Looking forward — can you help?

From The Musical Brain's foundation in 2010, until her retirement at the end of 2017, Hilary Bartlett was at the helm of the organisation as Trust Secretary and Director. We were extremely sorry to lose Hilary, and have not yet found a replacement. The Musical Brain would therefore welcome enquiries from individuals interested in taking on the role of Director. We would also welcome contact from those who may be interested in designing and implementing an event or conference that could be appropriately hosted under the banner of The Musical Brain. It may be that instead of finding a permanent Director, we host a variety of ‘curators', who plan and put into practice individual events. We are happy to consider proposals that may involve changes to our management structure.

The Musical Brain has no financial reserves; activities are supported by ticket sales, grants and donations. Funds to cover fees or salary for a new Director would have to be raised (our previous Director worked in a voluntary capacity). Joining The Musical Brain team would be a fascinating opportunity for someone with a passionate interest in the arts and sciences, relevant experience and vision. Living in or close to London would be preferable but not necessarily essential.

If you are interested please email our trustees: info@themusicalbrain.org
