ORGANISATION

 

Strathearn Artspace (known as Strathearn Arts) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO SC044319), which was entered into the Scottish Charity Register on 14th October 2013. Its broad charitable purposes are to support the arts with Strathearn through promotion, education, community engagement and the provision of a sustainable arts centre based in Crieff. We present a diverse and growing programme of artistic and cultural events and exhibitions at our main base on Comrie Street, as well as supporting events in other venues throughout Strathearn. In the past year, we have hosted concerts, theatre, ceilidhs, folk club, tea dances, comedy, visual art exhibitions, a pop-up museum, author readings/recitals and a cinema. At our heart, we are a community-based project whose aim is to support local artists and creatives in a variety of ways, and to promote Strathearn as a cultural hub within the Scottish arts context.

 

The charity has a board of trustees, who are jointly responsible for running the SCIO and managing its assets.

 

Its purposes are:

•  The provision of recreational facilities to create and run a sustainable arts centre for the residents of Crieff and Strathearn and the wider community to improve their conditions of life through participation and enjoyment of the creative arts.

 

•  To promote and advance the arts, culture and heritage to residents and other people who visit our community by providing opportunities to participate in artistic, cultural and creative endeavours.

 

•  To advance the education of the public through the promotion of the appreciation of and participation in the arts and through the provision of training and education in arts, heritage and culture.

 

•  To advance community development by encouraging the residents to actively participate in making decisions relating to local cultural issues.

Interested in joining us?

The Board is seeking to appoint three new Trustees in 2020. We are looking for volunteers with a wide range of skills and experience and an interest in supporting the Arts in Strathearn. 

Since the organisation was founded in 2013, we have taken on a range of projects, from renovating our historic former-library building to expanding our programme in terms of both diversity and accessibility. We are currently going through a period of rapid growth and as such are looking to expand our Board with the addition of three new Trustees.

Trustees are jointly responsible for running the SCIO and we are looking for individuals with the interests, skills, experience and contacts to identify and exploit new opportunities and help us take Strathearn Arts through its next period of development.

 

If you would relish such a challenge and share our commitment to securing Strathearn Arts’ position as a sustainable and accessible cultural hub for Strathearn, Scotland, and beyond, we would like to hear from you.
