Would you like to have a say in the running of local Arts organisations? Apply for the ‘Young People on Arts Boards Training Programme’

Would you like to have a say in the running of Arts organisations?

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 have the possibility of being placed with an Arts Organisation and provided with a mentor, an experienced member of a board.

The dates are Saturday 18 July and Sunday 19 July 2015, at The New Vic Theatre

The course is FREE of charge and overnight hotel accommodation and all meals and refreshments will be provided.

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
  • Heard from and met executives from arts organisations interested in the voices of young people on their boards.
