Are you an exceptional arts and culture leader with the potential and desire to drive meaningful change? The Clore Fellowship aims to inspire and equip leaders to have a positive impact on society through great leadership of culture. We believe leaders are change-makers. Will you be one of them?

The Clore Fellowship is a tailored programme of leadership development. We aim to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement through developing the individuals’ leadership capacity. It brings together some of the most creative and dynamic cultural leaders in the UK and beyond for a life-changing adventure - a professional and personal development experience unlike any other.

Is it for me?

The Fellowship is for leaders who have ambition and vision, and can show clearly how they might take their leadership to the next level.

We welcome applications from leaders in all parts of the cultural community: from artists through to entrepreneurs and managers, from freelancers to those working in large institutions, from rural to metropolitan. 

We actively encourage applications from people who are under-represented in cultural leadership such as BAME and/or disabled leaders and offer guaranteed interviews for disabled leaders who meet the minimum criteria and are applying for the first time.

We aim to remove the economic barriers to participation as much as possible and most Fellowships are fully funded. If you have caring responsibilities, we will support you to find ways to undertake your Fellowship which work for you.

Deadline for Fellowship applications is noon, Thu, 29 November, 2018
