About the ACCELERATE Alumni
Since 2009, ACCELERATE has developed an alumni of 29 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts leaders across the creative disciplines including: music, theatre, fashion, design, literature, writing, visual arts and dance. Alumni from the programme have gone on to excel in their fields and are in leading institutions from the National Gallery Australia to the Blak & Bright Festival, as well as regional communities and international showcases.

Thanks to investment from the Australia Council for the Arts, in 2016 the British Council will not only deliver the annual ACCELERATE Leadership Development and UK programme, but also an expanded suite of activities to support the alumni network and showcase work on an international scale.
Alumni will curate an international gathering of First Nations leaders in arts and culture in July 2016, and will have the opportunity to come together at a national leadership development intensive in August, as well as apply for an International Collaboration Fund for new creative projects with connections in the UK.
