The Aim

We are creating three new places for students on our key governance board, which includes eight members of the senior University staff and is chaired by the Dean of FABSS. These new student members will have the same status and power as other members in discussion and decision making. We are now inviting expressions of interest from students excited by influencing the direction and strategy of Arts Connect. In return we can offer support to develop your skills in leadership and governance and build valuable experience for career growth as well as contributing to the wider community.

Arts Connect is part of the Faculty of Arts, Business and Social Sciences at the University of Wolverhampton. We believe that engagement with the arts and culture in all its forms, the opportunity to take part, to create and produce culture supports children and young people (0-25) to build the social and cultural capital that enables them to thrive.

Our vision is that all children and young people have equal chances to engage with arts, culture and creativity in their education, their own lives, and develop their skills and interests as far as they want to take them – whether that is a career as a creative, a role in the industry or for their own personal enjoyment and expression.

You can find out more about what we do here on our website and Facebook and Twitter!
