• Diversity – to support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities, enriching and promoting their uniqueness and cultural diversity.

• Strong links into one or more of the diverse communities in the city, including young people (under 18 years)
• An understanding of arts funding processes
• An understanding of arts participation and arts development.

This role is voluntary. It requires approximately one to two days’ preparation for each of the two yearly meetings, plus attendance at the meetings, which are held in the early evening.
