This Masterclass looks at both the practical tasks and theoretical concepts around leadership, focusing on the particular issues that face museums today.
Facilitated by Lesley Alway, Lesley's extensive experience in leadership roles including Managing Director, Sotheby's, Australia, Director of Heide Museum of Modern Art and Director of Arts Victoria, will help shape a unique learning experience for all delegates.

The Städel Museum is the oldest civil foundation in Germany and its permanent collection is on loan while construction work takes place. Works by French, Belgian, Dutch and Swiss masters are included in this exhibition at NGV International with iconic Neo-Classical, Realist, Impressionist and Symbolist works, through to German Expressionist paintings and sculpture including ten works by Max Beckmann.
