Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust is seeking new Trustees to join its Board at this very exciting moment in its development since Pitzhanger reopened to the public in March 2019.
Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade I listed country house of influential British architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. It has just undergone an award winning £12m HLF & ACE-supported project to restore the Manor to Soane’s original designs and to upgrade the adjacent Gallery – a project that was selected as one of the best restorations of the decade by Country Life, 2019 The Trust’s vision is to build on the dual foundations of the historic manor and its contemporary programme of exhibitions to inspire its communities in art architecture and design.
Since opening Pitzhanger has welcomed many thousands of visitors, run a varied programme of events and workshops, and received excellent reviews from the public and the press. Its programme of exhibitions and events is supported by its fundraising campaigns and retail operations, which include its elegant, new-build, café-restaurant in Pitzhanger’s walled kitchen garden. Anish Kapoor inaugurated the new gallery with an acclaimed exhibition of mirror sculptures, setting the tone for the ambitious programme of exhibitions to follow.
Having successfully taken Pitzhanger to opening the Trust is now seeking new Trustees to guide Pitzhanger through the next period of its development, as it builds on its achievements, broadens its reach to new audiences, expands its education and outreach activities, continues the momentum of its exhibition programme, and strengthens its financial and operational resilience.
The Trust is looking for energetic Trustees with broad experience who are passionate about the arts and heritage, and the benefits both can bring to the community; are keen to get involved in a project in the early stages of development that can really make a difference; and who are sensitive to the challenges of developing dynamic business opportunities in a cultural context.
If you are excited by the opportunity to work with Pitzhanger to help it achieve its aspirations please send your CV, plus a covering letter (max. 2 sides A4) summarising how your skills could support Pitzhanger, to: email@example.com
