Charity Trustees

BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is a major international centre for contemporary art located on the South bank of the River Tyne at the foot of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, in Gateshead in the North East of England. It presents a constantly changing, distinctive and ambitious programme of exhibitions and events, and is a world leader in the presentation, commissioning and communication of contemporary visual art.

The Trust wants to strengthen and diversify its Board-level governance with the appointment of a number of new charity trustees with a wide range of skills and experience.

The Trust is looking for individuals who have the skills and interests to help us identify and exploit new opportunities, as well as the ability to support the Director and senior management team to take BALTIC to the next stage of its development.

If you would relish such a challenge and share our commitment to building BALTIC’s contribution as a sustainable artistic, economic and social force for good on a local, national and international stage, particularly in challenging economic times, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

The roles are unpaid, although reasonable expenses are reimbursed.
