We are thrilled to be recruiting a Youth Ambassador Trustee to join our Board of Trustees. You’ll be joining an engaged and experienced Board of Trustees, and will be asked to share your skills, perspective and experience in order to support the charitable aims of the business.
Worthing Theatres and Museum is a unique arts and heritage charity with a large portfolio of distinct venues. WTM is an ambitious organisation that presents a vibrant, diverse and entertaining programme of performances, (theatre, contemporary circus, dance, comedy, music, family theatre, talks) events, film, exhibitions and workshops. We manage a museum collection of national significance (costume, archaeology, fine art, toys), present an annual outdoor summer festival and collaborate with leading UK producing and touring companies. We engage with our local communities through a range of projects, partnerships and venue hires, using art and culture to create opportunities for the benefit of the wider community.
We are seeking candidates who share an enthusiasm for and commitment to bringing culture to all parts of the Worthing community. An ideal candidate will have a deep knowledge and understanding of Worthing and the lives and experiences of the young people in our community, which will be essential in carrying out this role effectively.
The successful candidate will have a strong awareness of current issues and debates around equality, diversity and inclusion, particularly in relation to young people. We are looking for someone who is confident in voicing ideas and opinions and not afraid to put new ideas forward.
The Youth Ambassador trustee will be key in setting up a youth advisory board (made up of young people aged 16-29 from the Worthing community), which they will then chair, as well as being a trustee on the main charity board. The youth advisory board will challenge WTM to ensure that we embody our vision and achieve our aim to:
“Provide aspirational opportunities for young people ensuring the creative voices of the future.”
