We are seeking people with the experience, knowledge and commitment to support our existing work. We embrace diversity and equal opportunity: we are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.

Whilst we don’t expect all Trustees to be expert in all areas of governance, we do need to ensure that collectively the Board is able to provide the Gallery Director and team with access to a range of knowledge, skills and experience to operate effectively.

Being a Trustee is a voluntary role, however your expenses will be covered in order to support your work on behalf of the gallery. The law dictates that Trustees must be 18 or over but young and first-time Trustees are very welcome. New Trustees will be offered training and support, including mentoring if appropriate.


We need Trustees who are passionate about the work of the gallery and we also want to increase representation on our Board by:

- People who are Black, Asian or from other diverse backgrounds
- Younger people (between 18 and 30)
- People who identify as Cornish
- People with a disability
- People who are LGBTQIA+
- Artists
- Curators
- Those with digital knowledge and expertise
- Knowledge of teaching and innovative educational practice in schools
- A commitment to supporting our work in response to the Climate Emergency
