New Brewery Arts is a unique organisation dedicated to increasing engagement and appreciation of craft, through an artistic programme of exhibitions, learning and onsite makers supported by a trading arm comprising retail, cafe and accommodation.

The organisation occupies a key place in Cirencester and the region's cultural identity.

New Brewery Arts is now seeking exceptional candidates to join our Board of trustees. Our trustees support strong governance and help set the strategic direction for the organisation for the coming years. This is also an ambassadorial role and trustees are advocates for New Brewery Arts and play a full part in every aspect of the organisation.

Candidates will bring energy, strong leadership and communication skills, as well as passion for the visual arts and, ideally with a strong interest in Craft.

Trustees are unpaid and work with New Brewery Arts in a voluntary capacity.

To learn more about the organisation and this role, or for an informal preliminary discussion, please contact Colin Forbes, Chair of Trustees, at
