Youth Trustee Position

Meadow Arts is looking for a voluntary Youth Trustee to join the Board of Directors for a period of one year. We believe that great art should be for everyone: to realise that ambition we need to include the next generation in the organisation from the top down; to help shape our plans and develop ideas for the future. We want to listen to the views of our younger audience and to engage with people aged under 25. Could you help us to do that?


Here at Meadow Arts, we celebrate extraordinary visual art across the region of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire and beyond. We work with artists at all stages in their career and aim so share these experiences with a diverse audience. As Youth Trustee, you’ll be an important member of the Board of Directors for the period of one year. You’ll help us make important decisions about upcoming projects, you will review our annual budgets, and help us form policies surrounding the issues that affect arts and culture across the region.
