Wac Arts believes in the infinite power of the arts to unleash the extraordinary potential of young people. For over 40 years, it has worked with generation after generation of young people, empowering them with the life skills that only the arts can offer. It offers fully inclusive programmes that celebrate diversity, with classes significantly subsidised to make them accessible to all young people aged 5-26. Providing weekend, evening and holiday programmes as well as a full-time professional training course and a vibrant disability and inclusion programme, Wac Arts is rock solid in support of empowering young people to change their worlds through the arts.

In 2000 Wac Arts was fortunate to have been granted a long lease on its base at the Grade II listed Old Town Hall in London’s Belsize Park, from where its core programmes operate and a range of additional activities and services are delivered to the community, corporate and charitable sectors. Nurturing and developing the building is essential to the future sustainability of Wac Arts as a community and creative hub.

Wac Arts is seeking a Chief Executive to provide inspirational leadership and strategic vision to take the organisation on to the next stage of its development and ensuring a sustainable business model that will successfully serve young people for decades to come. Working with experienced colleagues, they will be commercially astute with a track record of developing and leading a team through organisational change, will bring experience of building and nurturing external partnerships with a range of stakeholders, and will be a passionate advocate for young people and the arts.
