New Trustee Vacancies

Our current Trustees are delighted to request applications to join our Board to support us with our ambitious plans.

We are searching for new Trustees to help us deliver our new strategic plan and continue our work, supporting our community and delivering our dedicated artistic programme. 


We deeply understand the potential that creativity has for empowering and transforming communities.

In 2022 we won the Gulbenkian Civic Arts Award. The panel praised our ‘unswerving commitment to co-creation, developing skills and creativity with local communities, championing diverse voices and dissolving barriers between art and social impact’.

We punch way above our weight, delivering high-quality, value-for-money work that puts people and creativity at the centre of social change.

Our trustees play a big part in helping us keep our strategic promises and meet the needs of those we’re here to support. In this round of Trustee recruitment we are particularly looking for a Chair and Finance Lead.

We would like our board to be representative of the communities that we support, so encourage applications from people who are disabled, with experience of migration and/or who are from the global majority.

If you share our values and want to help our dedicated team to take on the next phase of our work then please download our Trustee Information Pack and get in touch.
