Extend Leadership Programme 2020-21: Applications open! Deadline for submission: 23 November 2020 at 10am. 

 
Applications are invited from colleagues working in learning and education roles in the arts and cultural sectors (UK) and the arts sector (Scotland and Wales) interested in participating in the Extend Leadership Programme 2020–21. 
 
Now in its tenth year, Extend is informed by a commitment to empowering education and learning professionals so that they are able to influence the sector’s development, and help to ensure that learning is embedded in arts and cultural organisations. 
 
What is Extend? 
 
Extend is a leadership development programme for mid-career colleagues working in education and learning roles in the arts and cultural sectors, and was developed in response to the under-representation of learning and education professionals in the arts and cultural sectors. The pilot programme was funded by the Cultural Leadership Programme and Creative Scotland; subsequent programmes have been funded by Arts Council England, Creative Scotland and the Arts Council of Wales. 
 
Why apply? 
 
Extend was originally developed by a group of senior professionals working in education and learning roles in the arts, and remains the only leadership programme designed to meet the specific needs of education and learning professionals who aspire to leadership positions in the arts and cultural sectors. 
 
Extend is informed by a commitment to empowering education and learning professionals so that they are able to influence the sector’s development and help to ensure that learning is embedded in arts and cultural organisations.

Description: 

Join Engage and Engage Scotland at this intensive professional development event for mid-career and senior gallery and visual arts educators, hosted by Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA), V&A Dundee and Hospitalfield, Arbroath

We invite colleagues to reflect on what the future of gallery and visual arts education could look like in the next three decades in the UK and internationally. Art and design education are under pressure across the UK, as are resources for artists and arts and cultural organisations for education and participatory activity. Beyond this, the world faces huge environmental, social and financial challenges.

Attendees are invited to present or run an activity or workshop for their peers at DCA or V&A Dundee. There will be visits to Hospitalfield, Arbroath, and The McManus Gallery and Cooper Gallery, Dundee.

The programme will also include presentations from the following speakers:

  • Sarah Derrick, Head of Learning, DCA
