The Future Leaders Podcast: Episode 1: The Leader


Episode 1: The Leader

Do you want to know what the future generation thinks about leaders?

In this first episode, we engage in conversations with children between five and 12 years old about leaders and leadership. These conversations are ignited by artworks created by the children after they were asked to ‘draw a leader leading’.

Don’t miss the online art gallery below. It features the children’s drawings and gives you the chance to travel into their visual and spoken narratives. As you view the drawings, watch out for the orange stickers: these mean that the child has identified that character as the leader.

Stay tuned for Episodes 2 and 3 and learn more about The Future Leaders Podcast.

The Future Leaders Podcast is presented by FUSE Darebin and features children from Reservoir Views Primary School.

Produced by Dr Claudia Escobar Vega and Jorge Leiva.

Music by Jorge Leiva in collaboration with children from Reservoir Views Primary School.
Edited by Emma Peel.
