Bluecoat, Board Members
Bluecoat seeks new board members with an arts background.

Bluecoat is Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts, offering a year-round programme of exhibitions and a range of music, dance, literature, live art and heritage events.  As conservators of a rich history and ornate building, 300 years old this year, we are also home to around thirty artists, collectives, small arts organisations and craftspeople.

Our building’s 300th anniversary in 2017 has been a catalyst to refresh our purpose as a space for artists, audiences and participants in the arts. As the UK’s first arts centre we are using this occasion to reflect, to plan for the future and to develop new ways to ensure everything we do is both relevant to our times and excellent in content and execution.

The most significant shift in our work from 2018 will be a sharper focus on artists’ practice. Our ambition is to develop an artists’ hub for the North, underpinned by local talent development and linked to national and international opportunities. 

An engaged and expert board with an in-depth knowledge of the arts alongside national and international networks is essential to help us make this shift. Accordingly we are seeking new board members with an arts background to support us in fulfilling this ambition.
