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

What is ICE?

International Creative Entrepreneurs (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 entrepreneurs.

In the first year applications were received from creative leaders across Scotland who demonstrated a commitment to their self-development and demonstrated a real desire to take on the challenge of working globally. From these, six outstanding individuals were selected. The six participants have been chosen to carry out placements in creative organisations or social enterprises in Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, and India. Each successful candidate has been matched with an organisation which offers access to the leadership team, business model and hands on project work. The organisations have been selected due to their innovative business model and/or dynamic leader.

Departing from January 2012, the International Creative Entrepreneurs will complete their placements at the exciting organisations they have been matched with, culminating in an event that will see the cohort share their experiences, challenges and achievements with the wider creative sector in Scotland.
