We are Art B&B CIC – a community interest company (social enterprise) that has been established to renovate a traditional Blackpool seafront hotel through commissioning artists. We are creating a new business model where the profits of the fully operational hotel are re-invested into creative and community projects including a creative training and development programme for local people and artists regionally and nationally.

Please have a look at our recruitment pack for full information here: https://www.leftcoast.org.uk/artbandbboard/

We have secured the property, planning permission and substantial public funds and are approaching the completion of the capital redevelopment of the building. Art B&B has grown out of LeftCoast www.leftcoast.org.uk – an innovative arts and cultural organisation creating and delivering great art and talent development across Blackpool and Wyre on the sunny North-West coast of England.

We are looking for smart, friendly, creative people to join the board of Art B&B and support its development to become a thriving, successful and dynamic business which supports an equally innovative art commissioning, training and community engagement programme.

We are looking to supplement the board with people with skills in the following areas in particular:
• Legal and business structures
• Operations and management in the hospitality/arts/events sector.
• Fundraising and sustainable business strategies
• Marketing and communications

We are seeking individuals with ideas, energy and expertise to help us take this forward – it is your chance to be part of the formidable story of the Blackpool Landlady!
