CBK Rotterdam is looking for two members for the Supervisory Board

Together with makers, cultural partners, social stakeholders and residents, CBK Rotterdam is working on a lively art climate in Rotterdam. It is crucial that we stand in the middle of the city and are involved in what is going on in the city. Through our Art Office, BKOR, Sculpture International and TENT programs, we enable artists and thus the city to develop new work and a new language, to develop joint initiatives and thus help shape the dreamed city. We operate as a partner of residents and other stakeholders to work together with artists on the basis of their motivation, experience and involvement in a city in which we want to live, a city in which imagination and versatility have an inescapable place. We do this by putting our core qualities, interaction and involvement, at the center of our actions.

Our Supervisory Board meets about five times a year and consists of five people with various professional backgrounds. The members of the Supervisory Board have a connection with Rotterdam and the art & culture in our city. The council members are aware of current events in the sector and in Rotterdam, and they are also prepared to use their knowledge and network for the work of CBK Rotterdam. They supervise constructively and critically the policy that CBK Rotterdam initiates and implements, and are also a sounding board for the director / director.

As a specific Rotterdam institution, CBK Rotterdam wants to be part of the dynamic development of the city and to reflect that. That is why we are also working on a diverse composition of the Supervisory Board and fully subscribe to the Culture Governance Code and the Culture & Inclusion Code. Given the composition of the current Supervisory Board, our preference is for people who are familiar with governance / politics, urban development and urban culture, marketing / communication and / or entrepreneurship.

A motivation accompanied by a curriculum vitae can be sent up to and including 9 March 2020 to vacature@cbkrotterdam.nl, for the attention of Ellen Bouwmeester. General information about CBK Rotterdam can be found on this website. Information about the Supervisory Board can be obtained from Renske van Rees, head secretariat of the Supervisory Board via r.vanrees@cbkrotterdam.nl.
