Bury Metropolitan Arts Association seeks new Trustee – charity law / governance expertise sought
The Met is an innovative and rapidly growing organisation situated in the 2021 Greater Manchester Town of Culture, Bury. We are unique in the breadth of work we present and our ability to nurture artists and develop audiences. We present a mix of live music, theatre and comedy alongside a variety of hires in our beautiful Grade II 4.6 million refurbished building. We run community workshops, a recording studio and a creative business hub. Our restaurant, Automatic, welcomes in excess of 100,000 visitors per year.
Our work outside the building helps us to challenge and develop audience and artists. Since 2011 we have regularly presented a 3-day 5,000 capacity outdoor music festival and frequently collaborate on other specialist events and festivals at multiple sites in the town, as well as our own Beer Festival each November.
We are seeking trustees to join our board of directors in a number of areas including (but not restricted to)
- Charity law
- HR (specifically safeguarding)
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Arts Council’s Creative Case
- Those with a knowledge of the Bury Community
- Programming/artistic development
- Marketing and communications
If your skills are not covered above but you feel your skills would be an asset to the organisation, please feel free to get in touch for an informal conversation.
We are looking specifically to diversify our board. Those from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds are underrepresented in our organisation, so we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups. If your skills are not covered above but you feel your skills would be an asset to the organisation, please feel free to get in touch for an informal conversation.
We are passionate about the power of art to transform communities and society and our focus is to develop artists to ensure their success. We are seeking a trustee who will share our passion and commitment and have the knowledge and experience to support the organisation and its Executive.
