Details of Role: 


Kilter is looking for new board members!

We create bespoke theatre, public engagement and community arts projects and events in a range of settings. We are growing and adapting all the time - the arts/theatre world is very different to when Kilter first began making work in 2006. The Board that has grown with the company is friendly, enthusiastic and hard-working, and we have learned a lot together.   However, we now have the opportunity to acquire new skills and energies to reflect our identity and ambitions, and we are excited to be looking for exceptional people to help carry Kilter forward.

We are pleased to be developing new strands of work in partnership with universities & other businesses. However, we also remain true to our core principles: to create mould-breaking theatrical events that make a difference; projects that engage participants & empower positive behaviour; interdisciplinary collaborations that impress audiences, reflect positive futures, healthier, happier people & a recovering climate.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for people who are passionate about Kilter and what we stand for.  We hope applicants will have time and energy to support our work and to advocate and network on our behalf to build opportunities and make the most out of what we already do. We seek optimists and realists, sounding-boards, constructive critics, over-seers and future-gazers.

Particular skills & personalities…

We would like as broad a range of people as is practical. We make work with a wide range of artists for audiences of every shape and size. Therefore we are keen to welcome applicants of all backgrounds, regardless of age, race, disability or sexual orientation. You don’t need to have an arts background (in fact it can be quite helpful if you don’t).

There are some skills that we are particularly looking to bring to the table but do not feel that a lack of any of the following disqualifies you from consideration…

  • Marketing
  • Press
  • Branding
  • Profile Raising
  • Fundraising
  • Corporate Sponsorship
  • Company Development
  • Volunteer Co-ordination
  • Legal Guidance
  • Digital Technology skills
  • Local knowledge & networks

For the full role description please see the Theatre Bristol website.

Closing Date: 
Monday, 17 December, 2018 - 17:00
How to Apply: 

If you think you would enjoy the opportunity to influence and support a pioneering, multi-award winning local arts organisation, please email explaining why you are up for the challenge.

Deadline: 17 December 2018
