CPC Emerging Leaders

Collaboration: Place: Change Emerging Leaders is a cultural leadership development programme open to cultural leaders or managers with up to 5 years’ experience who are living and/or working in Norfolk or Suffolk. Applications are welcome from those working in organisations, in a freelance capacity or in any combination of employment and self-employment.

Applications for the CPC Emerging Leaders programme are now open.

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.

Please read the Key Information Pack before starting your application. It details the focus of the programme and the dates of the day sessions and intensives. It is important you seek the support of a nominator early so they have time to complete the necessary nominator form and return it by the deadline. To be eligible for the programme, you must be:
