Vacancy: Cultural Compact Chair

Culture Central has been working with Birmingham City Council to establish a Cultural Compact for the city, and we now seek a Chair for this group.

The Birmingham Cultural Compact seeks to co-create and co-deliver a holistic vision for culture in Birmingham. Our vision is part of a step-change in the sustainability and contribution of culture to the life of the city. It will link the cultural sector to broader aspirations and priorities for Birmingham and secure partnerships between the cultural sector and other sectors.

The role of Chair is an opportunity for a strategic leader to drive the programme forward, and to build and foster good relationships between the Compact and key stakeholders including Arts Council England and Central Government Departments.

To find out more about the Cultural Compact, please see the draft terms of reference. You may also be interested to read the Birmingham Cultural Investment Enquiry, which is referred to within the draft terms of reference.
