We are seeking two new members to join the Centre’s Advisory group for a minimum two-year term.

About the Advisory group and the role of members

The Advisory group has a key role to play in the development and implementation of the activities of the Centre for Cultural Value. It provides recommendations and relevant information to and from the sector to transform thinking, policy and professional practice on questions related to cultural value. The group meets online, twice each year.

Our Advisory group members include a cross-section of researchers, artists, practitioners, policymakers and leaders from different disciplines and sectors. They bring an important diversity of perspectives for the Centre to draw on.

The Centre for Cultural Value is committed to being inclusive and diverse. This means we would particularly welcome applications from people who are currently underrepresented in our group including people who:

  • experience racism (people from Black, Asian and minoritised backgrounds)
  • identify as D/deaf or disabled
  • are based outside of London and the South East of England

This is a voluntary role, however reasonable out of pocket expenses will be paid. We pay freelance or unsalaried members with a fixed rate payment of £175 for their time in preparing for and attending meetings.

For further information on the role please download our information pack.
