Young Cultural Leaders is a new program starting in 2021 which is being designed to lead the way for transformational change, led by young people. The course will provide participants with the knowledge, tools and support to learn more about leadership skills and pathways within the cultural sector.

This leadership program aims to increase the diversity of arts leadership. We believe that the arts and culture can promote inclusive and sustainable cultural change. We believe that young people should have a place at the table, have the power to shape arts and culture now and in the future.

This course is still being designed. It is important that even at this stage, especially at this stage, young people have a say in what the course looks like. We want to provide opportunities to convene power, exposure and resources in support of young people’s courage, innovation and aspiration.
