Leading in London: Sync Associates

Monday 4th January, 2010

coloured counters in a line with a clear 'leader'

Leading in London placements are aimed at emerging and mid-career Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) (1.) or Deaf and disabled leaders who want to develop their leadership skills and behaviours in a work environment through shadowing a leader and undertaking key projects with guidance and support. The objective is to 'learn through doing' and the expectation is that the transition from shadowing to delivering will be a quick one. It is intended that placements should be intensive and transformative leadership development.

Placements are facilitated by the Cultural Leadership Programme (CLP), funded by Arts Council England - London via CLP and supported by CLP's programme strands: Powerbrokers (BAME leaders) and Sync (Deaf and disabled leaders).

There are two Leading in London opportunities for BAME leaders and two for Deaf and disabled leaders, and these placements can be three months full-time or up to six months part-time. They are:

Powerbrokers bite Associate : Barbican Centre

Powerbrokers Dance and Performance Associate : Southbank Centre

Sync Development Associate : Whitechapel Gallery

Sync Environmental Strategy Associate : Sadler's Wells

In addition there is the opportunity for a Deaf and disabled leader to undertake a six month placement as an Associate Producer with London 2012's Unlimited Programme.
