Are you passionate about arts in the public realm? We are seeking new trustees to strengthen the expertise of our board to help guide Beam’s work over the next few years.

Applications are invited from recent graduates with emerging careers in the arts, cultural or built environment sectors and individuals who have operated at a senior level within the public, private and voluntary sectors. Applicants will be required to attend approx. 5 board meetings per year (including a summer away day session) which will be a mix of virtual and face to face meetings, alongside other pieces of strategic work as agreed with the wider board.
