A new charitable trust is to be established to manage the operation and future development of Brighton & Hove City Council’s Royal Pavilion & Museums service. We are now seeking to appoint a Shadow Board of independent trustees to guide the inception of this new organisation to shape the future of a world class arts, culture and heritage offer to transform the cultural landscape of the city.
The trust is seen as a significant step towards the future aim of creating a dynamic, resilient cultural and heritage trust for the city, bringing together RPM and Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival in a single entity.
Brighton & Hove has a nationally renowned museum service comprising the world famous icon in the Royal Pavilion which is the city’s symbol, Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, Preston Manor, the Booth Museum of Natural History and Hove Museum & Art Gallery. The Royal Pavilion, the only former royal palace owned by a local authority, is recognised the world over as a building of international significance and has become the emblem of the city.
This is an exciting voluntary opportunity to help shape the structure, governance, and ways of working of this new trust. We are looking to appoint a diverse board and welcome applications from all sections of the community. You will have an understanding and passion for heritage, museums and collections and their social role and purpose. You will have demonstrable experience in culture, arts and heritage or have professional qualifications and experience in areas such as legal, charity finance, property or transformational change.
