Barbican Centre Trust - Trustees

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 Trust, the Barbican Centre’s charitable and fundraising arm, is now seeking exceptional candidates to join the Trust and work with the Chair and fellow Trustees to cultivate and grow our community of major supporters, corporate sponsors, and grant makers. The coming years will be exciting and transformational for the Barbican Centre, with a significant capital project on the horizon and a clear ambition to increase development activities more broadly.

The ideal candidates will demonstrate a passion for the arts and subscribe to the Barbican Centre’s mission to ‘inspire people to discover and love the arts. You will have exceptional relationship-building and communication skills, and experience of working at board level. Trustees will use their networks and expertise to help us unlock transformative opportunities, securing crucial income for the Centre’s work.
