Initiated by the Clore Duffield Foundation, and sustained by the Foundation's generous support, the Clore Leadership Programme is the UK's first cross-disciplinary leadership programme for the cultural and creative sector. They are our sister programme.
It was established as an independent organisation in 2004. Inspired by the vision of its Founding Director Chris Smith, the Programme focused initially on the Fellowship Programme, aimed at shaping creative leaders through in-depth learning, and tailored as far as possible to the needs, aspirations and circumstances of between 20 and 30 individuals a year. The structure of the Fellowship programme is based on recommendations which were made to the Clore Duffield Foundation by John Holden and Robert Hewison, and includes workshops and residential courses, an extended placement, individually-selected training, mentoring and coaching.
