Applications for the 2019 Oxford Cultural Leaders programme are now open

Applications are now open for Oxford Cultural Leaders 2019, the residential leadership programme designed and delivered by Oxford University’s Gardens, Libraries & Museums in partnership with the Saïd Business School.

Oxford Cultural Leaders is a unique programme for directors and senior managers in cultural organisations, who want to redefine their identity as leaders and their vision for their institution at a time of increasing challenge and complexity for the sector.

Designed and delivered by Oxford University’s Gardens, Libraries & Museums (GLAM), in partnership with Saïd Business School, the programme brings together expertise from the cultural and business sectors to encourage participants to explore how cultural organisations can reinvent themselves as not-for-profit hybrid-businesses, with entrepreneurial ways of thinking and behaving.

As the recent devastating fire at the National Museum in Rio revealed, cultural leaders are currently having to grapple with a huge range of issues, from funding and political challenges to complex internal demands and changing audience expectations. These multi-layered challenges require leaders who are dynamic, flexible and responsive, and who are able to steer their institutions successfully through change.
