A Question of Leadership Conference
Thursday 13th September 2018, 9:30am – 4:00pm
Hope Park Campus, Liverpool Hope University, L16 8HJ
Join us to challenge perceptions of leadership.

Co-hosted by Curious Minds and DIY Theatre, the ‘Question of Leadership’ conference brings together teachers, cultural organisations, artists, performers and academics both to hear inspiring stories about inclusive leadership and research practices across the education and arts sectors and to question notions of leadership and research within these sectors.

The focus will be inclusive practice, with a particular focus on disability. SLiCE® fellows (Specialist Leaders in Cultural Education based in a range of schools across the North West), Mind the Gap, Creative Minds, DIY Theatre, Liverpool Hope University and Open Theatre will be involved as presenters and workshop leaders.

This conference will be suitable for those who:

  • Believe it is essential that EVERYONE has access to high quality Arts and Culture.
  • Are keen to re-shape the word and concept of leadership
  • Want to challenge the limiting perceptions of who can be a leader
  • Believe it is important to develop research into these areas

Schools, cultural organisations, artists, performers and academics are all welcome!
