Portsmouth’s leading contemporary art gallery Aspex are looking for new Trustees

Aspex brings new art and ideas to the heart of Portsmouth. Its mission is to cultivate art, creativity and a collaborative community. The charity believes that art improves lives, brings joy, broadens minds, facilitates learning and
creates meaningful connections in our communities. They create opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience contemporary visual art – from looking and discussing to making and curating.

Aspex is now looking for new Trustees to support them in achieving their aims. It is an exciting and rewarding time to join the charity, as they focus on improving access to cultural opportunities for their participants, including people with dementia, children and young people, and the refugee and asylum seeker community, as well as engaging those in Portsmouth and the surrounding area who may not have visited the gallery or interacted with contemporary visual art before.

They are particularly looking to appoint new Trustees with experience and or expertise in finance, artistic
practice, education/learning, and the environment.

“Being an Aspex Trustee is an opportunity for me to give back to my community while also providing me with an overview of an entire organisation. The experience has enhanced the opportunities I have had in my working life, supporting me to learn vital leadership skills,” says Maricar Jagger, Refugee Coordinator for the Diocese of
Portsmouth and Aspex Trustee.

Please email jo@aspex.org.uk to book, or if you cannot attend but would like to arrange a chat, they may be able to offer an alternative time and
date online.

The deadline for applications is Monday, 3 October 2022.
