About Clore Leadership 

Clore Leadership is a dynamic and inclusive resource for leaders and aspiring leaders in the arts, culture, and creative sectors. We aim to inspire and equip leaders to have a positive impact on society through great leadership of culture.

Established since 2003, this pioneering programme is the first of its kind in the UK, designed to develop and strengthen leadership across the cultural and creative industries.

Clore Leadership provides a robust and nurturing foundation for leadership, enabling leaders at every stage of their career to enhance their leadership skills, competencies, and performance.

Clore Leadership is dedicated to cultivating excellence and innovation in the leadership of arts, culture, and creativity by empowering individuals and championing diversity and collaboration.

Society needs great culture and great culture needs great leaders

Culture forms and is informed by society, therefore our leaders must be well equipped to meet today’s challenges. We believe that for society to flourish, it needs great culture, and great culture needs great leaders.

21 Years of Clore Leadership

As we celebrate 21 years of Clore Leadership, take a look back over the years from the very first Fellows to the network today as we reflect on the impact our works has made on the cultural landscape since the Clore Leadership Programme was launched.
