Jones, S. ORCID: 0000-0003-4789-4948 & Holtham, C. ORCID: 0000-0002-2497-8455 (2018). Skilful Coping with Unorder: Educating 21st Century Arts Leadership. In: 6th Workshop on managing arts and cultural organizations, 30 Nov - 1 Dec 2018, Oxford, UK.


This paper firstly addresses why innovative learning approaches are needed for 21st century leadership education in the arts and cultural sector, then moves on to a case study of how such approaches are being implemented in practice, in the Boosting Resilience project. The approaches taken here are characterised as involving a multi-disciplinary consortium of delivery partners; the use of constructivist pedagogy that draws on arts-based methods of delivery; a participatory and agile learning design process; and the incorporation of on-going evaluation activities, that are woven in to the process of design. The paper concludes with some discussion regarding the potential generalisability of approaches such as those employed on the Boosting Resilience project to arts and cultural leadership education more broadly.
