Chinese Arts Now is looking for a new Chair to oversee its Board of Trustees. Founded in 2005, CAN produces and presents contemporary Chinese performing arts including music, theatre, live art, digital arts and dance. CAN receives regular funding from Arts Council England and is a registered charity.

CAN’s current Chair is due to step down next year having completed the maximum term allowed for a Trustee. We are looking for a successor with a love of the arts, a belief in the importance of representation, leadership experience, diplomatic and strategic skills, and the time and dedication to help CAN. We encourage applications from those currently underrepresented in the arts.

You can read more about the role of Chair and how to apply by downloading the Chair recruitment pack. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis with a final deadline of Thursday 15 July at 12noon.
