The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is London’s leading space for contemporary culture. We commission, produce and present new work in film, music, performance and the visual arts by today’s most progressive artists. In our landmark home on The Mall in central London, we invite artists and audiences to interrogate what it means to live in our world today, with a genre-fluid programme that challenges the past, questions the present and confronts the future.
We actively seek to broaden the diversity of our Board in all aspects to enrich our collective decision-making and governance and who share our values and demonstrate strategic thinking with outstanding communication skills, the ability to probe and appropriately challenge both the Executive and Board colleagues, deploying a collaborative approach and sound judgement.
In the present, we find ourselves navigating through a time marked by significant transformations and profound challenges. Undoubtedly, this period will be remembered as a time of immense difficulty for generations to come.
Here, at the ICA, the times we are in also represent an opportunity to be part of change that is viable and sustainable. To deliver a vision for the ICA that will elevate the organisation and to rebalance its multidisciplinary programme across all arts and media with the diversity of its spaces and specialists. In our landmark home on The Mall in Central London, we invite artists and audiences to interrogate what it means to live in our world today, with a genre-fluid programme that challenges the past, questions the present and confronts the future.
Joining the Board of the ICA is an incredibly exciting opportunity to become part of this ongoing journey, one that has been 75 years in the making. We are currently looking for up to four new trustees to help strengthen the Board and who are experts in their field within income generation, property and real estate, sponsorship brands with a focus on attracting a younger audience, and/or general governance experience.
The ICA has always been a progressive, an alternative, and a safe place for artists who are looking beyond the mainstream: the ones who are willing to go beyond the status quo, the artists who take risks and defy definitions. To safeguard this space for them and the next generations, securing the future of the ICA for the next 75 years is our most important responsibility.
