To coincide with Trustees’ Week 2018, a-n published two new a-n Resources guides, written and researched by 2017/18 Clore Visual Artist Fellow Nicola Naismith, looking at why it’s important for artists to be part of the ‘decision making process’, offering advice and tips on how to become a board member/trustee.

Two new guides encouraging artists to “have a greater say” by becoming trustees or board members have just been published on a-n Resources.

Written and researched by 2017/18 Clore Visual Artist Fellow Nicola Naismith, the guides show the important contribution that artists can make as trustees or board members of arts or other organisations, and the value to artists themselves of taking on such roles. There’s also advice from artists with governance experience on how to go about joining a board.
