By investing in individuals, we aim to strengthen leadership across a wide range of creative and cultural activities.
The annual Clore Fellowship award provides support to Brits and a few internationals who "...may be working freelance or within cultural organisations, of all types and sizes, in areas ranging from archives to theatre production, and including visual and performing arts, film and digital media, heritage, creative industries, museums, libraries and cultural policy."
While Americans probably don't qualify for the awards, there may be opportunities to do interesting projects with Clore Fellows.
"The programme blends real-life examples with practical skills and tools.
You will be expected to challenge and stretch yourself. Peer learning is a key element of the programme. It is not a taught course and there are no exams or qualifications. Instead you will learn from experience, your own and others, by sharing and reflecting and by putting your new-found skills into practice through workshops, a secondment and collaborative enquiry.
You will be encouraged to be curious, to question, to discuss and to write about cultural leadership."
