We are seeking new Trustees
The Borlase Smart John Wells Trust is keen to find a range of people who would like to help to guide our vision and activities for the next few years by becoming a member of our governing Board.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds to ensure that it represents the varied communities we wish to serve, but particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, minority ethnic and LGBTQ+ candidates and young people as these groups are currently under-represented on our Board. Particular skills that we wish to recruit include practicing artists and digital marketing.

Porthmeor Virtual Artist Talk June 2020
This talk was recorded on Monday 22nd June 2020, and was the idea of Emma Fineman to help connect artists in the strange lockdown times. It provides a great insight into the artists’ experiences living and working at the St Ives-based studios, the impact the landscape and surroundings have had on their work, their involvement in the local community projects, and the history of these famous studios that once housed the likes of Francis Bacon, Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson, and Wilhemina Barns-Graham.

Katy Hessel was joined in conversation with Lubaina Himid, Sam Bassett, Simon Bayliss, Emma Fineman, Rosanne Robertson, and Kate Walters. To see a recording of the talk  Click here.
