UXBRIDGE Arts & Culture was founded at 35 Uxbridge Road, Howick in 1981, when the former Howick Borough Council purchased the Uxbridge Presbyterian Church and associated buildings. The Council facilitated the establishment of the Uxbridge Community Projects, an incorporated society, to operate the facilities for the community, providing arts and cultural activities.
In 1994 the organisation restructured into a business model with the voluntary management committee transformed into a Governing Board, elected by members annually. More information can be found in our constitution. UXBRIDGE now attracts more than 100,000 visitors annually to its exhibitions, classes, programmes and events and more.
UXBRIDGE is governed by an incorporated society called the Uxbridge Community Projects, registered under the Charities Act. The Board has a governance function on behalf of the Incorporated Society. UXBRIDGE is looking for Board members able to work strategically to take the organisation into a new phase of development. Expressions of interest for this unpaid role should be made to the Director.
The UXBRIDGE team are dedicated to enhancing the local community through arts, culture and lifestyle activities. The team organise exhibitions, events and classes and are currently managing the redevelopment too.
