A Unique Opportunity To Join The Board Of A Birmingham Arts Organisation
Have you ever wanted to have a say about the arts in Birmingham? Would you like the opportunity to sit on the board of a Birmingham arts organisation as a company director and a charity trustee?
Arts organisations across the city have said that they would like young people aged 18–25 to become members of their management boards. They want to hear the views of young people and give them a real say in the running of their organisations.
Applications are now open for young people to take part in a weekend designed to prepare them for the responsibilities which being a member of a board entails. Upon completion of the course young people will be placed with an arts organisation they have an interest in and provided with a mentor, an experienced member of the board, who will guide them through their first year with the organisation.
The dates are Saturday 14 July and Sunday 15 July at Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Overnight hotel accommodation and all meals and refreshments will be provided. Priority will be given to young people living in Birmingham.
By the end of the weekend participants will have:
- Learned about the way in which arts organisations are managed
- Understood the roles and responsibilities of board members
- Heard about the support structures available to new board members
- Found out about arts organisations that seek to recruit young people to their boards
Please find an application form to download from here. If you are interested in applying please return it to:
Birmingham Repertory Theatre
The deadline for applications is 15 May 2018 and a recruitment workshop will be held on Monday 4 June 2018.
