The Artist as Leader 2006-08

Chris Fremantle worked closely with Professor Anne Douglas to develop the successful application to the AHRC Nature of Creativity Scheme.  He went on to work with Prof Douglas as researcher on the project, interviewing over 30 artists, organisational leaders and policy makers.  Prof Douglas and he co-authored all the papers and publications.

The Artist as Leader explores the experience of artists in relationship to the concept of leadership: the artist is sometimes an organisational leader, but may sometimes lead in other ways. Drawing on a network of artists, leaders of arts organisations, and cultural policy makers, The Artist as Leader Research Report sets out the policy context in which artists are working, and develops three scenarios which describe the ways in which artists lead through the practice of art.

The partners have been:
Cultural Enterprise Office,
Performing Arts Labs,
Scottish Leadership Foundation
On The Edge Research, Gray’s School of Art.
