Creative Leadership- FREE programme run by the School for Social Entrepreneurs

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.

Key benefits:

  • 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)
