The Albany is a vibrant, award-winning, performing arts venue based in the heart of Deptford. We exist to inspire, develop and support creativity for the benefit of our community. We are looking to appoint a Trustee to join our voluntary Board and are committed to recruiting someone who is or has experience as a practising artist and can demonstrate a lived experience of the diverse communities we serve, including, but not exclusive to people of African and Caribbean heritage.

We have recently introduced Artists of Change which aims to bridge the gap between venues, artists and residents to transform the traditional ‘top-down’ programming model. As well as radically reshaping what is presented, it also represents a step-change towards further democratising the way the Albany is run.

We will also be the Lead Delivery Partner with Lewisham Council for the London Borough of Culture 2022, which has the theme of Cultural Activism and a ‘cultural manifesto’ aiming to stimulate lasting change.

You would join the Albany as we embrace another key moment in our history and work together with our staff, artists and local communities to make a real difference both locally and in the wider cultural sector.

Deadline for applications: Monday 12 April.

Interviews are scheduled to take place via Zoom on Monday 26 April and will involve a panel of Trustees and staff.

Contact us if you require further assistance or the application in a different format.
