What will the board do?

Our new Artist Ambassadors Board is a body of 12 Artfinder artists, selected after careful consideration amongst our team members - who we will work closely with on all things Artfinder. They will be a voice for the wider community and will be representing the diversity of the art and artists we have on our platform. We hope that the Ambassadors Board will help us shape the future of Artfinder and the wider art world.

Artists Ambassadors will help us better understand the needs of artists, will help us prioritise our wider work, as well as perform deep dives into complex issues. As we face the challenges of running a global marketplace whilst staying true to our B Corp ideals, there’s a huge opportunity for us to connect more closely with all our artists, i.e. those who we are here to serve.

Meet our ambassadors

To ensure that we keep delivering the best possible experience for our community, we want to ensure our artists are represented in our decision-making. Meet the 12 Ambassadors who will accompany us on this exciting new journey!
