VACANCY: Young Creative Trustee
Non remunerated. This post is voluntary, although reasonable expenses, related to your duties as a Trustee, will be paid.
Board meetings held approx. every 2 months in Glasgow.
Established in 1994, Impact Arts is a forward-thinking community arts organisation which uses the arts and creativity to enable and empower social change. We work collaboratively with children, young people, older people and communities across Scotland to achieve our aims, and overall goal: empowering social change. We work predominantly, but not exclusively, with vulnerable groups.
This is an exciting time in the development of Impact Arts as we are looking for a young creative to join our Board and to help steer the future direction of the organisation. We are looking for someone who believes in the power of Impact Arts’ work to transform lives and who is passionate about the impact creative engagement can have in tackling the inequalities which exist in Scotland today.
As a creative organisation, which employs over 100 artists and creatives each year, we are interested in hearing from young people aged 18-26 years who have creative experience and are well networked in the Scottish arts scene, be that through visual arts, music, performance or digital.
Impact Arts will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2019 and we are working towards a refreshed strategy to 2022. Each year, between 60-70% of the 5000 people we engage on our projects are between the ages of 14-25 years. We have recently formed a Youth Steering Group so that we can actively listen to the voices of young people when planning, designing and evaluating our work and as Year of the Young Person 2018 draws to a close, this appointment of a young Trustee to our Board will ensure there is a legacy within Impact Arts by bring a younger voice to our Governance and ensuring youth is at the very heart of our organisation.
