Leadership Program

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 new Leadership Program is built on the success and learnings of our previous leadership programs, and incorporates new content and approaches with a focus on fostering innovation and sustainability.

At the heart of the program design is an understanding that our sector is already rich in knowledge and capability, and that artists and arts leaders learn and evolve through sharing stories and experiences. The program is built around these strengths, and aims to activate capacity and enrich the sector through knowledge-sharing and network-building across regions and areas of practice.

The Leadership Program offers a dynamic suite of development opportunities for arts leaders at all career stages. Participants will share experiences, form dynamic connections, develop new skills and build confidence in their own capabilities. They will form networks and relationships, also share the benefits and outcomes of the program across their organisations and the wider arts community.

Online course: Arts and Culture Strategy

Arts leaders have a rewarding but tough task - creating sustainable organisations that can deliver real value to society. Being an effective leader means that you have to constantly adapt and cleverly use the best tools at your disposal to reach as many people as possible. This online course is designed to help leaders at any level do just that.

This course has been made available by the National Arts Strategies (NAS) in the US and is the result of an exciting partnership between the University of Pennsylvania and NAS.

The course is available on demand, meaning you can start learning when and where it is most appropriate for you. The course is free.
