Join Studio Voltaire’s Board of Trustees

As one of the UK’s leading not–for–profit arts organisations, Studio Voltaire plays a unique role in the UK arts ecology by supporting diverse artistic talent to take risks and realise ambition. We have developed ambitious programmes that support a diversity of contemporary art practice, encouraging access and participation from a wide range of audiences. 

Studio Voltaire has just reopened following a transformative £2.8 million capital project to create more artists’ studios, renovated exhibition space and new public spaces, including a dedicated learning and events space, public garden, café and shop. This is the most ambitious transition in our 27–year history.  

Over the next year, we are looking to appoint a number of new Trustees who will bring a commitment to the organisation’s mission and values, and complement the range of skills and experience of our Board.

Trustees support and help develop a charity’s work by playing important and varied roles, including: supporting Studio Voltaire’s team; giving advice; acting as a critical friend; providing strategic leadership; and advocating for Studio Voltaire through the next stage of our development.
