Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is London’s leading space for contemporary culture. We commission, produce and present new work in film, music, performance and the visual arts by today’s most progressive artists. In our landmark home on The Mall in central London, we invite artists and audiences to interrogate what it means to live in our world today, with a genre-fluid programme that challenges the past, questions the present and confronts the future.
We have always been an alternative and safe place for artists who are looking beyond the mainstream: the ones who are willing to go beyond the status quo, the artists who take risks and defy definitions. To safeguard this space for them and the next generations, securing the future of the ICA for the next 75 years is our most important responsibility.
We are now looking for up to four new trustees to join our Board who are experts in their field within income generation, property and real estate, sponsorship brands with a focus on attracting a younger audience, and/or general governance experience. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to become part of our ongoing journey and contribute to a vision for the ICA that will elevate the organisation and to rebalance its multidisciplinary programme across all arts and media with the diversity of its spaces and specialists.
Through these appointments, we actively seek to broaden the diversity of our Board in all aspects to enrich our collective decision-making and governance with those who share our values and demonstrate strategic thinking with outstanding communication skills, the ability to probe and appropriately challenge both the Executive and Board colleagues, deploying a collaborative approach and sound judgement.
We are committed to building an organisation that is a true representation of our city and our country today and are invested in supporting people of colour; women; LGBTQI+; people with (dis)abilities; those from disenfranchised socio-economic backgrounds as well as disadvantaged and underrepresented communities to participate in and be part of our work.
