The Visual Arts South West Leadership Programme (VASWLP) is a leadership development programme for artists, curators, producers, freelancers, sole traders and managers working in the visual arts in the South West, delivered by Debbie Kingsley.
The leadership programme aims to develop individuals, organisations, and potential leaders for the sector motivated by the belief that good leadership supports the creation of great art. The programme puts the artistic vision of the participants first and looks at how they can work to achieve that vision.
The application process took place in February and a cohort of 23 participants were selected. We’ll be catching up with them throughout the programme to review the activities and discover some of the implications and benefits of VASWLP for their careers.
The programme includes workshops, mentoring, ALS, coaching and advisory delivered via five concentrated workshops, peer learning, discussions, provocations, 1:1 mentoring, action learning tasks and a leadership challenge to take place throughout the year.
The first session took place on 17 April 2013. Participant and director of Flow Contemporary Arts, Carolyn Black, shares her thoughts here.
