Help steer our work as a Board member

by Spectra Arts CIC

Spectra seeks Board members to ensure we stay true to our mission and values.
From garden installations to interactive performances, our work seeks to create new spaces with people rather than finding ways to include them in exclusive systems. With nature as our constant collaborator, co-creation is our foundation: we use it to dream up new possibilities, disrupt ill structures and manifest the changes we seek.
Founded in 2013, Spectra has performed to over 12,000 people and run 525 co-creation sessions. Our work is supported and enhanced by long-term partnerships with creative and community organisations.
You might be completely new to governance or have years of experience and want a new challenge. Either way we would like to hear from you. At Spectra we like to lead with care and meeting people where they are at.
If you are interested in joining our board please could you provide an Expression of interest that answers the following questions:
● Question 1: What experience do you have in relation to this organisation and role?
● Question 2: What has interested you in the role?
You are welcome to write your answers, record a voice note or video, or send your thoughts to us in whatever way is most accessible to you.
We will review all expressions of interest and follow up with an in person or online conversation with a member of the Team and a current board member.
We will reimburse approved expenses related to volunteering.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Organisation description

Spectra is a neurodiverse creative collective rooted in radical inclusion, people and place. Our Vision is to lift everyone’s capacity to influence change by celebrating brains that work in different ways. Bringing a wide range of art forms into play, we co-create interactive experiences that create new spaces with people rather than simply finding ways to include them in exclusive spaces.
