Clore Fellowships; just what happened next to the Sneezing Man and Who Cares?

An invitation to apply for a Fellowship on the Clore Leadership Programme
The Clore Leadership Programme is currently inviting applications from exceptional individuals with the potential to take on significant leadership roles within culture. Sponsored by the Cultural Leadership Programme, these Fellowships are open to candidates with at least 5 years' paid work experience either in employment, self-employed or freelance, usually in the cultural sector. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a knowledge, understanding and passion for culture. The Fellowship Programme aims to shape emerging creative leaders through in-depth learning, tailored as far as possible to the needs, aspirations and circumstances of about 20 individuals a year. Fellows also benefit from unparalleled access to senior cultural leaders and to extensive networks.
The closing date for all applications is by 12 noon, 11 March 2011. For further details on the Programme and to access the online application form, please visit

Who Cares?
Friday 15 April 1 – 4.30pm, Whitworth Art Gallery
Free but booking is required as places are limited
Museums, health and wellbeing is a partnership between healthcare professionals, six major museums in the North West and researchers from the Psychosocial Research Unit at the University of Central Lancashire. The programme is showing how museums can help to improve the health and wellbeing of participants. Some of the work is about enriching lives through handling objects, looking at art or making art. Other projects, when working closely with health professionals, directly address the participants’ mental state.

Comics and Medicine Conference
(In the USA, but very interesting)

Dr Langley Brown
Arts for Health is thrilled to be working with Dr Langley Brown on the development of its International Arts and Health Archive which is now housed within the Faculty of Art and Design’s Righton Building. We very much hope that this resource will be available to the public very soon.

Online arts funding sites
Art projects are showcased for funding by the public, and receive online sponsorship/pledges from the public to secure funding (known as crowd funding). A useful development in online networking for supporting of the arts.
A plea for Final Cut Studio training for Clive
If anyone offers introductory training in Final Cut Studio, please can you email Clive with the details? Many thanks.
