There is already something for everyone at Artrix. The very best of all the performing arts - all types of music, theatre, dance, family events, exhibitions, comedy and a film programme offering a refreshing alternative to the multiplexes. Artrix is also home to many talented and established local arts and music groups.
Situated close to the High Street and adjacent to HoW College and North Bromsgrove High School Artrix plays a unique role in North Worcestershire’s community and cultural development. Artrix currently has vacancies on its Board of Directors. We are keen to attract people who will be committed to the organisation and able to give the necessary time, energy and dedication to help lead Artrix through the next stages of our development.
We are looking for people with skills in one or more of the following areas: arts and cultural development, finance, business, education and fundraising, fundraising, legal and artistic and we are keen to hear from anyone who feels they can offer these skills: we are very open to people whose life experience might yield skills from unexpected sources. We are keen to make further connections, especially in the business and commercial worlds. We are also looking for some people sufficiently senior and networked to help us lead our forthcoming community outreach developments.
