Barbican Centre Board - External Members

We are  one of the world’s leading arts and education organisations, welcoming over a million visitors and hundreds of artists every year. We are both a civic space for our communities and a multi-platform venue showcasing the best artists, musicians, directors and actors to global audiences.

We're committed to identifying new talent, nurturing emerging artists and supporting innovative work that reflects and responds to today’s world; it is a place that invites fresh perspectives and provokes conversations, inspired by local and international talent. As a not-for-profit arts centre, we are committed to offering the widest possible access to culture, giving everyone the opportunity to encounter and enjoy creativity.

We are investing in the future of our people and our communities, through a radical programme for change, called Barbican Transformation. This programme will bring together three parallel strands of activity, all of which have organisational transformation at their heart. Barbican Renewal will see a reimagining of our physical buildings, our dynamic EDI programme will deliver lasting cultural change, and the new Creative Vision will lead to a more inclusive, equitable and all-encompassing artistic programme for the centre going forward.

The Barbican Centre Board are now looking for two new external members to join the Board and help shape the Barbican Centre at this extraordinary time of investment and transformation. The Barbican Centre Board is the governing body of the Barbican Centre, working within the framework of the City of London Corporation who are the principal funder of the Barbican Centre.

One of our new members will have a background in arts administration, the other as an artist practitioner. Both members will play a critical part in creating the future strategic direction of the Centre, and will contribute by bringing their expertise, network, and sound guidance to the Board. Our new members will be a support to the executive, and an ambassador for the Centre, and will be dynamic, visionary, and totally committed to diversifying, empowering, and developing those who work with us.
