The Ken Stradling Collection Trust is seeking a new Chair and additional Trustees to help it shape its vision for the future. We are seeking people who have an appetite for volunteering their skills and experience to contribute to developing a new, sustainable business model.

We are looking to the future, with ambitious plans to re-invigorate our offer – particularly focusing on sharing the collection with wider audiences; providing more creative learning opportunities for children, young people and students; considering the future needs of the building and storage of the collection and forming partnerships with other arts organisations and academic institutions.

For plans to develop, the organisation needs further skills on its board of Trustees. The Trustees want to stimulate new ideas for the future, specifically to ensure financial sustainability; greater visibility; and a professional staff structure to enable growth and high-quality exhibitions, creative learning programmes and community outreach projects.
