Applications open for our Board Matching Programmes 2021!

We are delighted to open applications for our 2021 Board Matching Programmes.

We have two board matching programmes, tailored to suit professionals at all stages of their career journey.

The Young Professionals programme places the best up-and-coming talent that the Northern Ireland business sector has to offer on the boards of leading local arts charities.

Board Bank is a long standing and successful programme, founded by Arts & Business NI, which strategically places experienced/executive business professionals onto the boards of leading local arts organisations.

Why should I consider signing up for a Board Matching Programme?

  • Because you have a passion for the arts, and a desire to work with personal impact to help the cultural sector thrive locally.

  • Because you have strategic, commercial knowledge that can add immense practical value to the work of the local arts sector.

  • Because facilitating the local arts and culture sector is a crucial part of ensuring that Northern Ireland is an attractive and enjoyable place for you and your employees to live and work, both now and in the future.

  • Because peers in your industry who have participated all agree the experience has been profoundly rewarding.
