Tuesday, 27 May 2014

Key Dates:

Applications Close: 06 July 2014

ACCELERATE is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from across Australia with at least five years’ experience in the creative industries, who have a bold vision for where they want to take their career and their community.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend the information sessions which will be held across the country in June.

ACCELERATE is an intensive, fully-funded programme that includes leadership development, mentoring and industry placements in Australia and the UK, it offers outstanding applicants a unique opportunity to develop as leaders in their field.

ACCELERATE came about in response to the lack of representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in positions of influence within the creative sector and mainstream media. It aims to empower its alumni with the recognition, skills and networks to drive their own careers, both internationally and at home. Drawing on the UK's strong creative sector, it actively refreshes the cultural dialogue between the two nations and promotes international collaboration, skill sharing and network building.
