The Hepworth Wakefield has welcomed over 2.5 million visitors since opening in May 2011 and is now established as one of the most successful public art galleries in the UK, attracting critical acclaim and audiences from around the world. It is an exciting time to join the board, as the Hepworth enters their second decade. They are embarking upon a number of capital projects to complete the waterfront site and shaping their partnership with Tileyard North. The art collection continues to grow through gifts and grants and significant investments from Arts Council England and Wakefield Council have been secured through to 2026. Our strategic priorities focus on audience engagement, artistic excellence, and environmental and financial sustainability and are underpinned by a robust business plan that will ensure our long-term success and financial security.
The Hepworth are looking for several trustees to join the Board and share their entrepreneurial skills and experience to help develop and build on its achievements as a significant, ambitious, valued and resilient organisation. Trustees must be able to assist with fundraising and networking, including a willingness to make connections and host events on the organisations behalf. Areas of expertise of particular interest in include commercial business, learning, legal and those with experience of operating a garden as part of a visitor attraction. They are also seeking a finance professional (chartered accountant) to join the Board as a Trustee. However, they also welcome interest from those who do not fall within these categories.
Application deadline: Monday 3rd April
