Trustee, New Light (Northern Art)


As New Light approaches its tenth birthday it is clear we have outgrown our founding team and reached a point where decisions about our future need to be made. We need new Trustees with new ideas to help continue the success New Light has already achieved.

Established in 2010, we celebrate and promote Northern art, supporting both well-known and emerging artists by offering some of the region’s best awards and opportunities with the biennial New Light Prize Exhibition, which is fast becoming one of the UK’s largest and most talked about open exhibitions.

In a bid to make contemporary art more accessible, we also run New Light Art for All – an education programme which includes talks, workshops and school projects. Through the New Light Collection, we aim to make the best in Northern visual arts available to more people, by loaning pieces from the Collection free of charge to public bodies and charities. This results in more people experiencing the thrill of having art of the highest quality displayed on their walls.

The common thread through all we do is a deep belief that the visual arts matter and the North of England deserves to be celebrated.

We certainly hope the opportunity to join us excites you as much as we are excited to welcome fresh talent onto our small team.
