Each year and for the last 40 years, the Fulbright Foundation in Greece has nominated a limited number of participants to the Salzburg Global Seminar sessions. For the last three years, the Foundation has supported participation in the Salzburg Global Forum for Young Cultural Innovators (YCI).
The Young Cultural Innovators session is an annual series that brings minimum 50 of the world's most talented young innovators from the culture and arts sector together to help them develop the dynamic vision, entrepreneurial skills, and global networks needed to allow them, their organizations, their causes and their communities to thrive in new ways. The artistic disciplines represented by the young innovators range from the visual and performing arts, literature, and cultural heritage, to foods, fashion, architecture, and design. The Forum also assists the YCIs in creating "culture hubs" in target cities to share the learning, foster a multiplier effect, and magnify the impact of the YCI network created in Salzburg. The "culture hubs" will convene mini-sessions, workshops and public events and become a local resource for emerging cultural innovators. Athens is one of the target cities and the increased number of YCI alumni is joining forces with follow-up initiatives to bring the city onto the cultural map.
