Alternative Leadership Models
A long-term project investigating collaborative / collective and co-leadership alternatives for arts organisations.
Freya is undertaking a long-term project investigating collaborative / collective and co-leadership alternatives within arts organisations in Australia and internationally.
Are there opportunities to rethink traditional notions of leadership and professional development that commonly manifest in the arts? What are the challenges and opportunities of re-imagining shared responsibility? Despite examples of artist collective models from across cultures, there are relatively few established examples of alternative organisational leadership structures within arts organisations.
A set of key considerations will form the basis of these conversations. Broadly, these will focus on the impact on the organisation (culturally, financially, creatively); the experience of the individuals within the leadership group and the wide-ranging attitudes to alternative (particularly collective) models in different parts of the world.
