The purpose of this study is to explore understandings of leadership and creativity and how they are seen to connect in particular arts organisations located in Adelaide. Creativity and artistic practice are generally agreed as being at the core of an arts organisation's mission. The subjects of the study are arts organisations in receipt of government subsidy. Given changes to the environment for subsidised arts organisations, particularly over the past decade, the study explores the possible impact of differing expectations of the leadership role of arts organisations and the possible impact on the organisation's creativity.
