Become a Trustee

We are looking to increase the size of our Board, to bring additional skills, knowledge and connections and further innovation and fresh thinking to the team who have helped it prosper so far.

Trustees provide the oversight and governance for the charity which includes a 70+ artists studio complex; part-time staff team; grants including from MK Community Foundation, MK Council, Arts Council England.

Following a recent skills audit, we are particularly looking for people who can help AGMK with specific skills and knowledge in:

  • Marketing and communications, including the use of digital media;
  • Programming or producing in any art form

We want the Board to have a wider representation of the diversity of our city, and a somewhat younger age profile. We are particularly interested in hearing from people of colour and individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community as well as professionals in the early stages of their careers. You do not need prior Trustee experience.

The Board holds monthly meetings and Trustees take part in task-and-finish working groups when specific issues arise that need more intensive consideration.

For further details as well as role description and person specification, please see the accompanying attachments.
