Join our Advisory Board – Apply Now!


We are recruiting for a number of new Advisory Board members to work with us to develop Eastside Projects across the next three years.


* We are looking for people of all ages and experiences.

* We are interested in new thinking and transferrable skills so you do not need to have been on a board before, and you do not need to work in the visual arts.

* We want to build a diverse, collaborative group of Advisors who are interested in both what we do and how we work, and who are up for thinking through how our artist-led, polyphonic approach can also be reflected in how Eastside Projects is governed and organised.

* We are especially interested in meeting people with expertise in architecture and city planning, law, fundraising, and community development. That said we are looking for people with a range of skills, approaches, and life experiences, so if you feel you have something to contribute then please apply.

* We believe our board should reflect the city we work in and so would like to hear from women and non-binary people, people with Global Majority Heritage, people who are disabled, d/Deaf or who have a chronic illness, and people from working-class and lower socio-economic backgrounds.


Before applying please read through our Info Pack which contains further information about the Advisory Board, Eastside Projects, and how we work together. Download it HERE.

2. An up-to-date CV and your contact details including your phone number.

3. Our aim is for Eastside Projects to reflect the city and communities we work in.

We may also use it to take positive action to address issues of under-representation within the Advisory Board when shortlisting candidates for interview.
