Music Theatre Wales is seeking trustees to join its Board
For over 30 years Music Theatre Wales has proudly presented opera as a living, contemporary form – bringing the most adventurous and exciting music and theatre together to tell new stories in new ways. We think it is time to review how we approach this work, starting by asking who should be making it and who it is for, and re-imagining what opera really should look and sound like in the 2020s.
We are looking for people to join our Board to support us as we start to deliver these new programmes. We are actively seeking to expand the range of lived experiences, cultural perspectives and cultural interests in our Board and welcome applications from anyone who believes they have something to offer and who could be a passionate advocate for our work. We are also keen to hear from Welsh speakers.
Our Board of Trustees, led by our Chair, Christine Bradwell, has overall responsibility, making sure that the company is being managed effectively, efficiently, ethically and sustainably. Being a Trustee will enable you to use your knowledge and experience to support our work and the people we work with. It will also give you the chance to develop new skills, benefitting you both professionally and personally. For more information about what being a Trustee involves https://www.gov.uk/guidance/charity-commission-guidance.
The Board holds four meetings a year, either at our base in Cardiff, or remotely via Zoom.
All positions are voluntary and unpaid, although out-of-pocket expenses, such as reasonable travel and childcare costs will be reimbursed. Access support will be provided as required for anyone who has specific needs.
We are looking for Trustees who share our vision, who will challenge preconceptions, who will represent our audiences and artists, and who will support our staff team.
