Trustees and Board Chair for the Association for Art History
The Association for Art History leads the collective effort in the UK to advance the study and professional practice of art history. Through our programmes, publications and resources we connect those engaged with art history, and we advocate on behalf of the subject, stressing its importance in a well-rounded education and influencing relevant policy.
Our current strategy outlines how we will strengthen the subject and support all those in the broad art history community including, among others, academics and students in the higher education sector, teachers in pre-university education, professionals in public and commercial galleries and those who have a personal interest in the subject.
The Association is governed by a committed board of eleven Trustees from various backgrounds and interests in art history. The full board meets four times per year, at our offices in central London. Board membership is on a voluntary basis with travel expenses to meetings and events reimbursed.
We would like to add Trustees and a Chair to our Board in the academic and curatorial fields.
The search for new Trustees will reflect the values of the organisation and be consistent with the aims of our Equality Diversity and Inclusion statement and action plan outline. We seek those who understand the challenges facing the arts and humanities and are committed to helping us reduce the barriers to engaging with our subject with regard to the range of protected characteristics and particularly those who face barriers as a result of class, race/ethnicity, gender or disability.
We invite applications from those with a variety of career stage, experience, personal characteristics or circumstance. To apply for a post on the board, please send a CV and a letter outlining your interest in the Association and the pertinent skills or experience you would bring to our work to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants interested in the Chair’s post should indicate that in their letter.
The deadline for applications is 30 April 2023.
If you are considering an application and have questions about the Board or the organisation please contact the CEO, Gregory Perry, on Gregory@forarthistory.org.uk. Contact with the Chair of the board can also be arranged.
