We have some changes in the team at B arts to announce. Our Executive Director Trevelyan Wright is heading off to Wolverhampton to take over as CEO of the Newhampton Arts Centre at the end of May. As we say goodbye to Trevelyan, we welcome to the team Chris Twigg, who will join us as our new Company Manager from the start of May. We’re sorry to see Trevelyan go and are sure he’ll have the same positive impact in Wolverhampton that he’s had for us and for the wider cultural sector in Stoke and North Staffordshire over the past nine years. We’re delighted to work with Chris again as he worked with the company a decade ago and hails from the city.
As B arts embarks on a four-year National Portfolio Programme of work funded by Arts Council England the company has an exciting future. More staffing developments will follow over the coming months as the company puts in place the foundations to see it fully embrace the NPO opportunities.
