Board member, The Architecture Centre

The Architecture Centre, Bristol, is seeking to appoint two new Trustees to its Board.

The Centre’s mission is to encourage the understanding and enjoyment of architecture, and to champion better buildings and places for everyone. They believe that by increasing the awareness of both public and professionals they will raise expectations and provide both opportunities and demand for a better built environment.

The Architecture Centre is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. Based on Bristol’s Harbourside, the Centre runs a highly regarded programme of exhibitions, events, advocacy, learning and outreach work designed to inspire, inform and involve diverse audiences. For more information see:

Pursuing their mission has never been more important. This is an exciting time to be joining the Board, as the Centre engages with opportunities offered by Bristol’s status as European Green Capital in 2015 and the Centre’s own 20th anniversary in 2016.

They are keen to diversify Board membership and bring in a wider range of perspectives and experiences. They encourage applications from individuals with senior level experience who can bring enthusiasm, commitment and expertise to the role, and have access to extensive professional and personal networks. They would expect potential Trustees to have a strong interest in contemporary architecture and design and its value, and a commitment to the Centre’s aims and objectives.

While Trustees are appointed in their own right, they are particularly seeking applicants with expertise in one or more of the following areas:

Arts / cultural management
Built environment higher education
Arts / cultural funding

They particularly welcome applications from women and from diverse cultural backgrounds.
