Global Development Opportunities for Leaders Working in Arts, Screen, and Creative Sectors


Applications for  ICE 2012/13 have now closed.  The ICE 2012/13 awardees will be announced in November 2012. 

International Creative Entrepreneurs is an innovative development opportunity for leaders working in the arts, screen and creative sectors.

ICE offers an intensive, fully funded programme that includes a three month placement overseas, one-to-one mentoring and action learning sessions for five of Scotland’s creative leaders and entrepreneurs.

Placements are in creative organisations or social enterprises in Australia, Brazil, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. Each successful candidate will be offered access to the leadership team, business model and hands on project work at one of the host organisations. S/he will also be matched with a mentor or coach for the duration of the placement.

The programme is designed to meet the development needs of individual participants, with a particular emphasis on leadership and entrepreneurship.

We’re seeking applications from creative leaders across Scotland who are committed to their self development and can demonstrate a real desire to take on the challenge of working globally. Applicants should be working in the arts, screen and creative industries, be based in Scotland and able to complete a placement before the end of September 2013.

We prefer applicants to use the online application form wherever possible. We recommend preparing your application offline, as semi-completed forms cannot be saved and returned to. You can download a Word version of the application form here.

As part of the application process you will need to upload a CV and a completed Monitoring Form.

The deadline is 21 September 2012 at 5pm.
