Applications invited for Youth Theatre Ireland YOUTH BOARD

Applications invited for Youth Theatre Ireland YOUTH BOARD

Youth Theatre Ireland is piloting a new model for including young voices in arts organisations. Ireland has the youngest population in the EU. 18% are aged between 10 and 24 and we believe that hearing and acting on young voices should be a concern of every arts organisation.

Youth Theatre Ireland already places young people at the centre of our programme and now, with the Youth Board, we are strengthening our commitment to youth leadership as well as developing a model that could be replicated in other arts organisations.

We are seeking up to eight people aged between 18 and 25 to get involved at a strategic level with Youth Theatre Ireland. The Youth Board will help to provide strategic leadership to the team at Youth Theatre Ireland by sharing their first-hand knowledge about the needs and interests of young people in the context of youth theatre. 

Youth Board members must be current or past members or leaders of a youth theatre and expressions of interest are invited before the deadline of Friday 29th September 2017.

Find out more about the Youth Board including its function and the commitment involved.
