D6: Culture in Transit

D6: Culture in Transit is seeking new members to join its Board of Directors to support a programme that connects the local to the international and considers our place in the changing world.  

D6 works with extraordinary artists, communities and partners to produce visual arts projects locally and internationally. The organisation is continuing to expand its international programme of residencies, research, exhibitions and events from its base in Newcastle upon Tyne.

If you have a deep interest in the visual arts and believe in culture’s ability to connect different people and ideas, D6 welcomes your application for this role.

More about the role

D6 is looking for up to three people to join its current Board of Directors. It is important that D6’s board reflects the diversity of the community in which it is based and the wider communities it works with. 

​The organisation is looking for people with an interest in or who would like learn more about the issues it explore in its work: cultural rights and social justice, heritage and decolonisation, and environmental justice. 

​D6 is particularly keen to find new members with local or international experience in these areas:

  • Artistic or curatorial practice 
  • Cultural and voluntary sector management 
  • Migration and mobility (rights, access and advocacy)
  • Legal experience from the private, public or charitable sectors
  • ​Finance expertise with practical experience of producing management or statutory accounts, and ideally knowledge of the not-for-profit and charitable sectors 

D6 welcomes applications from individuals at all career stages, with a range of backgrounds and lived experiences.  Ideal candidates will have a connection to the North East, and/or be able and willing to travel to board meetings and events, although those with relevant skills and experience will be considered. 

This is an unpaid post. The initial term will be for three years, with the Board meeting approximately every three months and occasional additional meetings when required.

D6 seeks to ensure that no present or potential member of staff, Board member, artist or project participant is treated less favourably than another on grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, marital or civil partnership status, disability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, age, social class or offending background.
