Call for Trustees
PITT studio CIC (Community Interest Company) is an arts organisation based in Worcester, UK. Our aim is to remove the barriers of participation within contemporary art outside of London, creating new opportunities for critically aware and socially engaged work.
We seek to champion artists from underrepresented communities and foster collaboration, debate and education in ways that benefit the public. We routinely work with other organisations, such as universities, charities and public galleries to undertake ambitious projects that allow art to reach new audiences. We rely on our trustees to provide us with guidance and ensure that we continue in our mission to diversify our audiences.
PITT studio are seeking 2 trustees who are committed to tackling inequalities within the arts sector. We are looking to add new members to the board so that it more accurately reflects the diversity of our audiences. Whilst a career within the arts is not mandatory for this role, applicants must be passionate about contemporary art and have an awareness of issues facing artists outside of London.
Trustees will be involved in governing the decision making of the organisation, helping to support our mission of providing new opportunities for artists.

Connecting to key members of staff or taking part in other meetings to support PITT Studio’s goals, including attending additional events or seasonal exhibition openings
