Ragged Edge Productions are seeking new Trustees to increase the skills, knowledge and lived experience of our Board and to support our work in the years ahead.
While we are keen to hear from anyone with an interest in developing work in Cumbria and rural touring more generally, we particularly encourage applications from people with disability, people from culturally and socio-economically diverse backgrounds, young people and people who identify as LGBTQIA+.
We are also specifically seeking candidates with these skills:
- Community based projects
- Press and communications including digital marketing
- Growing organisations
- We are also open to what you might like to offer us!
About Ragged Edge Productions
Ragged Edge is an award-winning theatre company making entertaining and engaging shows which take a fresh look at current issues and ideas. We celebrate the power and creativity of theatre with quality shows at a time when funding for the arts is scarce. We take theatre to places on the edge of arts provision, in our countryside, towns and cities.
In its work Ragged Edge recognises that the local delivery of live performing arts is really important in maintaining the quality of life in a thriving rural community. It provides access to the arts for those that may not have the means to travel (particularly important in economically challenging times). We aim to be relevant to and appeal to rural communities and their culture.
We produce work for rural touring as well as theatres and community spaces. Recent activity includes a range of Audio Adventures – both professional performances and participatory projects working with community groups.
The Role of the Trustee
Ragged Edge is a registered charity (no. 1164255). The Trustees are legally responsible for the organisation. As a Trustee, you will help ensure that Ragged Edge complies with its governing documents and legal requirements, as well as supporting the company’s work. You will bring an external perspective and help the organisation in a way that suits your skills. You will act as an ambassador for Ragged Edge. There are four Trustee meetings each year, usually held in Cumbria but we have also met via Zoom. Take a look at the Ragged Edge Website here: https://raggededgeproductions.co.uk
