We are currently seeking a Treasurer to join our existing Board of Trustees. Following recruitment in 2020 of new Board Members, we are keen to recruit a Trustee with strong financial and accounting experience to take on the role of Treasurer. We recently released a statement around our commitment to increasing diversity, and particularly encourage applications from candidates with Protected Characteristics.

This role will suit candidates looking to gain additional experience at a senior level within the Arts and Charity Sectors. You will bring a unique set of skills including experience in senior financial roles, which will contribute to the strategic objectives of Sydenham Arts, and the advancement of the arts in Sydenham, Lewisham and the wider community.

Volunteer Creative Mentors
We are currently seeking expressions of interest to be part of a group of Volunteer Mentors for a new programme we hope to run in 2021-22. This programme will support young aspiring artists and creatives from all disciplines to break into the industry, and continue to follow their creative careers following the devastating impact of Covid-19.

The programme, subject to funding, will match young people with a Mentor, who will meet regularly (online or in person depending on restrictions) to set goals and targets. Volunteer Mentors will be recruited from a diverse array of experiences and backgrounds, but you should have a good knowledge of your field in the arts; this might be as an artist, or a professional in the industry (i.e. Technician, Project Manager).

The programme will also offer a range of masterclasses and workshops- it is likely some Volunteer Mentors will have the opportunity to run some of these (paid).

If you are interested, or want to learn more about the opportunity, the commitments or the role itself, please contact James Hodgson on
