Chair / Co-Chairs, Visual Arts South West

Visual Arts South West (VASW) is seeking a new Chair / Co-Chairs to support this vital network, in collaboration with the Steering Group and staff, in the next major phase of its development.

Do you have strategic leadership experience of working within the visual arts sector, from within organisations/institutions and/or with artists? Are you actively engaged in the South West’s Visual Arts sector and want to see it thrive? Are you interested in working on a national scale to support the visual arts sector and represent the South West region? 

Then you may be just the person we are looking for to join the VASW Steering Group and help us deliver our Mission, which is to advocate, challenge, and enable the visual arts to thrive in the South West.

Visual Arts South West is looking for a new Chair / Co-Chairs to help strategic development and lead the work of the staff and sector within the region forward. 

Applications are open to individuals, individuals interested in Co-Chairing, and pairs who would like to Co-Chair together. 

Visual Arts South West has been examining its process of recruitment and is committed to addressing barriers to visual arts participation caused by structures of discrimination, which we recognise to be intersectional. We are actively recruiting a Chair or Co-Chairs who want to join and support our work in changing the culture of boards and organisations in the region, as well as the wider sector.
