Growing arts organisation seeking new staff

A community arts organisation based in Thirsk is looking to take on two new members of staff, having recently been granted renewed funding from Arts Council England.


The Rural Arts roles both offer an opportunity for someone at the start of their career to gain unique skills and experience at a thriving arts organisation. One will be an internship, supporting “ON Tour”, Rural Arts’ touring scheme that brings cultural performances into rural communities.

The other is a permanent position that will focus on encouraging young people to engage with Rural Arts’ activities and performances. 

Angela Hall, director at Rural Arts, said: “This is a very exciting time to join Rural Arts, as we’re in the process of growing our offering and the community we service. We’re proud to offer these opportunities at Rural Arts because they can provide an excellent start for people with an active interest in the arts.” 

The Arts Council England awards funding to its selection of “National Portfolio Organisations” (NPO) every four years.

The investment is granted to organisations it believes will bring new energy to the arts and cultural sector. Rural Arts was a recipient of the 2014 – 2018 funding, and has been appointed an NPO for 2018 – 2022 based on the strength of its application.  

More information about the roles is available at:

Applications will close on 31 July 2017.
