Oxford Cultural Leaders Residential Programme

Oxford University Museum, 10 - 15 April 2016

Oxford University Museum, in partnership with the Said Business School, created the programme Oxford Cultural Leaders as "a response to the clear message from governments across the globe that cultural organisations need to look beyond the state for their income, demonstrating their commercial acumen and ability to deliver successfully new business models." Having access to expertise from across the cultural and business sectors has enabled Oxford University Museum to develop a programme that is unique within the museum and cultural sectors internationally. The programme was held for the first time in March 2015, bringing together a group of dynamic leaders to experiment and take risks with new business models and to explore new ways of working and creating organisational cultures that encourage new ideas.

The programme is aimed at international CEOs, directors, heads of department and senior managers who want to redefine their role as a leader and vision for their organisation at a challenging time for the cultural sector. Within a proactive learning and working environment participants should be enabled to take risks and break old habits, so they can think differently on a conceptual, contextual, organisational and personal level.

The Oxford Cultural Leaders residential programme will run from 10 - 15 April 2016. The deadline for applications is 30 November 2015.
