Creative Leadership Program

Develop your leadership skills. Make an impact in your community.
Regional Arts WA in partnership with Arts Margaret River invite you to participate in a dynamic, career developing, two-day Creative Leadership Program.
Designed for organisations, community leaders, local governments, teachers, artists and creative thinkers in the South West, this intensive leadership program will give you the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to build and strengthen your creative leadership skills.
The program is delivered in two modules over two days:
MODULE ONE – BEING CREATIVE
Creative practice skills that everyone can use, no matter the situation.
No background in creative practice is needed to develop these skills.
MODULE TWO – CREATIVITY IN GROUPS
Creativity is most often a group endeavour! Leadership processes for working with groups that need to think laterally and produce creative solutions.
The Creative Leadership Program is led by registered psychologist, Dr Shona Erskine.
Each participant will be provided two packs of evidence-based resource cards to assist in their leadership development.
Morning/afternoon tea and lunch will be provided each day.
