Are you a passionate advocate for the power of creativity in North East Lincolnshire (NEL) – Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Immingham and the Wolds?

Could you bring local, regional or national expertise and knowledge to the role of Creativity Board Member?


There is huge potential for the development of creativity across NEL right now, with funding poised to provide a catalyst  for the growth of the arts, cultural, heritage and creative sectors. The Creativity Board will play a pivotal role, with the resources and scope to transform the area for this and future generations.

North East Lincolnshire Council is looking to establish a Creativity Board to support them in overseeing and championing this once-in-a-generation opportunity for creativity through the delivery of a recently developed Creativity Strategy. The aim is to  maximise the impact of culture, heritage and the arts in the strategic development of NEL for the next five years and beyond.

A Creativity Strategy for the area is emerging which will shape a new vision for culture, arts and heritage, in collaboration with stakeholders from across the area and from a broad range of backgrounds and sectors. The strategy has been  funded by North East Lincolnshire Council (NELC), Arts Council England (ACE) and the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) and is being developed by Beam. 

NB For those working within organisations this role is voluntary and unpaid, however in order to ensure diversity of the Board we are able to offer some limited financial contribution (see section 6 of role description) to enable freelancers or the unwaged to take a role on the Board.
