Job Description

Kingsgate Workshops and Kingsgate Project Space has been an innovative and creative hub in North West London for forty years.

Home to thriving community of over 75 artists, craftspeople, makers and designers in 50 affordable studios, we also host a packed programme of contemporary exhibitions in our Project Space and support emerging artists through our residencies programme.

Our most recent residency programme was supported with Arts Council funding and last year frieze.com said that ‘London’s studio project spaces like … Kingsgate Workshops are taking up the slack in providing the ambitious and experimental exhibitions the city needs’.

Kingsgate has a secure financial income/turnover of approximately £260,000, owns a long lease on its premises in Kilburn, and has a small, talented staff team. We have exciting plans for the future including continuing our residency and public programmes, and upgrading our premises and other facilities.

Our current Chair of the Trustees will be standing down at the end of 2018 and Kingsgate is looking to replace him, as well as to expand our current Board.

For the role of Chair, we are looking for an individual who will engage with the work of Kingsgate Workshops, help lead its further development and provide both challenge and support to our staff team.

In expanding our Trustee Board we are looking for individuals with an interest in the arts who might also bring experience of PR, public engagement, charity governance or legal work.

Whether you think you would be a suitable candidate for Chair or are interested in joining the Trustees, please contact Tim Walker on tim.walker@blueyonder.co.uk.
