Creative Australia’s leadership programs are dedicated to transforming the cultural and creative industry’s knowledge, skills, and capabilities by investing in leaders across all career stages.

Our programs recognise the diverse nature of leadership and build on the rich knowledge and experience across the industry.

We partner with respected facilitators to foster personal and professional development, connecting people across Australia and internationally.

We are guided by First Nations Elders and Custodians to address the diverse needs of leaders working in all parts of the industry, from small to large organisations, emerging to established and independent practice.

Creative Australia is committed to increasing the diversity of leaders in our industry and encourages applications from people who identify as First Nations, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability, and people living in regional and remote areas.

We actively work with individuals to support access needs – including childcare, cultural practices, financial and/or learning access needs as required.

For more details about the leadership programs, please visit the relevant program pages via the listing below.

Participants of our Leadership Programs join an alumni network of over 250 national and international leaders from across the Indo-Pacific following the formal conclusion of their programs.
