Our Creative and Cultural programmes include:

  • Professional development and support for visual and contemporary artists working with children and young people.
  • Providing support, advice and programme development as part of our consultancy service.
  • Establishing new projects and programmes and working in partnership to do this.

Courses of interest:

  • Senior Leader Apprenticeship (Arts and Culture) with an MBA top up. Over the last seven years Arts Connect delivered a postgraduate level leadership programme that attracted 162 arts and culture participation and engagement professionals. The programme raised the ambition, quality and impact of their work and supported its future sustainability. When the University of Wolverhampton Business School began developing the Senior Leader Apprenticeship programme, we saw the opportunity to create an apprenticeship dedicated to the arts and culture sector. The Senior Leader Apprenticeship (Arts and Culture) with an MBA top up option is available at the University.

Some resources you may find useful:

  • Cultural Leadership a space where we have shared current discussions and debates around themes and topics concerning arts and cultural leaders today.
  • Local Cultural Education Partnerships in October 2015, Arts Council England launched the Cultural Education Challenge, which asked the art and cultural sector, Local Authorities and other organisations from the voluntary and private sectors to come together to develop a more joined-up local arts and cultural offer. One of the means for achieving this was to create new place based, collaborative partnerships called Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs). Find your local LCEP and get in touch here.

Where do we work?

As part of the School of Creative Industries at the University of Wolverhampton, we’re now focusing the majority of our work around the University’s geographical footprint, mainly in the areas of Dudley, Sandwell, Telford, Walsall and Wolverhampton. But we’re always interested in opportunities to work more widely with partners that share our ambitions.
