Glasgow Connected Arts Network



Board of Directors Opportunity

Glasgow Connected Arts Network CIC is seeking new members to join its Board of Directors.

The Glasgow CAN Board of Directors currently comprises of a committed group of experienced senior arts managers and a young person who represents the youth arts committee – The Bold Collective. This is a very exciting time for the company as the network is growing rapidly and we have recently secured Young Start funding to further develop our youth arts programme. We are therefore currently open to applications for new Directors.

Glasgow CAN is the city's go-to creative network for artists and organisations to connect, share practice, and access funding and training opportunities.  We are invested in encouraging and maintaining public engagement, awareness and understanding of participatory arts in Glasgow. We facilitate skills and resource sharing, and the exchange of ideas, offering our members access to invaluable training opportunties. We encourage collaboration and connection between artists and communities across Glasgow, and we regularly fund arts projects which seek to reach and engage new audiences. We aim to increase participation and learning in arts projects, to promote and advance the economic, social and cultural development of Glasgow, and reflect the diverse communities within it.

 In order to strengthen our Board we are looking for dynamic, innovative people with an interest/experience in the Arts who can support the development of the organisation. We are particularly interested in applications from:

People from a Finance, Governance, Human Resources or Legal background. We are also keen to improve the diversity of our board and particularly welcome applications from people who reflect the diverse nature of Scottish society, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with lived experience or professional experience of physical and/or learning disabilities. The Glasgow CAN Board of Directors currently meets twelve times a year in the city centre but the aim is to have working sub-groups that will focus on particular areas such as HR.

Deadline for applications is 2nd April 2018.
