Phoenix Art Space is looking to appoint a new Chair of the Board of Trustees to support the organisation through its next phase of development.

We are a charitable (not-for-profit) arts organisation based in the heart of the City of Brighton & Hove, and the largest provider of professional artist’s studio space in the South East region. We provide 100+ studio spaces, short-term project space for hire, a rolling gallery programme, education programme and a café which bring together professional artists and the general public in a friendly and creative environment.

Phoenix Art Space is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from all members of the community, especially those that are currently under-represented within cultural organisations (including people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds and people who identify as coming from marginalised communities).

We welcome applications from individuals experienced in governance – either as an employee, volunteer or experienced as a Chair and with the commitment, qualities and attributes to effectively lead our organisation and shape the future of Phoenix Art Space. Our Board and team is predominately white, cisgender and non-disabled. We know there are barriers to joining Boards of Trustees. We believe that what we will have a greater impact when our charity reflects the city in which we work, and we fully welcome applications from those who will bring a different voice to the team.

Purpose of Role
• To lead and direct the Board and the organisation through an exciting period of change & development
• To ensure the Trustees fulfil their duties and responsibilities for the proper governance of Phoenix Art Space
• To ensure that Phoenix Art Space complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and other relevant regulations
