Over eight sessions, expert guest speakers dig deep into aspects of creative leadership enriched through personal experience. From a prison project igniting social justice across the US to a UK national museum confronting global warfare, these speakers reveal how creativity can transform any aspect of our world.
Live discussions are mediated by Course Director Leo Crane. Students are encouraged to participate in a Q&A with each speaker, before exploring the issues raised in structured group work. By the end of the course, students will have investigated topics from cultural entrepreneurship and crisis management to community engagement and arts activism. They will have reflected on their own leadership style and grasped their potential.
This Intensive Course consists of live-streamed lectures and discussions. Recordings of the live sessions are accessible anytime during the course via our online learning platform, Canvas.
Students will learn:
- Socially responsive arts activism
- The value of community-led engagement
- The complexities of transforming museums
