Candoco Dance Company is seeking to appoint new Trustees to join the Board of Directors.
Candoco Dance Company is a company of disabled and non-disabled dancers, working with world-class choreographers to create cutting-edge original live work that that pushes the boundaries of the art form, how it is presented and who gets to do it.
Widely acknowledged as the world’s leading exponent of inclusive dance practice, our work is driven by the understanding that diversity is exciting, and dance is richer when different bodies and perspectives are part of its creation. Delivering top quality commissions, extensive national and international performances, wide-reaching learning, bespoke training and advocacy, Candoco raises the level of debate on dance and disability by showcasing the vast creative potential of inclusive practice.
This is an exciting time for Candoco: a new senior leadership team is now in post (Artistic Co-Directors Charlotte Darbyshire and Ben Wright joined in January 2018, Executive Director Jo Royce joined in October 2018) and a newly refreshed artistic mission and vision will sit at the heart of company activity and the Business Plan for 2018/19 to 2021/22.
We are looking to appoint up to four new Trustees through open recruitment. The newly appointed Trustees will support the Chair and offer their guidance to staff to lead the organisation into the future.
Candoco celebrates diversity and inclusion. We welcome interest from all sectors and backgrounds and would particularly welcome applications from those identifying as disabled.
Please contact Jo Royce, Executive Director by Friday 25th January to set up an initial conversation.
Many thanks for your interest in Candoco Dance Company.
Fern Potter (Chair of the Board)
