Up to 10 local 18-26 year olds will help shape the Leicester theatre’s future plans as part of a new group.
Local 18-26 year olds who have a passion for theatre and a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusivity are being sought for Curve’s new Youth Panel. This new group will help steer the direction of the theatre and ensure Curve continues to engage with young people from Leicester, Leicestershire and beyond.
The Curve’s new Youth Panel will consist of up 10 voluntary positions, with one member also acting as co-chair of the group and sitting on Curve’s Board as Young Trustee.
Sita McIntosh, Chair of Curve’s Board of Trustees, said:
“The creation of this new Youth Panel is a really exciting step.“
“I’m looking forward to seeing Curve bring together an enthusiastic group of local young people who share Curve’s inclusive and ambitious values to help steer the theatre’s future.“
“I’m also thrilled that one of the panel members will join Curve’s Board. This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in the running of one of the UK’s leading arts organisations and will ensure future audiences and artists voices play an active role in Curve’s plans.”
Youth Panel members will act as ambassadors for the theatre and will play an integral role in making sure young people are central to Curve’s ambitions and plans. Panellists will also be able to take part in training, and have the opportunity to attend performances and activities across the organisation.
Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said:
“Young people play an integral role in the life of Curve and since 2013 we have benefited from the experience and insights of an appointed Young Trustee on our Board. We look forward to working with a group of young people to help shape and guide our ambitions.
“If you’re enthusiastic about Curve and want to be part of our future, please do consider applying; we very much look forward to hearing from you.”
Applications to join Curve’s Youth Panel are now open and will close on Sunday 2 April. Further details can be found by visiting Curve’s website – www.curveonline.co.uk/about-us/careers/
