Apply for the first Creative Climate Leadership training course

Applications are now open for the first Creative Climate Leadership training course, which will take place from 27-31 March 2017 in Wales. 

Creative Climate Leadership is a two-year Cooperation Project led by Julie's Bicycle. It aims to help artists, cultural professionals and policymakers explore the cultural dimensions of climate change, and take action with impact, creativity and resilience.

Through a series of events, policy labs and training courses, the programme aims to put culture at the forefront of an international response to climate change. 

The Creative Climate Leadership training course is a five-day intensive course for artists and cultural professionals who want to take a lead on climate change.

The week will:

  • Explore the role of culture and creativity in responding to climate change and environmental challenges;
  • Bring together a range of expert guest speakers to share case studies, research, approaches and practical solutions for achieving environmental sustainability in the cultural sector;
  • Enable each participant to develop their leadership and ideas;
  • Prepare participants to apply their learning and new skills when they return home, and support ongoing learning and exchange through an alumni network.

Applications will be considered from all creative disciplines and art forms, as well as from organisations that work directly with the cultural sector, such as networks, associations, funding bodies and policymakers.

  • Cost: £1,000 for UK applicants and €1,200 for international applicants
