Creative Crawley Trustee

Creative Crawley exists to champion creative people and to create the best environment possible in Crawley for them to flourish. In partnership, we will develop the reputation of the town as a creative place beyond its boundaries.

Ultimately our goal is that each person in Crawley will have access to & agency in deciding what creative activities take place, each new economic development will have creativity at its heart and internationally renowned artists will live, work & play in Crawley making it a place that is celebrated as a tolerant, vibrant & creative place.

We are seeking new Trustees who can help us achieve our vision.

We’re looking for people with experience in financial management, human resources and artistic leadership (specifically arts venue leadership). Local knowledge is desirable but not essential as current Trustees all live or work in Crawley.

We need people who are willing to get their hands dirty and support our Creative Director in raising the profile of, raising funds for and developing strategic partnerships with Creative Crawley.

We’d like to meet people who believe in the power of arts and culture but don’t necessarily work in the sector. People who are fun to work with, understand the different communities in Crawley but has a national and international outlook. Someone who is not doing it for the kudos but who has a real interest in making positive change in the town.

This is a voluntary position. We will meet quarterly in Crawley or online. Each meeting is about 2 hours long. In between meetings, the Trustees are expected to attend events and meetings, read and contribute to board papers and advocate for the company. We estimate the commitment is approximately one day per month.

We want to ensure our Trustees represent the diversity of Crawley in terms of age, gender, ethnicity and ability. Trustees can be aged 18+

There is a rolling deadline for this position and we are hoping that up to four new board members will join us by April 2024.
