As a team we make art happen anywhere and work collaboratively with artists and communities to create new experiences for people to enjoy and be part of.

Located in the centre of Bedford, our core team work from a converted Victorian house alongside five studio artists who are also based in the building.

We are always keen to hear from artists who are interested in working with us. If you are interested in collaborating with people and places and would like to make a proposal for our future programme please contact us.

You can find out more about who works here on our team page.



The Bedford Creative Arts Board of Trustees is seeking enthusiastic and experienced professionals to join them to help develop and support our work.

Bedford Creative Arts creates transformative cultural experiences that directly engage with communities of all kinds. Working with artists and cultural practitioners we deliver creative programmes and commissions as well as supporting the development of the creative and cultural ecology of the region. We want everyone to have an outrageous sense of entitlement to the arts because we understand its enriching value.

We need trustees who can bring innovative ideas and enthusiasm for our work, as well as excellent judgement, to help us to achieve our objectives and take on future challenges.

We operate a rolling recruitment programme but are particularly looking for trustees with skills and experience in business enterprise, financial management, and relevant artistic programming or curation.

As one of our trustees you would have the opportunity to support a unique, passionate and driven charity, which has a meaningful impact on the communities it works with.

Our Board sets the strategy for the organisation and delegates authority to the Director for all operational matters. The role is voluntary, with all reasonable expenses paid.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for the charity and individuals with these skills will boost the already impressive portfolio of talents represented on the Board.

If you think you have the qualities we are looking for please download a Recruitment Pack and contact
