We are recruiting new trustees to join us on our next exciting chapter!

We are looking for new Trustees to join our team at Prism Arts.

We are particularly looking for forward thinkers with a diverse range of experiences, primarily passionate about inclusive arts and supporting equality of access.

We are seeking people who like people – and of course, the arts! We are looking for Trustees who have lived experience of disability/ diversity, who are passionate about their community and who want to make change, all with a focus on access and equality.

While we would love to hear about your qualifications, we are just as interested in seeing how you can demonstrate life skills or work experience in other areas. We want people who can apply their own skills, experience, and knowledge to current challenges and offer a different perspective.

Full training and support will be provided, and our friendly team will be on hand to help guide you through your term of service.

We particularly encourage applications from individuals who are historically under- represented on boards due to age, disability, ethnicity, faith or belief, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic background, or those with caring responsibilities.

Does this sound like you? For more information, please take a look at our job description and recruitment pack.
