Description

Moray Art Centre is seeking to strengthen its board by recruiting some new members. We would be interested in hearing from individuals with a business background who bring special knowledge in areas like marketing, third sector experience, finance, IT, Health and Safety etc., and also from those with an artistic background to strengthen our creative team. We would, however, particularly like to hear from those with experience of fundraising, including corporate sponsorship.

Organisation aims and objectives

Moray Art Centre is an eco designed, purpose built Arts Centre, based on the Findhorn coast, North East Scotland and aims to provide a stimulating environment for visual arts education and appreciation. Moray Art Centre is a non-profit centre for the arts running an annual local and international programme of exhibitions, events, classes and art residencies. The carbon-neutral environmentally built and designed Centre is situated in the unique landscape of Findhorn Bay, Moray. Internally the new Centre has been planned to be a vibrant and motivating environment which allows people to meet, discuss and generate a community of creativity. The Centre has three flexible, rentable classrooms, four individual artist studios, a Community Gallery (Gallery 2), with meeting and study areas, and a main hi-spec gallery (Gallery 1). Since opening in 2008, 14,000 people have used the centre. It also has an active volunteer programme in place.
