The Royal Society of Sculptors champions sculpture and the artists who create it. We are committed to making the full range of contemporary practice accessible to all and also to promoting high professional and creative standards.
As such, our work is overseen by our governing body, the Council, which elects the majority of its members from our community of artists. The remaining members are drawn from other professions and contribute expertise across a range of fields.
Chaired by the President, the Council comprises the Vice President, the Treasurer and up to nine others, all elected for a three-year term.
The Council is responsible for defining the Society’s strategic vision, policy, procedures and programme. The sculptor members of Council also review applications to the Society and select new members.
