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.
Our home in Bristol is one of Europe’s largest studio complexes. We are proud to host over 70 studio artists, over 35 creative businesses, over 160 Associates, and hundreds of MA/BA Fine Art students of UWE Bristol. Our community is built to support artists to develop their careers, gain new knowledge, and grow their networks.
The Board of Trustees are critical in setting and overseeing Spike Island’s mission, and work with the executive team to lead on and enact the vision for the organisation’s future.
You don’t have to have previous experience as a Board member or Trustee, and not all our Trustees are from an arts or culture background. What we do want are diverse, enthusiastic and committed applicants who believe in the fundamental value of arts and culture, and who are able to apply their particular skills and life experience to this dynamic organisation, with its broad business model that enables us to support, produce and present exceptional contemporary art.
