b-side is inviting applications for the post of Chair of the Board; a non-executive role working with a loyal and hardworking creative team of board members and staff in a stunning part of the UK, the gorgeous Isle of Portland in Dorset.
After 6 successful years as b-side’s dedicated Chair of the Board, John Tizard is stepping down. John has led a brilliant and diverse team of non-executive directors, most recently in the successful recruitment of our Director Rocca Holly-Nambi and in the revitalisation of b-side’s governance structure, enabling us to remain true to our cooperative and collaborative values and vision.
Our next Chair of the Board will continue to support the development of b-side’s outward-looking creative programme and our artist commissioning process; celebrating the local and the international and everywhere in between.
The new Chair of b-side will be joining at a pivotal moment as we head towards our next Arts Council National Portfolio Application in 2022 and at the same time will take a lead role in supporting us to find creative strategies to diversify our income and networks.
The new Chair will be someone for whom inclusivity, internationalism, and sensitivity to our host community on the Isle of Portland are paramount and they should share our genuine love of site-responsive art-making, championing b-side to create projects that explore, celebrate and challenge everyone’s relationship to place; socially, historically and environmentally.
We are looking for someone who will lead a team of board members to continue to build a financially and environmentally sustainable arts organisation ensuring good governance and financial management alongside upholding our creative vision and mission.
