Chair of the Board of Trustees

Thank you for your interest in becoming Chair of South East Dance at this exciting moment as we launch our activities in The Dance Space – Brighton & Hove’s new home for dance and first purpose-built dance house.

We are delighted to be looking for a Chair at such an exciting time in our development.  Our vision for The Dance Space is a place that is welcoming, accessible and safe for everybody, a civic and community building with creativity at its heart. A place that starts from the assumption that everyone is creative and that does not place value judgements on the nature of that creativity or how it is expressed. 

Cath James, Artistic Director and Rachel Gibson, Executive Director 

 

Following five successful years as Chair of South East Dance’s Board of Trustees, including overseeing the transition to becoming a building-based organisation, John Struthers will step down after handing over to the new Chair in Autumn 2022. You will join a welcoming, committed and skilled group of Trustees who champion and advocate for our work locally and regionally, sharing our passion for dance and the contribution it can make to health, wellbeing and placemaking.

 

“I have really enjoyed being Chair of South East Dance and seeing The Dance Space become a reality. The opening of The Dance Space in July will amplify all that South East Dance does to work with communities, support artists and showcase dance that offers insights into and reflection on the world we live in. I can’t think of a more exciting time to be joining South East Dance as Chair.”
