Call out for new board members for Mailout Trust Ltd

mailout exists to promote and develop participatory and community arts in the UK and beyond.  Our mission is to champion outstanding participatory arts in more places with more people and support a world leading community of professional practitioners.

mailout is now looking to broaden the scope of our board to reflect our ambitions. The mailout board does not currently reflect the diversity that we believe is represented by our contributors, readers and users or the communities that they work with. mailout is therefore actively seeking board members from a diverse range of backgrounds.

We are looking for individuals with expertise in digital publishing, archiving, marketing, app development and social networking. We are also seeking board members to act as regional arts representatives.  Our arts representatives may be people who work for organisations engaged in participatory activity, freelance participatory arts practitioners, lecturers or teachers, local authority arts officers or people who use and engage with the participatory arts on a regular basis.


This is a voluntary post. Board members are expected to participate via skype or teleconferencing at board meetings which occur quarterly. These meetings last approximately 1-2 hours. There is an expectation that Board Members will be available for discussion on matters relating to the activities of The Mailout Trust and may occasionally offer support to the Editorial Team via email or telephone in addition to quarterly meetings. There is at least one face to face meeting per calendar year and travel costs are covered in this instance. Board Members may, where appropriate, represent mailout at conferences and other events, however there is no remuneration for this.
