A brand new event packed with big ideas and thought-provoking debate around creative leadership and cultural democracy

This week, the Clore Leadership Programme presents Emerging Futures 2018: Leadership, Culture & Big Ideas. We’re super excited to be a partner for this brand new event, alongside Manchester International Festival and The Space. Taking place in Manchester on Friday 14 September, Emerging Futures 2018 will bring together aspiring and emerging cultural leaders, change-makers and creative entrepreneurs with inspiring creative thinkers, makers and doers.

FutureEverything are the digital partners for Emerging Futures 2018. We’ve been busy curating content and conversation on the Hub and social media on the run up to the event. We’ll also be taking over the Clore Leadership Twitter feed as social media rapporteurs on the day, bringing Emerging Futures to online participants by capturing event footage and photography, live streaming sessions throughout the day, posting commentary to social media, and feeding in comments and questions from the at-home audience via Sli.do. Here are your 5 ways to join Emerging Futures 2018 online. After the event we’ll be pulling together content captured on the day and adding this to The Hub to create a rich record of Emerging Futures 2018.

Emerging Futures is designed around leadership insights, thought-provoking debate and the space to exchange ideas. The event boasts an incredible line-up including keynote speakers Dr. Maria Balshaw and Ibrahim Mahama, the Big Debate Panel — John McGrath, Dr Cecilia Wee, Clare Reddington, Javaad Alipoor and Viktoria Modesta — and many more! It’s a jam-packed day of inspiration for anyone aspiring to lead in their arts and culture careers or practice. Check out the full event programme here.

If you’re coming along on the day, great! We look forward to seeing you there. Or, if you missed out on a ticket, don’t worry —  you can catch all the action online. Meanwhile, why not join the Emerging Futures 2018 Facebook group and get to know your peers?
