Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival
Trustee (multiple roles)
Renowned for its pioneering spirit and experimental reputation for more than 50 years, Brighton Festival has become one of the city’s most enduring symbols of inventiveness. Since 2009 it has welcomed a major cultural figure to guest curate and enhance the prestige of the artistic programme. Anish Kapoor, Brian Eno, Vanessa Redgrave, Michael Rosen, Hofesh Shechter, Ali Smith, Laurie Anderson, Kate Tempest and David Shrigley are just a few of the people who have contributed.
As custodians of the Grade I and Grade II listed Brighton Dome, which is part of the iconic Royal Pavilion Estate, the organisation presents a rich and varied programme throughout the year, spanning music, theatre, dance, comedy, literature, spoken word, visual arts, film, digital, community and participatory events, as well as operating a thriving music & arts education service for the city’s children and young people.
As a trustee, working in close partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council and Arts Council England, your innate ambition and instinctive pragmatism will help our small and committed team navigate and strengthen our extensive network of partnerships, develop our commercial and philanthropic income streams and establish the organisation as an internationally significant destination for artists and audiences.
We’re eager to hear from interested individuals with a broad range of backgrounds and expertise, and would encourage anyone who feels they can bring value to the board to apply. We believe that greater diversity of skills, approaches, background and lived experience on the Board and in our staff will help us deliver on our purpose and enrich and strengthen our decision making. There are some areas of opportunity for Brighton Dome and Festival that could be addressed with individuals with the following skills sets.
- Commercial or revenue generation expertise in the arts or events sector
- Legal expertise
- Finance expertise
- Change management expertise
