The Clore Leadership Programme

I am delighted to announce that I have been offered a place on the Clore Leadership Programme starting in September 2018 until 31st July 2019. This is going to support my role as an Artistic Director for Audiovisability and working in music education fields too.

It is with acknowledgement that I thank my family, mentors Sarah Pickthall at Cuspinc, Ken Carter and Deaf Explorer to name a few and friends for their continued support.  I look forward to learning, sharing, building networks and inspiring the next generation of musicians and artists, – both deaf and hearing.

About Clore Leadership Programme:
The Clore Leadership Programme is a unique programme of cultural leadership development that seeks to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement. Each year, around 25 exceptional leaders from a range of specialisms across the cultural sector are awarded a place on the programme. “The 2018/19 Clore Fellows stand out for their resilience, their curiosity and their empathy. They are civic leaders, committed to giving back, with many already holding Trustee and voluntary positions and setting up initiatives for change and advocacy beyond their day jobs.” Read the full announcement here:
