The future is exciting for iCCi, with our new Docking Station due to open in 2025/26. We are currently looking for board members to help shape and support this future.

Launched in 2021, the Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries (iCCi) is the University of Kent’s 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. In 2025/6 we will open Docking Station, a £15M regeneration project will deliver a world-leading centre of creative digital production, education and community engagement in Medway.

iCCi is also the creative force behind the cultural output of the University, including the Gulbenkian Arts Centre and the annual bOing! International Family Festival. 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.

In 2024, we are looking to add new voices to our Advisory Board to help drive our ambitious plans, challenging and guiding us. We welcome all voices, but are particularly interested in adding artists, and professionals with expertise in working with Children and Young People, in digital delivery and in communications.

We are building a board who are are passionate about arts and inclusivity and who themselves reflect our diverse audiences, and so we welcome applications from across all our communities.

These are voluntary positions and 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.
