We are seeking new members for the Performing Arts Sub-Committee of our main board.
The sub committee works with the staff team and advises the board on four areas:
- The performing arts programme, which includes amongst other things dance, music, theatre, comedy, family events, live streaming and film most, but not all of which, occur at Quarterhouse.
- The Folkestone Book Festival and other festivals the charity produces.
- The learning programme that works with young people and adults and covers all art forms including visual art, performance, creative industries and writing. The programme works through schools and outside these formal structures.
- The Visitor Experience for the audiences and visitors to all the charity’s activities including Quarterhouse, Folkestone Artworks and the Creative Quarter.
We are seeking people with significant senior experience in these areas who have a positive interest in the work of Creative Folkestone and the future of the town and district.
The committee meets four times a year, but advice might be sought between meetings. Some attendance at events would be expected in order to understand the work of the committee fully.
The post is voluntary. It is an advisory position and has no formal legal, charitable obligations or responsibilities.
