Now in its third year, the acclaimed National Summer School for Arts Fundraising and Leadership will run again in July 2016, and booking is now open for strictly limited places. Led by the University of Leeds in partnership with Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, this week-long residential course for arts managers and fundraisers is led by renowned academics and senior arts sector professionals. It offers a breadth of insight, ideas and skills in how to lead arts organisations, and achieve long-term fundraising success, in ever more challenging economic times.
To complement other fundraising courses that teach the ‘nuts and bolts’ of fundraising, the Summer School focuses on arts fundraising and leadership, addressing key topics such as Cultural Policy, Managing Change, Building Resilience, Cultural Leadership and Changing Business Models. As well as a week of intensive study and practical activity, the Summer School also offers time out for reflection – a rare chance for delegates to step back from the day-to-day pressures to encourage and facilitate new thinking and strategic planning.
