The Climate Assembly is now full.

Online, Tuesday 7 February 2023.

Clore Leadership presents a Climate Assembly for Clore Fellows to consider the role of cultural leadership in taking action around climate and ecological emergency. Joining together with guest speakers presenting perspectives from their work and leadership, and Clore Fellows past and present, we will consider what individual and collective response from and between cultural leaders is needed.  

This session will also look ahead to a new collaborative programme working with the British Council where international collaboration around climate change between cultural sector leaders will be explored. 

Guest speakers confirmed: Farhana Yamin, lawyer, author and activist; Immy Kaur, Civic Square and Hilary Jennings, Transition Network; Ben Twist, Creative Carbon Scotland and Eduardo Carvalho, curator Brazil.

Prince Laryea
My professional background touches music and dance as both a successful artist and senior organisational leader. I now work extensively with senior executive leaders and creatives across arts, culture and entertainment. Empathy is a powerful tool within coaching. Working with someone who has some experience of what you might be facing can make all the difference. Through powerful conversations and time-honoured coaching techniques, I empower individuals at every stage of their career with tools to tackle fear, doubt, apathy and confusion, inspiring courage, confidence, clarity and focus to unlock creative potential in order to take control of their situation and reach new heights in both their professional and private world.

Hi Team, I'm testing out my newly aquired CiviCRM and webform skills so have put together a little questionaire for you all to find out how good you are in the kitchen.
