This conference will be suitable for those who:
- Believe it is essential that EVERYONE has access to high quality Arts and Culture.
- Are keen to re-shape the word and concept of leadership
- Want to challenge the limiting perceptions of who can be a leader
- Beleive it is important to develop research into these areas
