Creative Leadership, a new free programme run by the School for Social Entrepreneurs, funded by Arts Council England’s Transforming Leadership programme will support you for two years with a part-time learning programme, and grant of up to £2,000. (There is additional funding available to support any access needs you may have.)
They will help you become a more confident and skilled leader, able to create greater social impact in the arts and culture sector. You’ll develop a trusted support network, and you’ll gain the headspace you need to map out your next steps.
They’re looking for two groups of people:
- Early-career leaders– active in the arts and culture sector (including freelancers), demonstrating passion and ideas for developing and eventually leading projects with social impact.
- Current leaders – people currently in, or about to move into decision-making, influential roles (including freelancers), with proven achievements in the arts and culture sector with social impact.
- They are especially looking to support people from diverse backgrounds, including:
- people of colour and people from minority ethnic backgrounds;
- D/deaf and disabled people, including those with learning disabilities and non-visible disabilities;
- people with caring responsibilities;
- LGBTQ+ people;
- people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
- Free part-time learning programme, to help you develop your leadership skills and the impact of your organisation/project
- A network of supportive peers– meet regularly with people in similar roles to gain support and work through challenges together
- £2,000 financial support (and additional funding for access needs, if required)
