“The Future Leaders Program of the Australia Council of the Arts is dedicated to transforming our sector’s knowledge, skills and capabilities by supporting emerging arts leaders of diverse art forms from around Australia and the Indo-Pacific.
The Future Leaders Program is designed to transform our sectors knowledge by developing skills and capabilities of our emerging practitioners. The program brings together a group of diverse practitioners to engage with current and relevant themes affecting the future of the arts. Together, future leaders will work through the common challenges and opportunities faced within the sector today. The Future Leaders Program is a personal and professional development opportunity – it will enhance your skills and capabilities, develop your networks and provide a platform for growth.
The Future Leaders Program is a professional development opportunity, which brings together a mixed cohort of 20 Australian and 5 International participants to take part in a twelve-month program from May 2020-May 2021. Future Leaders also have the opportunity to complete a 4-week secondment with an organisation of their choice.
The International Leadership Program invites applicants from Indonesia, India, China, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, The Philippines, Vietnam, Fiji and Samoa.”
For this upcoming cohort, Raz Salvarita (from the Philippines) has been selected to take part in the program. To add to his vast experience within the realm of inter-mix community collaborative endeavours, he looks forward to immerse in this program to continue to sharpen his abilities to congeal creative collaborations within the Indo-Pacific region.
It is a challenging and exciting time to anchor all the more the power of creativity and empathy in the leadership roles of artists as the world unfolds to a transition from the global pandemic.
The program begins in the fall of 2020 until 2021.
