Deadline approaches for new arts board members across Shropshire, Herefordshire and bordering areas.

There are just two more weeks left to apply to join the Arts Alive board of trustees.

They are looking for additional members who can bring new skills, dynamism and energy to the work they do in rural communities – which included over 1,000 events last year across Shropshire, Herefordshire and bordering areas. They are looking for additional members who can bring new skills, dynamism and energy to the work they do in rural communities. Arts Alive is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with a mission to enrich rural areas with access to high quality film and live events in their local venues.

In an era without C-19, Arts Alive (incorporating the award winning Flicks in the Sticks) coordinates well over 1,000 events a year including theatre, music, dance, film, spoken word and live satellite screenings, with over 50,000 people in attendance of their events last year across Shropshire, Herefordshire and bordering areas.

As well as fulfilling their passion for the arts, the trustees help to oversee the finances and fundraising for the organisation, attend quarterly meetings, and provide a sounding board to the core team.

Executive Director, Ian Kerry, is excited to recruit some new voices to the board that can inject new ideas in to the organisation. He comments, “We rely on our Board to steer the Arts Alive ship, and help us to support our staff and volunteers to facilitate everything we do.

“We hope to increase our diversity and range of expertise with new board members, in particular we would welcome individuals aged 18-30 to bring a younger voice, and people with experience of fundraising, digital practices or human resources – any one of these skills would really enhance what we can collectively achieve.”

Applicants have until the 10th August to register their interest with the company. For more information visit www.artsalive.co.uk/Trustee-Recruitment.aspx.
