Opportunity: Join CDS’ Board of Trustees

Chisenhale Dance Space is looking for 3-4 new Trustees to join its Board and support the organisation as it continues on a journey of sustainable, increased public-facing activity, championing under-represented artists making dance and performance.

Do you love what we do and want to contribute your skills and expertise to our dynamic, eclectic and heritage-filled artistic community?

The role of the Board of Trustees is to support the strategic vision and leadership of the company and ensure we remain radical, relevant to our artistic and local communities, well managed and financially sustainable.

We are open to hearing from anyone who is passionate about what Chisenhale Dance Space does, but are keen to hear from people with expertise in the following areas:

  • Bow and Tower Hamlets community
  • Diversity and inclusivity
  • Health, sport and wellbeing
  • Education
  • Fundraising and philanthropy
  • Marketing and communications
  • Property and development

CDS is also committed to continuing to have artists on our Board.

Chisenhale Dance Space welcomes applications from everyone and actively encourages individuals with a variety of backgrounds, experience and perspectives. We are particularly keen to here from BAME applicants / people of colour as we are beginning a process to better support artists of colour within our Membership. We encourage applications from people that identify as disabled, though unfortunately the Space itself does not have step-free access.

Trusteeships are voluntary roles. Travel expenses or access support expenses can be provided.
