GRAFT is looking for 2 new members to join our board of trustees!

GRAFT Lancaster CIC is a community arts organisation established in 2017. We are committed to supporting artists in the early stages of their career, providing opportunities towards professional development, and creating meaningful connections with the Lancaster community. We believe that art is for everyone. This is reflected in our exciting programme of exhibitions, workshops, talks and interventions as we bring contemporary art out of traditional gallery spaces and into the public realm increasing accessibility for all.

Our board of trustees have a say in everything we do, from planning and delivering our exciting programme to shaping our organisation into the future. They are crucial to steering our activities; making sure we meet our mission and aims as an organisation; and helping us to achieve organisational growth.

Our trustees support us to: 

  • Increase the ambition and creativity of our programme;
  • Achieve our goals towards organisational development;
  • Support the management and operational aspects of GRAFT.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to GRAFT’s vision, helping us raise the ambition of what we do, and to get involved with all of our activities towards supporting artists and connecting with wider audiences. 

(Please note, this is a voluntary role and trustees will not be paid.)
