A core question for FACT, from our work with artists and participants, has been around the idea of trust. How is trust built and exchanged in digital spaces? In his role as artist-in-residence on FACT’s Board of Trustees, Jack Tan explores how trust exists as representation and as performance, asking how it is enacted between staff, trustees, funders and audiences?

For this online event, Jack has invited Rachel Higham, Chair of FACT’s Board of Trustees, to discuss how we build, maintain and explore trust through organisational work and policy-making. Also joining the conversation will be Jane Wentworth, bringing her extensive experience working within cultural institutions to refine their brand and embody their values.
