hARTslane is seeking emerging BAME creatives to join the Advisory Board team! 


Founded in 2012, hARTslane is an experimental art project space in South East London rooted in the local community with an international reach. Our aim is to connect people through the arts and promote ideas for a more just world. Our work includes exhibitions, performances, residences, workshops etc.

Our Advisory Board primary function is to provide clear direction on our purpose, visions and values. You will be joining an extraordinary mix of talent. Your voice will help shape the future of our organisation and your contribution will be valued.

What we look for 

Following a review of our board we are seeking to further diversify and are looking for new members who can better represent the voice of a young and diverse demographic. 

We particularly encourage emerging creatives (21-35  year old) from a BAME background to apply who can bring fresh insight, energy and passion. 

Our Advisory Board meets twice a year in addition to a couple of 1 – to 1 sessions to discuss the direction of the gallery, programming etc. Even though this is a voluntary position, we can cover travel expenses when they occur as well as making our gallery space available in return. 

Why apply

This is an opportunity to learn, grow, network and explore your creative voice within a team setting. You will be assigned an existing board member as a mentor for the duration of your term to support you on your journey with us. In addition, you will learn about how a small scale arts organisation is governed, the challenges and opportunities that it presents.

Your insight and ideas can feed into the programming of the gallery. You will gain experience of board meetings and participating in the discussions inherent in running an art project space.

How to apply 

Interested applicants can submit their expression of interest by Friday 5th of November 2021 via email including:

1. A paragraph about yourself;

2. A paragraph about why you wish to join and 

3. the qualities and skills you feel you can bring to hARTslane. 

Results will be announced by the end of  November.

We look forward to hearing from you!
