A volunteer Management Board of up to six trustees supports Citizen Curator in policy and strategic development.

Under the constitution, the trustees are both the charity’s directors and the membership of the organisation. Together they form an experienced group of committed and passionate ambassadors with over 60 years of experience working in social policy, arts administration, project management and business development.

The current trustees recruit new trustees to the Management Board on the basis of skills and expertise gained in the creative and cultural sector, and from external commercial and not for profit organisations.

Supported by the Trustees, Citizen Curator is currently led in operation by its Executive Director, Duncan Bremner.
