We are currently looking for up to four new trustees to join our board at what is a very exciting but demanding time for the organisation. We welcome applications from practicing printmakers and one of the new trustees should have experience as a Chartered Accountant.
The work of a board member is unpaid but presents an extraordinary opportunity for suitably skilled or experienced individuals to make a real difference to one of Scotland’s leading arts organisations, whilst developing new expertise as a member of a talented board.
Edinburgh Printmakers is at an exciting point in its development after a successful move in spring 2019 to its new home at Castle Mills, a beautifully restored heritage building in Fountainbridge which was formerly home to North British Rubber Company, once part of a thriving industrial community in Edinburgh. In addition to superb premises, we benefit from an enviable location, national and international reputation, the expertise of members and staff and the support of the community.
Our vision is to create an international centre with world-class facilities and exceptional models of support for artists. Our mission focuses on artistic excellence in print and visual arts practice, providing an inspiring place for audiences and artists at all stages in their careers to learn and grow.
We receive core funding from Creative Scotland as part of its network of Regularly Funded Organisations and annual funding from the City of Edinburgh Council. We fundraise actively, and as a charity with a trading arm all our profits are reinvested in achieving our mission.
After a period of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Edinburgh Printmakers is now working towards reopening its studios and galleries and recommencing its programme of courses and events.
