Clore Leadership and the Cultural Governance Alliance presents its Spring 2024 Governance Webinar series to address key areas of support for the arts and cultural sector.

The three-series webinar topics being explored stem from participant feedback at previous CGA events responding to the governance challenges you’ve told us about.

The webinar series will cover:

  • Governance 101 – Wednesday 31 January 2024
  • Socioeconomic diversity and governance – Wednesday 28 February 2024
  • Restitution, repatriation & colonial heritage – Wednesday 27 March 2024



Governance 101 – Wednesday 31 January 2024

Revisiting the basics of good governance for the cultural sector with a particular focus on smaller orgs/non-NPOs. This first webinar will be presented by Clore Leadership Governance Associates, repeating the in-person governance basics sessions run at our Governance Now conference.

If you have specific areas of governance that you’d like us to address in this session, please email us at [email protected] or tweet us at @GovernCulture


Socioeconomic diversity and governance – Wednesday 28 February 2024

Board diversity continues to be a topic at the top of the list for our participants – with socio-economic diversity in trustees becoming increasingly prominent as an area not yet addressed to a significant degree. Building on discussions with the Jerwood Foundation and their ‘Work in Practice’ toolkit launched earlier this year, the webinar will aim to address:

  • How might boards attract trustees from a wider range of socio-economic backgrounds and what is best practice in quantifying such approaches?
  • What aspects of governance need to shift/evolve to enable those from a wider variety of backgrounds to participate in decision-making processes?
  • The importance of intersectionality and socio-economic background.

MARCH 2024

Restitution, repatriation & colonial heritage – Wednesday 27 March 2024

The final webinar in the series will predominantly focus on the museums & heritage sectors, examining approaches boards are taking to current issues of restitution, decolonisation and tackling racism. We will explore the work being done as part of the Welsh Government’s Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan, hearing from participants from the Association of Independent Museums’ Re:Collections project.

This topic will also lead us to exploring fundraising and the links to colonial heritage, which many arts organisations (and indeed, funders) are grappling with. Themes to be covered include:

  • Exploring a cultural organisation board’s role in building on conversations that took place at Governance Now 2023
  • Approaches to Anti-racism in museums that might be replicated across the cultural sector
  • Examination of issues connected to colonial heritage which go beyond museum collections, funding streams, culture wars and the moments that culture and politics collide.

We are pleased to welcome speakers: Lisa Ollerhead, Director of Association of Independent MuseumsRaj Pal, consultant for Re:Collections projectCarrie Canham Curator at Amgueddfa Ceredigion Museum and Rose Thorn, ‘community partner’ for Re:Collections project.
