What is the Clore Fellowship?

As the world changes, so do the needs of the sector – and the demands on cultural leaders. This programme addresses the needs of cultural leaders today and for the future #MakeYourDifference

“The Clore Fellowship is for leaders who have ambition and vision and can show clearly how they might take their leadership to the next level. We are looking for leaders who are dynamic, strategic and collaborative; who possess a high degree of intellectual curiosity, creativity, integrity and emotional intelligence. You will be entrepreneurial and driven to make a difference in your organisation, community of practice, sector and/or society through culture.”

This adaptive programme is for leaders from across the cultural sector who are poised to take on a significant leadership challenge, to make a step change in their leadership careers and the cultural sector: perhaps you are about to take on a major project or executive leadership role or are ready to develop your organisation. Whether working independently or as part of an institution, you will be able to demonstrate your aptitude and appetite for effecting significant change.

We aim to increase the diversity of leaders in arts and culture and particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse leaders and D/deaf and disabled leaders, who are currently under-represented in the sector.
