Leading Culture - A Dynamic Challenge
Today’s arts, cultural and creative sectors encompass a broad and eclectic mix of organisations – from the well-established opera house, to quirky creative businesses, via heritage, theatres, companies and spaces. The sector also includes a significant proportion of individual leaders - artists, makers, producers, curators, who combine artistic and creative innovation with influence, advocacy and resilience to deliver at the highest levels.
Sectors champion their distinctiveness and acclaim a range of unique characteristics that set each apart in creative practice, engagement and development. But is the leadership the same? In today’s complex environment just how transferable are the skills and competences of best practice? The talk will explore the complexities and challenges of leadership & management in the 21st Century cultural field.
