Project Theatre is looking to strengthen its Board of Trustees through the appointment of more board members to join its current board.

Board members are responsible for maintaining the overall strategy and objectives for the organisation and monitoring performance and the company is looking for a mix of skills and experience to match its needs.

Applications from people who have experience in the arts, creative industries, business, working with young people, charity governance, fundraising, finance and marketing would be particularly welcome.

Project Theatre is an award-winning Scottish performing arts Charitable Incorporated organisation (Charity Number SC046661) that celebrates the energy, experience and potential of all young people. Established in 2008, it provides a platform for young people to express themselves, be creative and create live theatre and performance driven by its Positive Performance approach.

Project Theatre is the only performing arts organisation in the local area working in this particular way and has established a reputation for high quality, diverse work which reflects an eclectic range of theatrical styles underpinned by pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes.

The organisation currently produces at least two stage productions a year and offers several skills training and development opportunities for young people in theatre, dance and performing arts throughout the year through classes, workshops and community projects.

Project Theatre is partly funded by donations and grants as well as membership and participation fees and currently has the management structure of Board of Trustees, Team Committee, Creative and Production Staff and Volunteers. 

Board meetings are held 4-5 times a year in Falkirk. Please note that this is a voluntary role. The Trustees do not receive remuneration for the role, however expenses incurred in carrying board duties will be fully reimbursed.
