How would the School help you as a CEO or Artistic Director?
As a CEO, artistic director, chief curator or other senior professional it’s your job to keep the show on the road. In the contemporary cultural climate that has to mean an understanding of how fundraising works and taking an active role in engaging with key donors, funders and sponsors.
If you invest in your self by attending the school you’ll gain access to to key skills. You’ll learn how to set up or manage a development function, identifying the right staff as well as developing a strategy and setting targets. More than that you’ll learn how you can play a vital role in building sustainability by actually engaging prospects: pitching to sponsors, soliciting HNWI over drinks, or inspiring audience members and visitors to contribute regular gifts.
By attending the programme you’ll be in great company alongside CEOs and senior mangers from Shakespeare Schools Foundation, Ayr Gaiety, Hackney Empire, Magnae Vitae, York Museums Trust, St. George’s Bristol, and Artichoke.
