I am thrilled to finally be able to share that I have been accepted onto the Creative Communities Fellowship. Over the next year I will be joining 24 others in Yorkshire, then the USA(!!!?) to develop some ideas I’ve been plotting and planning!
I am one of 25 creative entrepreneurs working to drive transformational change in their communities through the power of arts and culture. From Edinburgh to Brighton, Fellows were selected amongst communities throughout the UK to explore proven tools and frameworks with faculty and form a community of practise, enriching projects that advance a more equitable world.
The programme includes online learning modules in addition to two in-person convenings; one at an incubator-like environment in Yorkshire and one at a summit of arts and culture leaders in the United States.
UK Creative Community Fellows programme fees are underwritten thanks to generous funding through Arts Council England Transforming Leadership Programme and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch).
I’m so excited to meet the rest of the cohort!
