The Clore Leadership Programme is now accepting applications for 2013/14 Fellowships.
The Arts Council is supporting up to eight Fellowships in 2013/14 through the Developing resilient Leadership programme for external candidates. We are specifically funding fellowships for artists, museum, library and arts organisation leaders.
Building a diverse and resilient cultural sector
The Fellowships support the personal and professional development of leaders with the aim of building a diverse and resilient cultural sector.
Fellows take a total of approximately eight months away from work to focus on the programme. A bursary or compensation to their employer of £15,000 is available to all Fellows.
Supporting personal and professional development
The Fellowship Programme supports the personal and professional development of leaders through in-depth learning, tailored to the needs, aspirations and circumstances of around 25 individuals a year, with the aim of building an innovative and resilient cultural sector. Fellows benefit from unparalleled access to senior cultural leaders, a diverse peer group and extensive networks.
Talking of their time on a past fellowship one participant said: ‘The Fellowship helped me to realise and stretch my intellectual capacity, to go out of my comfort zone knowing that I have found a way to manage and thrive in challenging circumstances. I feel excited and inspired by the future.’
