St Pauls (Bristol) Carnival Community Interest Company is looking for two new Board Members (non-Executive Directors) for the following positions:
In 1968, twenty years after the arrival of the first wave of people from the Caribbean on the S.S. Great Windrush, the now iconic St Pauls Carnival was born. Originally called St Pauls Festival, it was a celebration of cultural diversity that was founded by seven community activists who were part of the Bristol Bus Boycott. From its humble beginnings it has evolved to become one of Europe's premier street-based spectacles of African Caribbean culture.
Today, the event is run by St Pauls (Bristol) Carnival Community Interest Company which was set up to ensure a sustainable future for Bristol’s St Pauls Carnival. It is committed to preserving the Carnival as a free community event, drawing on and helping develop local skills and expertise. The organisation is run by a board of non-executive directors each offering their specific skills, knowledge and expertise on a voluntary basis, and a small operational staff team. We currently have 7 Board members.
Board members need to be able to commit to a Board meeting (approximately 2 hours) every two months and ad hoc sub-committee meetings, using their skills and knowledge to scrutinise the operational team and give strategic advice where appropriate.
