Help Shape Artlift’s Future

by | Feb 16, 2023 | News

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people struggling with their mental and/or physical health? Then why not join, or even lead, our Board of Trustees? Bring your invaluable skills, expertise and/or lived experience to take this pioneering Creative Health charity into the next phase of its development.

We are looking for a new Chair of the Board as respected Creative Health advocate Dr Gillian Rice is due to step down in May 2023.

We also aim to strengthen the Board by bringing new, diverse voices to the table. We would hugely welcome applications from potential Trustees who address gaps on our Board, in particular professionals at any stage of their career who have:

  • experience and awareness as a person from a minority / marginalised community
  • experience of Chairing Boards or networks.
  • financial, income generation and/or marketing expertise
  • career experience and networks in the visual and/or performing arts
  • experience from a career in primary care

Artlift welcomes applications from all sectors of society including those who do not have prior experience of being a Trustee. We will provide full induction and ongoing training and mentoring for those new to the role.
You will be joining and supported by a small, dedicated Board who have worked across the health, charity, corporate, and cultural sectors.

Artlift Trustees attend 4 Board meetings per annum, some taking on additional responsibility such as becoming a lead contact for Safeguarding. Some also join co-production groups to work alongside experts by experience, artists, key stakeholders, and clinicians to develop and hone Artlift’s programmes and services. Occasionally, sub-committees and working parties are established to push forwards specific areas of work.
