Application Deadline: Wednesday, July 15

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is pleased to announce the launch of a unique opportunity to participate in the Creative Lab for Cultural Leaders (CLCL) through the seminal and generous support of the Joyce Foundation.

The Creative Lab for Cultural Leaders (CLCL) is a highly interactive opportunity for senior arts leaders and their teams to explore dynamic and innovative leadership and organizational structures. CLCL is a nine-month low-residency program that offers applied professional and relational development for leadership teams of cultural heritage organizations. The program focuses on supporting organizations of culture keepers to deepen their capacity to be anchored in their respective communities and document, originate, circulate, innovate, service, through their own voice, all formations of visual and material art, cultural heritage, and history. The program aims to equip leaders to more effectively grow and sustain their organizations in a climate of increased competition for resources and complex challenges in serving their communities. CLCL offers a three-part series focused on building ongoing strategic skills and tools at the I) individual, II) organizational, and III) sectoral levels. The program will convene participants from six Midwestern cities- Cohort I Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit; Cohort II Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis, creating a geographically diverse cohort of leaders and organizations.

They are currently accepting applications between Monday, June 15 and Wednesday, July 15 participants in the geographic areas of Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and Detroit.
