Expressions of Interest are now open for the Australia Council Leadership Programs

 Australia Council Leadership Program


The Australia Council for the Arts invites Expressions of Interest to a new intake of the Arts Leaders and Future Leaders programs.

These programs provide a platform for arts leaders to develop leadership capabilities to support a sustainabile, resilient and vibrant sector. Participants will engage with some of the most dynamic and influential leaders in Australia, exploring local and global challenges that face the arts today.

The Arts Leaders Program is open to established and mid-career leaders. Participants will commit to a 12 month-long journey of leadership activities including three intensive residentials.

The Future Leaders Program is designed to assist in the development of emerging and high potential arts leaders. The Program runs for six months including two intensive residentials. Participants will also be offered a supported secondment.

Both programs include a range of online meetings, a leadership project and peer-to-peer engagement via an online learning platform.

Applications for both programs close at midnight AEST on Tuesday 12 September 2017.

We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.
