Fabric 2020 - Application form
Fabric is not a course or training on leadership, but an informal peer-to-peer development programme for people who are keen to grow their confidence and agency for leading creative initiatives and projects that will have positive impacts in Dundee.
We ran the Fabric programme in 2018-19 and you can read insights into last year's Fabric programme and see full report here:
This year the programme has a focus on collective leadership and social justice, and includes opportunities to hear from city and community leaders, to share knowledge and experiences with each others, and to discuss about how we can collectively make Dundee even better!
A selected group of 20 people will come together monthly to share ideas, inspirations and experiences, from March to June 2020, in various spaces, and meet with current doers and connectors across the city. The programme is designed to immerse participants in new contexts, and widen their knowledge and understanding of the city.
Fabric is open to anyone who is actively interested in the direction of the city and wants to further develop their creative leadership skills.
You can apply for the Fabric programme regardless of your creative practice, stage in your professional career or the demographic you identify with – we are particularly keen to ensure that the Fabric group reflects the social, economic and cultural fabric of the city.
The programme includes 4 day-sessions, from March to June 2020, and is open to anyone who's looking for:
- Time and peer support to reflect on your own creative leadership skills, your core values and your vision for the future;
- Opportunities to better understand Dundee's strengths and challenges, and to create new connections in the city;
- A safe space to meet and discuss with other creative leaders within the city.
