Spike Island is a dynamic arts centre that supports, produces and presents contemporary art and culture. We engage audiences in our work through a diverse programme of exhibitions and events; and we directly support artists and artist-led organisations through new commissions, subsidised studio provision and critically-engaged artist development opportunities that widen access to our programme and facilities.

Spike Island is looking for an exceptional individual to lead the organisation as Chair of the Board. The ideal candidate will already have charity experience as a Trustee/Company Director, a full understanding of the requirements required for good governance, financial acumen, excellent relationship building skills and a passion for the arts.

As Chair, you will work closely with the Executive Team and fellow Trustees to develop the business plan to ensure that Spike Island continues to thrive and that its reputation as a centre of artistic excellence receives regional, national and international recognition.
