Do you want to help shape the future of the arts?
Do you want to support a dynamic, vital arts organisation bursting with opportunities but facing enormous challenges?
Project Arts Centre, Ireland’s leading centre for contemporary arts is searching for two new Directors to join our Board.
Project Arts Centre wishes to appoint new people to our Board of Directors. We are looking for people who are committed to a belief in the power of arts and culture to change the world. People who have the capacity to support our brilliant team to deliver a dynamic programme of events across artforms at our purpose-built centre in the heart of Dublin and in venues across Ireland and the world. People who want to put the arts at the centre of conversations about the kind of world we want to live in.
In 2020, we are thinking about who gets access to cultural and creative spaces. What happens to an artistic programme when no rules apply? How does an arts centre inform the art it nurtures and presents and how does that art, in turn, impact the development of the centre? What questions are artists asking and how can an organisation like Project help artists explore potential answers?
At a time when we are developing a new strategic vision 2021-2025 and planning for the future of the organisation, Project is looking for exceptional individuals to join our Board of Directors.
We welcome applications from people with the following skills and/or working in the following areas:
· Stakeholder relations – particularly government & local authority
· Artists – particularly those working in the areas of visual art, performance, music, dance and architecture
Board Members of Project Arts Centre serve a 3-year term, renewable to a maximum of 8 years. Project Arts Centre is a registered charity, and this is a voluntary, unpaid position.
The Board of Directors meets six times per year plus the AGM. There are sub-committees, meetings of the Company’s Membership and Board members are expected to contribute to the ongoing development of the organisation and attend additional events where possible.
To apply we ask applicants to submit a comprehensive CV or biography (a statement outlining your roles, responsibilities and achievements in the organisations in which you currently and previously worked). Please include details of any service as a Board Director, Trustee or any other voluntary/community work.
Project welcomes applications from everyone but would like to encourage applications by people from a diversity of national, ethnic or cultural groups (including, but not limited to, Asian, Black, Traveller and minority ethnic, refugees, people with disabilities, working-class and LGBTQI+ people). Applications are also welcome from those based outside of Ireland.
For a confidential conversation please contact Project’s Artistic Director, Cian O’Brien by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
