Management Board

Our Management Board is made up of voluntary members whom with we meet regulary throughout the year and occasionally with groups of artists or project representatives to share and shape the companies achievements and plans and help turn Lisa and Polly’s vision into a sustainable reality-

Their role includes:

  • Championing the interests of Changing Relations C.I.C. including networking, promoting the Company and projects where appropriate, speaking positively about the Company ethos.

  • Acting as a sounding board and critical friend for Directors, including actively listening to ideas and providing critical non-judgmental feedback.

  • Contributing to shaping the strategic direction and future projects of the Company.

We have recently reviewed the Membership of our Board & are currently in the process of inviting new board members to join our existing team – We are committed to creating a more diverse membership. 

Meet the team!
