Become a board member for the Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries (iCCi)at the University of Kent. 

Voluntary Position.

Closing Date 20 February 2022.

iCCi is the creative force behind the cultural output of the University. Including the Gulbenkian Arts Centre and the annual bOing! International Family Festival, we are Kent’s new catalyst for culture and creativity; a distinctive model of skills acquisition and education built on innovative university research and a dynamic arts programme, and forging new partnerships with artists, practitioners and the creative industries.

We are an Arts Council England NPO, with a focus on delivering outstanding creative and leadership opportunities for children and young people in our communities in Kent and Medway, and over the coming years we have ambitious plans to grow and pilot new ways of working for Kent and for the wider university and creative sectors. We are particularly looking to grow our digital offering, collaborating with industry and university researchers.

To help us achieve this we are looking to bring together an advisory board that has the knowledge and drive to match our ambition, to challenge us and to guide us.

We are committed to ensuring that we work with and celebrate our richly diverse communities, and this starts with our board. Our aspiration is to draw together an inspirational group of people who are passionate about arts and inclusivity and who themselves reflect our diverse audiences.

In return, we provide an ambitious and exciting environment to which you can contribute: a distinctive opportunity to develop a unique organisation, to expand your networks across the region and within the cultural and creative industries, and to experience world class research and creative activity.

We hope you will be able to join us!
