Victoria’s Story Theatre Co. is seeking innovative candidates to join our Board of Directors. The current board is composed of arts administrators, parents, and practitioners who value the work of our staff. We are particularly interested in finding local candidates who reflect the primary audience we serve: Kids and Educators! Do you want to have an impact in the art being made for children?
ABOUT US: Story Theatre works to inspire imagination and encourage literacy through live theatrical performance and storytelling. The Company's primary mandate is to create productions for young people that enhance and compliment their learning experiences. Story Theatre tours it’s work to elementary schools across BC and provides access to high quality arts experiences in public spaces. Our organization is in a critical moment of growth and strategic realignment. We are prioritizing youth voices and leadership and we need community members committed to helping us follow through with this change.
COMMITMENT & SKILL SET: This is an Advisory Volunteer Board. Knowledgeability in areas of Finance, Law, Marketing, Place-making, Family or Community Programming, Professional Arts Practices, and Public Education could help direct our staff. Board members are asked to attend four meetings a year. They participate in one annual fundraising event and an AGM, as well as, business and strategic planning sessions every 3 years. Periodic e-mail communications may be required. An annual “Pay-What-You-Can” financial donation by Board Members is encouraged, but not required.
