Tannery Arts/Drawing Room is recruiting new board members


Tannery Arts/Drawing Room would like to make itself more relevant to the communities it serves. Both a studio provider and a public gallery, we are looking for people who would like to have a say in how we operate and what we prioritise over the coming years.

In the next few years we will be moving to a permanent new home in Bermondsey, making it an interesting time to join our board, the management committee. A key part of being a board member is to contribute to the work of the organisation by sharing skills, contacts, experience and new perspectives. We need motivated individuals to help support us to implement our plans for the future.

We are a small but ambitious non-profit organisation that enables artists to make great art, by providing studios, presenting exhibitions and creating opportunities for people of all ages to engage with contemporary drawing in a hands-on way. We also have a shop and a unique, free, open access library, holding one of the largest collections of titles on contemporary drawing in the world.

If you are passionate about the visual arts and believe that it can make a contribution to maintaining and building communities –perhaps you’re an artist, a teacher, work with communities or for a local business – here is your opportunity to play a key role as this dynamic organisation moves into its first permanent home in Bermondsey in 2022.
