Board Member/Trustee, New Light (North of England)

Established in 2010, New Light is a charity that celebrates and promotes Northern art, supporting both well-known and emerging artists by offering some of the region’s best awards and opportunities with the biennial New Light Prize Exhibition, which tours across renowned venues in the North and London.

In a bid to make contemporary art more accessible, we also run New Light Art for All – an education programme which includes talks, workshops and school projects. Through the New Light Collection, we aim to make the best in Northern visual arts available to more people, by loaning pieces from the Collection free of charge to public bodies and charities. This results in more people experiencing the thrill of having art of the highest quality displayed on their walls.

The common thread through all we do is a deep belief that the visual arts matter and the North of England deserves to be celebrated.

As we approach our tenth birthday, we are looking to expand our founding team and bring ‘on board’ new Trustees with new ideas, who can help shape our future.
