Clore Leadership Programme
Clore Leadership Programme



Advanced Cultural Leadership Programme (University of Hong Kong)


Our expertise in developing cultural leaders is recognised internationally, and particularly in Hong Kong, where we have worked in association with Hong Kong University (HKU) to co-create the Advanced Cultural Leadership Programme (ACLP). The ACLP is a unique relationship between Clore and HKU. With its mix of local and international experts, the programme brings a global perspective to the Hong Kong region’s unique needs and sensibilities. ACLP promotes a dialogue that is leading to informed decisions and new strategies for the transformation of the region’s cultural landscape.

Clore Leadership Programme's Role

We have worked closely with HKU to design and develop the structure of the ACLP. For each year of its running, we have recommended and secured the participation of internationally prominent cultural leaders, working with artists and leaders from Hong Kong and the surrounding region to tailor the content of retreats to the ACLP’s aims.


Programme Structure

The ACLP’s structure includes: 

  • Two five-day retreats, focusing on the behaviours and qualities of cultural leaders, as well as specific skills to develop
  • A non-residential module   
  • Lectures and workshops throughout the year

Who Is It For?

Around 20 participants are admitted onto the programme each year. Applicants typically require a minimum of five years’ leadership experience, with a significant track record in the cultural sector.
