Join Arts Bridge

 
 

Chair

We are looking for someone to lead our board of trustees and help us deliver community and in-school projects which make the arts accessible to those at risk of being excluded from it. Our vision is of a world where people of all ages, abilities, culture and classes have the opportunity to experience the arts and we are looking for someone to champion this ethos.

The Chair will act as an ambassador and the public face of the charity and provide inclusive leadership to the Arts Bridge Charity Board of Trustees. They will work with the Founder & Director Amanda Wright to support the strategic development of Arts Bridge Charity at a very exciting time of company growth.

A successful candidate will have experience of working in one or more of the following: the creative industries; heritage; fundraising; business; governance; education; and strategic management sectors.
