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.

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.
