Clore Leadership Programme

Founded in 2003, the Clore Leadership Programme is the first initiative of its kind in the UK, aimed at developing and strengthening leadership across the cultural and creative sectors. Initiated by the Clore Duffield Foundation, the programme is sustained by a partnership between private philanthropy, public funding, and cultural institutions. The programme awards its flagship Clore Fellowships on an annual basis to around 25 carefully selected people from across the UK and beyond.

From artists, entrepreneurs, and curators to heads of established institutions, the Clore Leadership Programme nurtures dynamic and diverse leaders. The participants are drawn from a range of specialisms, including the visual and performing arts, film and digital media, libraries, museums, archives and heritage, and cultural policy. The programme also includes two fortnight-long leadership courses at which fellows have unparalleled access to experienced leaders, work in small groups on practical projects, and attend masterclasses, talks, and workshops on topics such as change management, strategic planning, and cultural policy.
