Arts North West | Expressions of Interest for Board Members15.01.2018
Arts North West facilitates the development of arts and cultural projects and initiatives across the whole region, building a rich cultural landscape in the New England North West and increasing participation in arts and cultural activities. The organisation plays a vital role in building cultural community capacity, through advice and advocacy, through substantial professional development provision and with the forging of key partnerships and networks throughout the region.
Following a comprehensive review, Arts North West is updating its Governance structure and moving to a skill-based board.
