Social Leadership Australia
The Sydney Leadership Program
The Sydney Leadership Program is Australia's most highly regarded leadership development program. An annual program bringing together leaders and up-and-coming leaders from business, not-for-profit and government, it fosters new leadership skills, new networks and a new determination to create lasting, positive social change.
Together with the Baly Douglass Foundation, the Nelson Meers Foundation supported a scholarship for an established or emerging arts practitioner or administrator (including visual, performance, film and new media) whose work, either directly or indirectly, is driving positive social change.
Why did we fund this scholarship? We believe in supporting all layers of the arts sector. Arts practitioners often do not have the opportunity to participate in learning experiences which will feed their creative talent of giving them new perspectives. We also believe it is important for arts practitioners to participate in society’s leadership dialogue.
