support India’s creative economy: and Edinburgh Napier’s success in winning the competitive tender to deliver it reflects the School’s expertise in festivals and events, and online learning.
