Cultural Leadership Programme


Applications for the Cultural Leadership Programme are now closed. Applicants will be informed of the decision in April 2021.

Transforming Narratives’ Cultural Leadership Programme provides a unique opportunity for artists and creative professionals in Birmingham, Pakistan and Bangladesh to meet with each other and contribute to the curation and delivery of new projects within a groundbreaking international partnership. 

It will build skills, confidence and knowledge, and extend professional networks for emerging and established cultural leaders, enabling them to learn more about the challenges and opportunities in leading collaborative international cultural activity. 

Our free programme is open to emerging and established leaders from Birmingham, Pakistan or Bangladesh, who have experience of, or an interest in, the arts or creative industries. Birmingham applicants must identify as being of Pakistani, Bangladeshi or Kashmiri heritage, living and or working in Birmingham. 

The programme will be delivered by Culture in Flux and a team from the Institute of Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths College, University of London who will work closely with colleagues from Culture Central to deliver it as part of Transforming Narratives. 

The phased Cultural Leadership Programme will be delivered online between April and November 2021.
