The National Campaign for the Arts are on the look-out for new trustees to join our board and support our campaign for public arts funding in the UK. 

We are a small, proactive board. Currently, all of our activity and campaigning is managed by us, with assistance from a part-time administrator. You will play a busy, hands-on role in our work and the success of our campaigns.

We campaign for more public funding and investment in the arts because life is better when it is surrounded by arts and culture. We are not complaining nay-sayers, we are positively For The Arts. We believe that the arts benefit everyone, that they are socially and economically valuable and that they require long term investment to survive and grow. We want to empower the public to champion the arts, to build such a loud collective voice that the logical case for sustainable public investment cannot be ignored.

We want people who can bring one or more of the following:

  • specialist skills and experience that enhance our team. We are particularly looking for people with expertise in any of the following areas: event production; digital communications; education and training; human resources; press and public relations.
  • Professional connections that will open doors and make action easier
  • In-kind support or funding that we can invest to expand our reach
  • Recognisable status as an arts practitioner that will bring fresh perspective
  • We are keen that our board is representative of the society that we speak to and on behalf of. We welcome and encourage applications from all backgrounds, especially young people and those who are traditionally less well represented.

What we expect of our trustees:

  • To attend board meetings – every other month, usually in central London, in person or via video link. You will be expected to read and contribute to board papers and minutes ahead of each meeting. The meetings are participatory: we want you to bring perspective and experience to our collective decisions.
  • To be active between meetings – we are a ‘doing’ board. Each trustee is expected take on tasks and activities at meetings, and to actively pursue them in collaboration with the rest of the board.
  • To provide content – we expect all board members to contribute to newsletters, write pieces for our website, and enhance our social media feeds.
  • To bring individual skills – beyond the above, each trustee’s further contribution is likely to depend on their experiences, skills and areas of interest. We expect all trustees to be an asset to the collective: enthusiastic, open and collaborative in a way that will achieve results
