There is a significant lack of diversity within cultural leadership nationally and regionally. To ensure the long-term sustainability of cultural leadership we welcome applications which represent our region in terms of ethnicity, disability, gender and socio-economic background.

To be eligible for the programme, you must be:

  • A developing cultural leader or senior manager (employed or freelance) with 5+ years’ experience of strategic development, initiating innovative projects and leading partnerships in the arts, culture, museums, libraries, Higher Education or public sector*
  • Living or working in the local authority areas of Norfolk and Suffolk
  • Be committed to taking part in a significant period of directed and self-directed learning in order to strengthen and develop their individual leadership practice

*Example job titles for applicants working in organisations could include Head of Communications, Museums Visitor Manager, General Manager in a Theatre, Local Authority Arts and Events Manager, Library Manager, Programme Director, Finance Director, Head of Fundraising, Head of Learning & Participation. For freelance applicants, you may have a portfolio career which includes several strands of work. You may be an Artist Educator, Artist Practitioner, Theatre Director, Creative Producer, Community Artist, Performer, Events Manager, Festival Manager. This is not an exhaustive list – you may have a relevant role which differs from these.
