MagicMeArea: London
Deadline: Sunday 29 September 2019

Magic Me is an arts charity that brings the generations together to build a stronger, safer community. Its projects often link unlikely partners. Young people aged 8+ and adults aged 60+ team up through shared, creative activity. Intergenerational groups meet on a weekly basis in schools, museums, older peoples clubs, care homes, community and cultural organisations.

It is now looking for a Community Ambassador to join its board of trustees – could it be you?

If you answer yes to one or more of the questions below MagicMe would love to hear from you!

  • Do you feel passionately about strengthening communities and bringing people together?
  • Are you interested in how arts and creative work can influence society?
  • Do you want to use your skills, ideas and voice to make positive changes in people’s lives?
  • Do you enjoy engaging in big ideas?
  • Have you been active in a volunteering role before? (involvement in a religious organisation, a school/playgroup of a shared interest/campaigning group?)
  • Do you have time in your daily life which you would like to use for a positive shared goal?

What can MagicMe offer you?

  • A chance to see how a groundbreaking arts organisation runs from the inside
  • An experience which will deepen your understanding of governance in the charity sector and contribute to your professional development
  • The opportunity to use your life experience to shape and influence Magic Me as it grows and expands.

And you do not need to work in the arts or charities, nor have previous experienced of being on a board. MagicMe encourages applications from people of any age (16+), representing all levels of experience and backgrounds.

MagicMe will host drop-in sessions for those looking for more information:

  • 6pm - 7:30pm on Thursday Sept 5th at Poplar Union, 2 Cotall Street, Poplar, London E14 6TL
