"At a critical time it gave me the required authentic conviction and confidence that I needed to hone my decision making, communication and strategic planning. Only by taking the time to reflect was I able to understand what mattered to me and navigate the next stage into the future.” Jackie Wylie, Artistic Director & CEO, National Theatre of Scotland, Clore Fellow

The Clore Fellowship is a tailored programme of leadership development. We aim to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement through developing the individuals’ leadership capacity. It brings together some of the most creative and dynamic cultural leaders in the UK and beyond for a life-changing adventure - a professional and personal development experience unlike any other.
Through the Clore Fellowship, you will:
- Focus on your leadership development for around 5 months whilst staying connected to your workplace
- Participate in in-depth learning tailored to your individual needs, aspirations and circumstances.
- Extend your knowledge and understanding of the wider cultural sector through dialogue, inquiry, study visits, conferences and meetings.
- Increase your skills and leadership acumen through support from a mentor and a coach.
- Benefit from a diverse peer group, connecting with highly experienced leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, artists, and extensive networks.
- Give yourself the space and time to learn, reflect, and do.
The Clore Fellowship aims to inspire and equip leaders to have a positive impact on society through great leadership of culture. We believe leaders are change-makers.
We welcome applications from leaders in all parts of the cultural community: from artists through to entrepreneurs and managers, from freelancers to those working in large institutions, from rural to metropolitan.
We actively encourage applications from people who are under-represented in cultural leadership such as BAME and/or disabled leaders and operate a Guaranteed Interview Scheme for disabled leaders who meet the minimum criteria and are applying for the first time.
"It’s hard to express the power of my Fellowship year. I’m a woman born with a disability in the 70s, when the societal focus to conform, to “not be different” was immense. The time to reflect that my very difference is an asset, shaping the person I am, the way I see the world and wish it be, has had a profound and energising impact.”
Caroline Alton, BBC, Clore Fellow
