I’ve been asked to pass the word about the Accelerate Program.
From the British Council Alumni Newsletter to all those interested:
Nominations are now open for ACCELERATE, a new international leadership opportunity designed to boost and further the careers of Indigenous Australians working in the creative industries. In 2009, three outstanding nominees will be awarded with a once-in-a-lifetime programme in the UK and Australia.
Selected through a national competitive process, successful candidates will undertake a tailored professional development programme valued at approximately $20,000, including return flight, leadership training, and an individually designed experience in the creative industries.
It’s been put together by the British Council and the University of Melbourne through the Wilin Centre, in association with the Australia Council for the Arts and Virgin Atlantic Airways.
Applications close 17 July 2009.
If you are interested in applying please go to:
