Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation we are putting a temporary hold on accepting applications to the CPC programme. We are awaiting clarification from our stakeholders and funders before we issue further information. We want to ensure we plan carefully to make the best use of funds for the benefit of our programme participants and the wider cultural sector in Norfolk and Suffolk. We remain committed to going ahead with the programme and will be updating information here on our website and on social media as we know more.
Collaboration: Place: Change is a new leadership programme designed to equip current and next-generation creative and cultural leaders with the skills they need to drive creative, social and economic change across Norfolk and Suffolk.
The 30-month programme will support two cohorts of leaders, focusing on developing collaborative leadership skills, innovative thinking and place-based awareness. The programme will be delivered to 40 participants using a mix of physical and virtual means.
Cohort one will comprise of developing cultural leaders or senior managers living or working in Norfolk and/or Suffolk. Applications are open now.
Cohort two will be focused on emerging and early career leaders with up to 5 years’ experience. Application for this cohort will be advertised in early 2021.
Collaboration: Place: Change is one of 18 projects nationally supported by the Arts Council England Transforming Leadership Fund. The fund was established to address specific issues around diversity across leadership, opportunities for emerging and early career leaders, and the development of executive skills at senior levels.
The programme is managed by the National Centre for Writing for the New Anglia LEP Culture Board, in partnership with Clore Leadership, Achates Philanthropy and the University of East Anglia. It is supported by Arts Council England, Suffolk County Council, Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council and other cultural organisations in Norfolk and Suffolk.
