We are seeking Advisory Board Members!

Would you like to have an influential role in developing the work of one of Southampton’s leading arts organisations? We are looking for new members to join our Advisory Board as part of our governance team.

What it involves

This role invites you to share your opinions, experiences and skills to influence how we deliver our dance theatre activity in Southampton and beyond by:

  • Attending four or five two-hour meetings a year at an accessible venue in Southampton (some meetings may happen online);
  • Attending selected performances for free;
  • Offering advice, and championing ZoieLogic Dance Theatre’s work.

The role is voluntary with travel expenses and access costs (including childcare) paid.

About us

ZoieLogic Dance Theatre, led by founding Artistic Director Zoie Golding, challenges perceptions of what dance is, who it is for and how it is presented. We’re on a mission to get more people involved in dance, especially men and boys and those less likely to see or take part in the arts.

We make this happen by creating and touring professional dance theatre shows, and through our outreach, engagement, and talent development programmes. 2020 is our anniversary year.

Our friendly team values openness, creativity, curiosity and fun!

Here’s what we’ve been up to recently:

Who we are looking for
  • We welcome interest from people based in the Southampton area who are passionate about the city and the people in it. Also from those outside of the Southampton area who are interested in dance and the arts.
  • We want our board to reflect the diversity of our local community, and we especially welcome expressions of interest from underrepresented voices in dance and the arts, including disabled, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse members of our community.
  • We are particularly looking for people who want to advise us with their experience of living or working in the city, as we seek to work with communities in the areas of Holyrood, Weston Shore, Redbridge and Mansbridge for the next two years.
If you have one or more of the following attributes, this could be the opportunity for you!
  • A passion for Southampton
  • Local knowledge of communities in the city
  • Enthusiasm for the arts/dance
  • Strong communication skills
  • Willingness to actively champion our work!
