WHO: The Clore Leadership Programme is currently inviting applications from exceptional individuals with the potential to take on significant leadership roles within culture.
WHAT: Sponsored by Arts Council England, these general fellowships are open to candidates with at least 5 years' paid work experience either in employment, self-employed or freelance, usually in the cultural sector. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a knowledge, understanding and passion for culture. The Fellowship Programme aims to shape emerging creative leaders through in-depth learning, tailored as far as possible to the needs, aspirations and circumstances of about 25 to 30 individuals a year. Fellows also benefit from unparalleled access to senior cultural leaders and to extensive networks. The structure of the programme includes: residential courses; an extended placement for a period of approximately 3 months; individually-selected training, mentoring and coaching. We welcome applications for general fellowships from people working across a wide range of creative and cultural activity, and also from those from outside the cultural sector who want to develop as a leader within it. In addition, we also offer a number of Specialist and Consortium-supported Fellowships. These vary from year to year and in 2012/13 will include an Artist Fellowship - supported by the Arts Council England. Further details on the specific criteria for each Specialist Fellowship can be found on our website.
WHEN: Fellows can choose to take a period of six/seven months away from work and receive a bursary while doing their programme, or in some cases continue to be attached to their place of work, with their employer being compensated for the sustained periods when they're away. The closing date for all applications is by 12 noon, 24 February 2012.
