We are very honoured that a number of highly experienced individuals who have played a leading role supporting the Arts by generously donating their time and resources have agreed to support RIAC by joining our Brain Trust. All share the concern that the tradition of helping arts and culture is maintained and passed on through the generations. By coaching and mentoring our volunteers they will ensure that RIAC Trustees can tap into decades of experience and wisdom.

In 1932, Franklin Delano Roosevelt formed a group of experts informally known as “The Brain Trust” to help educate him on the big questions of the day, reflect on the solutions to put in place and help devise and run his campaign for President. The name caught on and was used by the BBC for its famous 1940s Radio show, later transferred to television.
The members of our Brain Trust share our belief believe that continued education and support are key to help for the next generation of trustees and non-executives.
