Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) seeks charity trustees/non-executive directors
As we emerge from an extraordinary year, Iniva is seeking new trustees to join our Board to support the organisation’s growth, and help realise our ambitious vision to transform the cultural landscape with artists and creative communities.
With the unique Stuart Hall Library and Archive at its heart, for more than 25 years, Iniva has been at the vanguard of cultural practice, promoting the work of artists, writers and curators who have been pivotal in exploring anti-colonial narratives and foregrounding diverse, hybrid cultural perspectives. We are now embarking on a series of exciting projects, with new staff and funding, informed by research and conversations between creative practitioners and the intergenerational and international communities we serve.
As part of this programme, we are seeking new board members who will help strengthen and sustain the organisation.
Do you have a passionate belief in the essential role of art to address social justice and inequity and create lasting change – through practice, research, education and collaboration?
Do you bring expertise in any of the following areas: income generation and knowledge from the commercial sector; digital communications across platforms; libraries & archives; engaging and working with young people?
If you bring experience and a commitment to work with us to achieve our goals for current and future generations, we would like to hear from you.
About the roles
As part of the role Trustees are expected to:
· Engage in and support the artistic endeavours of the organisation
· Advocate for Iniva’s vision and programme
· Oversee the charity’s organisational development, financial operations, future strategy, and delivery of objectives.
· Offer strategic advice and practical assistance in relation to particular projects or the organisation as a whole;
· Ensure that the charity meets its legal obligations; and
· Ensure that the work of staff provides and sustains high quality services to its beneficiaries and stakeholders.
The Board of Iniva meets six half days per year. Trustees may also be invited to participate in sub-committees or working groups that meet in-between Board meetings as required.
