Open for applications: Museums & Resilient Leadership Programme 2015 – 2016

The Programme draws on a wealth of knowledge and insight about leadership in the cultural and commercial sectors. It puts this learning at your disposal to help you become a cultural leader for the 21st Century; resilient and entrepreneurial.

Funded by Arts Council England (ACE) through the West Midlands Museum Partnership Major Partner Museum programme, MRL commences in May 2015 and concludes in March 2016. Led by Black Country Living Museum, it uses a highly innovative workshop format including two residentials, a number of site visits and an overseas study visit.  It is fully funded by ACE, though there is a small registration cost to your organisation. 14 places are available; 5 will be selected from the East Midlands, 5 from the West Midlands and 4 from elsewhere in England.

The portal for applications opened on Monday 16 February 2015 and will close on Tuesday 31 March. To find out more about the Museum & Resilient Leadership Programme and how to apply, click on the link below.
