Gráinne Hope, Artistic Director of Kids’ Classics, has been awarded a Wellcome Trust Fellowship to take part in the Clore Cultural Leadership programme 2018/2019. Kids’ Classics provides music-making opportunities in healthcare, education and community settings.

The Clore Fellowship is a unique programme of cultural leadership development that seeks to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement. Each year, fellowships are awarded to exceptional leaders from a range of specialisms across the cultural sector including the visual and performing arts, film and digital media, museums, libraries, archives and heritage, cultural policy and practice. The Fellowship provides a number of core activities and a loose framework to support individual development as a cultural leader over a period of around seven months.

The Clore Leadership Programme has awarded Clore Fellowships for 2018/19 to 24 change-makers. Gráinne is one of two Irish Fellows in a group of UK and International Fellows.

Gráinne Hope is a professional cellist and the Founder and Artistic Director of Kids’ Classics, which delivers a music programme in Ireland’s children’s hospitals. She was chosen to represent Ireland to become a trainer of Musicians in Healthcare Settings as part of a pioneering European programme lead by Musique et Santé (France). As a Music Education Facilitator she works with the Education Community and Outreach Programme of the National Concert Hall, Dublin. www.kidsclassics.ie
