Future Leaders Program

The Future Leaders Program is designed to assist in the development of emerging, high potential arts leaders from across all artforms and backgrounds. During a thought provoking six month journey, participants enhance their own understanding of leadership and engage in a powerful, shared learning experience.

Emerging leaders require foundational skills and knowledge to progress their careers. Learning from the experiences of established leaders across artforms provides vital insight and relevant learning. Following the Program, participants will have the option to undertake a secondment that extends their professional scope.

Who is the Program for?

The Future Leaders Program is for emerging leaders within their first ten years’ experience in the sector.

The program is open to arts leaders working within an organisation, independently or in the community. The Australia Council are looking for applications from a range of art forms from across Australia and selected countries in the Indo-Pacific region.
