Who we are

Lighthouse is a Brighton-based arts charity specialising in connecting new developments in art, technology, science and society.
For over 30 years, our programme has revealed new ways of presenting artists and the creative industries, how artistic work and practice can cross boundaries and disciplines, and be used as a way of enhancing digital technology and its place within society.

We are looking for individuals with a passion for contemporary culture - specifically art, film and technology - and a range of skills and experience that may include fundraising, capital development, advocacy, philanthrophy, data analysis, media relations, advertising and marketing as well as access to influential national and international networks.

We are keen for the Board to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve, so we particularly encourage expressions of interest from women, disabled people, LGBTQIA+ people from Black, Asian, diverse backgrounds and people who identify as coming from marginalised community groups. Trustees are expected to attend an average of 5 - 6 meetings per year as well as attendance of our events in return for the opportunity to work with one of the UK’s leading innovators of contemporary digital art and culture.

Application deadline: Friday 10 December 2021
