Bluecoat seeks new board members with an arts background.

Celebrating Bluecoat’s 300th anniversary in 2017 has been a catalyst to refresh our purpose as a space for artists, audiences and participants in the arts. As the UK’s first arts centre we are using the occasion to reflect, to plan for the future and to develop new ways to ensure everything we do is both relevant to our times and excellent in content and execution.   

The most significant shift in our work from 2018 will be a sharper focus on artists’ practice. Our ambition is to develop an artists’ hub for the North, underpinned by local talent development and linked to national and international opportunities. 

An engaged and expert board with an in-depth knowledge of the arts alongside national and international networks is essential to help us make this shift.
