Theatre for young people with learning disabilities ‘Open Theatre’ seeks new Trustee with legal expertise
Open Theatre has been committed to developing, promoting and sustaining the creativity and artistry of young people with a learning disability since 1984. We use nonverbal physical theatre to collaborate with young people with a learning disability, creating quality art which reflects and celebrates their unique creativity. We wholeheartedly believe in the ability of young people with a learning disability to contribute to the creative and cultural life of the places where they live, and work as advocates for their valued involvement as artists and leaders.
We are driven by a desire to transform the West Midlands into a radically creative space, a centre of best practice and excellence for young people with a learning disability. We seek to enable young people with a learning disability to access and make meaningful creative contributions to the cultural life of the region and beyond, becoming the artists, leaders, facilitators, and enablers of the future. Our core values, ways of working and engaging with people throughout all areas of our work have grown through the non-verbal physical theatre practice that was developed (and is still evolving) through our sustained interaction and integration with young people with a learning disability.
We are looking specifically for people who are able to help support the organisation with the following priorities:
• Financial management – we would be interested to hear from anyone with
experience of rapid organisational growth, especially with regard to managing
• Legal and HR – we are looking for support as our staff team grows
• Experience of working alongside people with a learning disability in non-arts sectors
