We believe it's really important that we recruit people with a passion and enthusiasm for what we do and what we want to achieve. At Lakeland Arts, we come from all walks of life and backgrounds but we have one thing in common: connecting people with outstanding art and heritage in our breath-taking world-class cultural landscape.

More than this, our people work in some of the most beautiful buildings, venues and locations throughout the county and feel a real sense of pride in the job they do, every single day.

Work with us to help reflect the diversity of British society and culture.  We are looking for passionate people from diverse backgrounds who can offer friendly challenge and support as we develop our programme across Lakeland Arts.

We’re looking to establish a Creative Case for Diversity Advisory Group for people that feel underrepresented in the arts and heritage industry.

We believe that everyone deserves to see themselves represented in our work and we feel a sense of ownership over our collective histories and culture. To do this, we intend to work with community curators, who help us form our exhibitions and grow our collections.

This is a unique opportunity to get involved with four arts and heritage sites, learning about what we do, while helping to shape, inspire and inform our programme. You don’t need to have a knowledge of art and history, but an enthusiasm for making it available to all is a must.

We want to work with people from a variety of backgrounds, ages, genders, disability statuses, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities and/or family circumstances. We’d like the CCD Advisory Group to reflect this mix of ideas and experiences, to help us make the innovative and creative programmes our audiences want.
