We’re seeking a Co-Chair of the Board and a Treasurer … JOIN US!

Chisenhale Dance Space (CDS) has been making space for artists to lead, experiment and create for over 40 years. We’re using this legacy to power a new future and in 2023, we’re reinventing ourselves. CDS is a registered charity and after an exciting few months, including announcing our newly imagined CDS Artist Community, we’re now looking for new trustees to join us to support us on the next steps of our journey:

Co-Chair of the Board – A vital role within the organisation and someone who will play a key part in shaping our future alongside our staff team, artist committee and artist community.

Treasurer – We need someone who’ll help us keep an eye on the bottom line and support our artist-led vision with a keen financial eye.

It’s an exciting time of change and possibility and we’re looking for new trustees who can join in this journey of exploration, lean into uncertainty, and help shape a new way of working together.
