Empathy Museum seeks new Chair and Trustee with legal expertise
Empathy Museum makes high quality participatory artworks that foster a sense of empathy through the use of storytelling and conversation, with an ambition to heal division and promote understanding. We think this is especially important in the current polarised climate, with divisive populism and racism on the rise, alongside an increase in isolation and loneliness.
The artworks we make are modelled on different aspects of the high street(shoe shop, book shop, estate agents).They happen in public places, arefree to access, tour nationally and internationally and are created in collaboration with participants, artists and cultural partners.
We have a strong online presence through our podcast series and digital gallery. We are a company limited by guarantee. We’re also a charity. The core organisation is run day-to-day by a team of three, working part-time
Empathy Museum’s exhibits are conceived by Clare Patey, an award-winning artist and curator who devises participatory installations, performances and exhibitions. She also created the Museum Of, The Ministry of Trying to Do Something About It and Feast on the Bridge for the Thames Festival.
We are looking for a new Chair and two new Trustees.
