Could you be a Two Destination Language trustee?
Two Destination Language make and share award-winning contemporary theatre. It is bold, visually arresting and stimulates conversations about the society we live in. Our stage work tours nationally and internationally. Our engagement projects transform communities. Our curation of microfests has introduced artists to new audiences, and audiences to new work. In 2017, our work was seen by over 11,000 people.
Our work investigates identity: cultural difference and what happens when cultures interact, or don’t. The Total Theatre Award winning Near Gone, described in the Guardian as “gorgeous and wild”, uses differences in language – physical, verbal and emotional – to tell a story of family; by contrast, LANDED works with older people to place an often marginalised group at the centre of an intimate contemporary performance.
The organisation is led by artists Alister Lownie and Katherina Radeva, who have created all Two Destination Language’s projects. The trustees oversee the organisation’s work, offering support and challenge as Katherina and Alister research, create and share high-quality stimulating experiences. We are at an exciting stage of development as we build on our profile both nationally and internationally and we are looking for wise and creative minds to contribute to the growth of Two Destination Language.
This means we are currently looking to expand our board of trustees, and are seeking to recruit individuals with experience in one or more of the following areas, although if you’re interested but think your skills lie elsewhere, we’d be delighted to discuss the opportunity with you:
- Strategic planning and development
- Marketing and communications
- Accountancy and finance
We welcome expressions of interest from a wide range of backgrounds (personal and professional), and experience from outside the arts is especially valuable, so if you’re interested in supporting the company as a trustee, please do get in touch. While meetings are held in the UK, trustees can participate by video-conferencing, so can be based anywhere.
This is a voluntary position, but reasonable expenses can be paid.
In the first instance, please contact Alister Lownie to discuss this role:
