This is a “Provocation Paper” written for the Clore Leadership Programme Fellowship 2016/17. The paper introduces the ideas of “slow” to recruitment, participation, partnership and leadership with suggestions for practical implementation, and examines these ideas within the sector of arts and culture. It advocates that people need time to do their best work, be they practitioner, participant, arts worker or leader, and that “slow” can be a useful tool in the leadership toolkit.
