Trustee Recruitment

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. 

Wysing is committed to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and we have a dedicated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy and action plan within our current Business Plan 2018-22. The action plan sets out measurable actions for us in areas such as our programme, audience, staffing and governance.

As part of our work in this direction, we would like to ensure that new Trustees bring diverse perspectives and experiences to the organisation. We are particularly keen to recruit a Trustee who has lived experience of being a neurodivergent or disabled person.

Wysing actively seeks to give a platform to voices that are perceived to be marginalised or under-represented. We are a Disability Confident accredited employer, have invested in Mental Health Awareness and training, and have implemented a range of development, including Unconscious Bias training, within our staff team.

As an organisation that is seeking to support artists, audiences and staff from all backgrounds we would welcome applications from all sections of the community. We are seeking individuals who are passionate about art and culture, but you do not have to be a visual arts specialist.

Skills around organisational accessibility or inclusion, capital development, commercial income generation or compliance are welcomed, but not essential. We seek individuals with skills to support the successful implementation of the Business Plan, ensuring Wysing continues to thrive as a progressive and inclusive arts organisation and develops new ways to support artists and enable art and ideas to reach people in unexpected ways.

Previous experience as a Trustee would be welcomed but is not necessary. We are happy to discuss training needs, and it may be possible for a current Trustee to be a buddy or more formal mentor, if needed. 

If you are interested in being a Trustee at Wysing and would like to approach us with a different skill or experience which you think would augment our Board then please do get in touch by emailing ceri.littlechild@wysingartscentre.org.
