Silo Theatre Board Recruitment — Looking for Expressions of Interest

We are seeking four new Trustees, including potentially a Chair, to join us on the next exciting phase of our journey.

Silo Theatre is a leading producer of contemporary theatre in Aotearoa.

We curate an annual season of local and international work that champions new forms of storytelling in order to speak directly to the world around us.

Our shows take place across a selection of venues and spaces in Tāmaki Makaurau, in Aotearoa and sometimes overseas.

Our purpose is to:
– Encourage the pursuit of excellence in Aotearoa New Zealand’s arts practitioners and stage craft
– Foster greater inclusion and representation in storytelling and invigorate diverse audiences
– Contribute to, and develop, the arts and the culture landscape of Tāmaki Makaurau and Aotearoa

Trustees need to have a strong vision for the future, an instinct for making considered decisions that push boundaries, and naturally embodies our commitment to Te Tiriti as well as our values of excellence, manaakitanga, innovation, inclusion and courage.

In keeping with our wider purpose the Board is seeking to diversify its lens, in particular across Māori, Pasifika, and Asian perspectives.

Collectively, the Trust seeks members who bring diverse gender, personal qualities, professional expertise and personal experiences to ensure its deliberations incorporate insights from a variety of perspectives and ways of thinking to support sound, collaborative decision-making.

The Board meets every two months, sometimes more frequently. Trustees are also expected to attend events such as show openings or Patron nights.

This is a voluntary (unpaid) position. Our Trustees are asked to commit to at least one term of 2 years. It is estimated that the position of Silo Theatre Trustee will take up four hours per month.
