This report was commissioned by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (Leadership Foundation), Arts Council England (ACE) and the Cultural Leadership Programme (CLP). It examines the landscape of collaborations between higher education institutions (HEIs), and arts, cultural and creative organisations in both the public and private sectors, and looks to the potential of those collaborations for the future.
In doing so, it draws on the leadership literature in both the higher education and cultural sectors, and in particular on work on the leadership of collaborations; identifies the types of collaborations undertaken; examines a number of case studies as examples of good practice; and considers opinions about the nature of these collaborations in general, as articulated by a number of prominent individuals from both sectors involved. It is intended to be of interest to practitioners, policymakers and funders.
We are a membership organisation of and for a sector that has some of the brightest minds in the UK.
Our members are key to our strategy and form a community of higher education institutions with a clear commitment to and experience of developing leadership, governance and management capabilities at all levels. Academic and professional services staff from member institutions contribute to our programmes, projects and research and advise on benefits and services.
