Become a regional council member at Arts Council England

  • Date: 6 October 2009
  • Area: National

If you’ve ever wanted to play an active role in bringing arts to your community, this is your chance. 

Our nine regional councils, which report to our national Council, are helping us work towards achieving great art for everyone by providing advice on art policy and by making important funding decisions.

These are voluntary roles where you’ll be asked to champion the arts among your networks and think strategically about the arts ecology and funding.

You’ll need a demonstrable interest in the arts, a commitment to our mission and knowledge of your region.  We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have experience in disability arts or with a disability.

Council membership can last up to three years, with the possibility of reappointment.

You’ll attend up to five meetings a year, an annual away day and various events.
