Boosting Resilience: Survival Skills for the New Normal is an intense, boundary-pushing and catalytic two year Executive Learning programme running from 2017 to 2019. It aims to enable senior, executive and board level staff from England-based arts and cultural organisations, music education hubs, ACE accredited museums and local authority library services (that are directly delivered or fully commissioned to a 3rd party) to develop new approaches to building resilience through learning how to make the most of Creative Assets and Intellectual Property.

The programme is supporting 27 participants from a diverse range of organisations from across the country and includes: intensive residencies, online learning platform, mentoring and peer-to-peer support.

The arts, museums, libraries and music education hub sectors are also encouraged to engage with the programme through our online resources. These will be developing over the life of the project and will include: reports, papers, evaluation materials, case studies, films, blogs and other learning materials.


Entry onto the Boosting Resilience programme was by application in July 2017 and all places have now been allocated.
