Leading culture in the 21st century is a dynamic new programme created specifically for senior cultural sector leaders working in diverse international locations (Asia, Africa, the Americas, Australia and Europe as well as the UK). Providing stimulation, provocation and access to the leadership of a range of London’s world-class cultural institutions, leading culture brings a timely, bespoke opportunity to think afresh with an international peer group and to challenge and be challenged on issues of leadership, resilience, creative risk and business innovation.

Over recent years, King’s College London has developed its position at the interface between the needs of the cultural sector and the evidence, insight and academic analysis that can support cultural organisations in achieving their strategic aims and ambitions. Leading culture builds on this strength, harnessing excellence, innovation and distinctiveness - using the visceral intelligence that forms through industry-centred models of good practice to juxtapose cutting edge theoretical frameworks with dynamic thought leadership.
