Wysing has enjoyed a period of sustained growth over the past ten years: delivering capital and infrastructure improvements; securing inclusion into Arts Council England’s National Portfolio; and establishing strong partnerships including with the Plus Tate network.
With an experienced staff team in place and a strong board behind it, the organisation is seeking to appoint two new Trustees with skills in either broadcasting and digital innovation, individual giving or commercial revenue generation, to strengthen the board and move the organisation into its next phase.
Following the development of a new Business Plan 2018-22 a review of skill requirements for the Board of Trustees was carried out by the Chair. This identified a need for Trustees who have specialisms in one or more of the following areas:
- Digital innovation experience and radio/online broadcasting
- Fundraising experience, ideally with experience of helping organisations or Boards develop individual giving strategies
- Business/commercial strategy and experience, ideally in the area of maximising and generating revenue for a venue, site or arts organisation
We are seeking individuals who, though not necessarily visual arts specialists, are passionate about art and culture and who have these skills to ensure the successful implementation of the Business Plan to ensure Wysing continues to thrive as a progressive and inclusive arts organisation that develops new ways to support artists, and enables art and ideas to reach a wide range of people in unexpected ways.
Previous experience as a Trustee would be welcomed but is not necessary.
If you are interested in being a Trustee at Wysing and would like to approach us with a different skill which you think would augment our Board then please do get in touch.
