Is a Clore Fellowship Right for Me?

The Fellowship Programme is for leaders who have ambition and vision, and can show clearly how they might take their leadership to the next level.

Clore 2016/17 Fellows at a Residential

We are looking for leaders who are dynamic, strategic and collaborative; who possess a high degree of intellectual curiosity, creativity, integrity and emotional intelligence.

You will be entrepreneurial and driven to making a difference in your organisation, community of practice, sector and/or society through culture.

This adaptive programme is for leaders from across the cultural sector who are poised to take on a significant leadership challenge, to make a step change in their leadership careers and the cultural sector: perhaps you are about to take on a major project or executive leadership role, or are ready to develop your organisation. Whether working independently or as part of an institution, you will be able to demonstrate your aptitude and appetite for effecting significant change.

We aim to increase the diversity of leaders in arts and culture and particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse leaders and D/deaf and disabled leaders, who are currently under-represented in the sector. 

More clearly than before, I understand that leadership is not a role or a position. It’s much bigger than that: it’s a behavior, a way of being. Leadership is to act consciously to help a group of individuals to achieve their common purpose.
