Trustees provide the backbone that supports everything we do in the community. We want people who have mad, idealistic ideas for making the world, or just our little bit of it to start with, into a kinder, gentler, funnier place - and who want to get stuck in with like-minded people to make it happen, with real practical plans.
• We need someone who can chair meetings effectively – moving the agenda along, ensuring that everything is covered and that action points are decided. Hippy-dippy artists are not known for their ability to chair a meeting and make decisions. If you're good at that stuff then we really, really want to hear from you.

The Chair will also make sure things get done, so if we say we'll do something, you'll make sure we actually do it! We have lots of great ideas and want to make sure they all bear fruit.
