(closed) We are looking for UK-based hub leaders to join our Hubs Advisory Board

We are inviting proposals from UK based hub leaders to join our Hubs Advisory Board to support our ambitious hubs and communities programming across the globe.

Dominik Tryba

In this ever-changing global landscape, we believe hubs are integral to the sustainability and growth of the creative economy. With an increase in requests for advice on local and regional programmes that put hubs at their core, we feel having a group of creative professionals insights and input on our programmes will ensure these stay relevant to today’s trends and needs. 

We are seeking eight Advisory Board members from across the UK; a diverse group representing different types of hubs (in terms of their areas of work, business models, communities). 

The UK Hubs Advisory Board will run for one calendar year, with the possibility of extension by consensus with  members and the British Council. The Board will meet digitally on a quarterly basis, with one face-to-face meeting organised annually.

Eligible applicants can be a creative hub staff member: founder, CEO, community manager, programmes lead, researcher, etc., currently working with/in a creative hub in the UK, serving either a specialised or cross-sectoral community of creative professionals.
