About the opportunity

The Australia Council Leadership Program responds to the evolving arts ecology, and the need to support our sector’s emerging and established leaders with the skills and capabilities to lead through change.

Our alumni is an active network of arts leaders who pursue continued learning and engagement with the sector and the critical challenges it faces.

The Leadership Program regularly provides opportunities for alumni to further develop their leadership by providing by participating in key activities. As part of this support, the Australia Council invites applications from past participants to join a delegation of arts leaders at REMIX Sydney on 7-8 December 2017.

REMIX explores the intersection between culture, technology and entrepreneurship.

The summit bring together pioneers from different industries to explore the future of the creative industries, creative cities and the creative economy. The arts play an essential role in this discussion and a delegation of leaders will add value to the discourse.

The delegation will focus on the REMIX Academy stream. The Academy includes discussions, panels and workshops to broaden the participants’ thinking and provide a unique learning experience.
