In December 2016, David Rudlin stepped down as Chair of Beam and we thank him for 8 years of dedicated support!
We are delighted to welcome Sharon Gill as Beams’ new Chair of Trustees.
Sharon is the Chief Executive for Rotherham Open Arts Renaissance (ROAR) and brings with her a wealth of experience from her background in Arts for Health, event and project management as well as a passion for the difference that the arts can make to individuals and communities.
“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to work with the talented team at Beam, and would like to thank the Directors who have navigated through some choppy waters to hand over an organisation with an exciting future.The definition of Public Art and the social expectations of its evolving role in our communal spaces, on and from the artist creator, the participant, audience and the commissioning stakeholders, presents real challenges and the potential for ground breaking achievements where Beam can bring its 30 years of experience of creative place-making to keep art relevant and exciting in all our redefined communities.
We are ambitious about the future and will be seeking new partners and new challenges to share our passions and visions of beautiful public spaces that will bring joy and as yet unrealised benefits to everyone who experiences them.”
Sharon Gill, Chair of Beam Trustees
