The recruitment of a new trustee comes at a time when both the Holburne and the University are committed to further deepening the relationship between the two institutions, a fact reflected in the Museum’s new management of the Andrew Brownsword Gallery at The Edge.
Prior to the pandemic, the Holburne Museum had been engaged in an exciting process of transformation under new leadership. Having come through the crisis of the last 18 months, the staff and board are committed to resuming that programme as we emerge from lockdown.
The Holburne’s vision is to make the Holburne an open, welcoming, inspiring and empowering space for everyone.
- At the heart of this vision is the powerful relationship of art, creativity and social and personal wellbeing.
- Their Vision is encapsulated by our slogan Changing Lives Through Art.
- They seek to deliver their Mission with Ambition and Innovation, ensuring that they always do so in ways that are Inclusive, of the highest Quality, Relevant and Sustainable.
In particular, the Museum aims to further deepen its engagement with local communities through a range of programmes targeted at particular areas of need while continuing to bring great art to Bath and to reinforce the organisation’s sustainability, resilience and impact.
Applications are welcomed from staff with an enthusiastic commitment to art and museums and to working with the Holburne specifically. Whilst previous non-executive experience is desirable it is not essential.
Trustees attend at least four meetings a year, join a relevant subcommittee and participate in key events. Appointments are for a 3-year term in the first instance.
The Museum is a registered charity and these positions are voluntary and unpaid.
The Holburne is committed to diversity in its programmes, audiences, staff and volunteers. If you would like to know more about this role please contact the chair of Trustees, Edward Bayntun-Coward at firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications is Sunday 12 December 2021.
