Emerging Leaders 2022 – Creative Think In

Clore Leadership and Contact Theatre, Manchester are partnering to produce Emerging Futures 2022, our conference for early-career cultural sector leaders. Emerging Futures 2022 will take place online and in-person at Contact Theatre, Manchester on 5 May 2022.

To help develop the conference content we are looking for a group of up to 30 emerging leaders to take part in a facilitated online ‘Think In’

  • What we are looking for?

A diverse group of emerging cultural sector leaders who are interested in current leadership issues for the sector, have ideas about what they would like to see in the Emerging Futures conference and would like to work creatively with others to unpick ideas. The Think In session will be facilitated by Dais Hale. 

  • In return

We are able to offer a payment of £25 or equivalent ticket discount to the conference for those taking part in the Think In.

  • To apply

Register your interest in taking part by completing a short web form with your name, contact details and any access needs you have.

Please note 50% of the places will be ring-fenced for emerging leaders who are D/deaf, disabled or neurodivergent and/ or Black, Asian and ethnically diverse. Following the deadline for registrations any unfilled slots will be filled by the wider applicant pool. We will also be looking to achieve a mix of regional, gender and art form representation.
