The lads at the Turner Contemporary are advertising for trustees so I thought I'd be after applying. Any fecker can go in for it yer don't have to be some arty-farty type. I thought I'd be a shoo-in for the place as I could spend a couple of minutes having a good old pray every day to see if Our Lord would inter-feckin-vene to stop it turning into a feckin great white elephant.
Journalist John Kampfner is yer man in charge, he says in the application pack:
I am looking to build a team of up to a dozen energetic and experienced people, each with different expertise, to be part of this challenge. The showcase is the new gallery in Margate, designed by award-winning architects David Chipperfield Ltd. Construction is scheduled to begin this autumn, and I hope the first meeting of the board will roughly coincide with the ground-breaking of the site. This will be a major moment, for Margate, for Kent and for the arts in Britain. This will be the biggest gallery in the south-east of England outside London, and is scheduled to open to the public in early 2011.
If you relish a challenge and share Turner Contemporary’s artistic, educational and social vision, I would be delighted to hear from you.
The closing date is 3 September so you'd better be moving yer arses. Anyone who has an unspent conviction for an offence involving deception or dishonesty is barred from applying so that rules out most of the eejits in the feckin council.
