London Arts and Health is committed to being an inclusive employer and contractor, welcoming staff and consultants from various backgrounds and all protected characteristics. We welcome and encourage applications from individuals currently underrepresented in arts and health, including disabled people and racially minoritised candidates. In compliance with the Equality Act, we offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants who meet all the essential criteria.
London Arts and Health (LAH) is a registered charity that creates and promotes opportunities for the arts to reach everyone in society – regardless of their health or personal circumstances. It has two primary focuses - creating opportunities for people experiencing health and care needs to engage with the arts and raising awareness of the health and wellbeing benefits of engaging with high-quality creative activities.
We believe that participating in the arts and offering routes to using creativity makes a crucial difference to the health and wellbeing of individuals and society. LAH is a central pillar in the fast-emerging world of arts and health. LAH has been at the forefront of this work for many years and is widely respected for its support to individual artists, patients and service users, health professionals, and the wider public. The organisation works collaboratively in everything it does, partnering with a vast range of stakeholders to increase the impact the arts can have on the health of everyone in society.
People with acknowledged health needs (mental and physical) are traditionally excluded from the arts. Yet, research increasingly indicates that engaging in creative activity has wide-ranging health and wellbeing benefits. LAH exists to challenge traditional inequalities by generating more and better arts experiences for everyone.
Over the past three years, the Charity has seen a complete overhaul with a new name, rebranding, several new websites, digital tools and a new temporary home in the middle of the City of London. We have also recruited nine temporary staff through the Kickstart scheme, significantly increasing the resource available to the Charity.
LAH is in a strong position with a solid fundraising plan and theory of change which the new Executive Director will deliver. The Charity is currently implementing many income generation plans, and a leader with an entrepreneurial outlook would fit well with the Charity.
The Charity appointed a Head of Digital in 2020, which has improved and increased our digital presence with many high-profile platforms and tools being scaled up nationally, alongside our partner, the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance. We are currently implementing a new membership programme and offering our City Arts and Health Hub space for members to work, network and exhibit. The Director will oversee this rollout to ensure the opportunity is well marketed.
Our ambitions for LAH and the wider sector are high, including new projects networks and events, an expansion of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, and a specific focus on increasing the diversity of the field of culture and health practice.
Your role will be to lead the organisation and deliver this activity, managing staff and supporting the board in achieving its strategic vision for the organisation. You will be a passionate and compelling advocate for the impact of the arts on health and wellbeing. You will be highly experienced in the arts and/or health with a proven capacity to collaborate with diverse partners. You will be great at combining strategic vision with a willingness to deliver practical solutions, and you will have a track record of implementing and delivering change.
Over the next year, we want to deliver the new strategic vision and establish permanent staff contracts, alongside delivering our core business. You will demonstrate experience and understanding of running a small charity with a small staff team to best support our goals, with outstanding partnership working and a proven track record of effective fundraising and change management.
To lead London Arts and Health delivering the key commitments in our business plan, including Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2022, our regular newsletter, our social media outputs and providing advice and support to the arts and health sector.

Who we are

About the International Human Rights Programme
The International Human Rights Programme (IHRP) supports work aimed at protecting the fundamental rights of the individual. This includes efforts to secure accountability for gross human rights abuses, to protect and enable human rights defenders, to advance LGBTQI rights and to reduce arbitrary detention in a criminal justice and immigration context.
The programme has a grant-making budget of USD 30 million per annum to support activist organisations in our key geographies (EU, US, Russia, India, Myanmar, and Brazil). We provide core, project, and seed funding in multi-year grants. The IHR Programme is based in London and comprises a diverse team of a director, five programme officers, a programme assistant, and a fellow.
Recent years have seen a marked deterioration in the quality and substance of political discourse. Human rights (and the liberal values underpinning our rules-based system) have come under sustained attack. These developments have rendered citizens susceptible to demagoguery and political manipulation, and nations easy quarry for potential autocrats. These information challenges have become even more acute in the context of the pandemic.
The programme officer will be responsible for the development of a new stream of grants within the programme’s strategy to address the production, packaging, and dissemination of malign content (including fake news, deep fakes, and disinformation). Grants will address:
- The means of content production, e.g., bots and artificial intelligence.
- The packaging, targeting and distribution of content, including through data collection and exploitation, algorithmic curation, and microtargeting.
- Broader infrastructural challenges, namely platform regulation and internet shutdowns.
- The programme officer will be expected to liaise with other programme colleagues working on how technology can be deployed to advance civic activism and advise on the scope of digital rights more broadly.
