Policy Panel Callout
Deadline 4th December, 5pm
We are looking for 10 arts freelancers to make up our Policy Panel. We want to make sure the way we run Taking Flight is fair, equitable and that we represent the voices around us.
Who can apply? Freelance arts professional in Wales- you could be a facilitator, dancer, stage manager, technician, visual artist etc. In line with our work, we particularly want to hear from Deaf & disabled freelancers. We’re also keen to hear from people of colour, trans and gender non binary people and other people who’ve struggled to have their creative voices represented.
What will I be doing? You will attend up to 6 half day sessions between December 2020 and April 2021. Sessions will be online or at our Cardiff base. People from other areas of Wales can attend real life sessions digitally.
What are the sessions for? You will be helping to shape the policies and working practices of Taking Flight. We want to work with a variety of people to shape and influence the way we work that better serves the Wales we live in
The Panel will meet roughly once a month to work on developing an existing or new policy or set of guidelines- for example our Equality and Diversity Policy, our recruitment procedure etc. You will be facilitated in a discussion around certain policies to reach a set of recommendations for us.
What will I be paid? You will be paid £150 for each half day session. There will be breaks scheduled into the session.
We will provide access as required by the panel.
How do I apply? Write a letter or send a video in English, British Sign Language or Welsh to firstname.lastname@example.org Make sure you explain what your work is and if you have faced any barriers to developing your career. Let us know if you have any experience in arts admin (it’s OK if you don’t) and attach a CV if you have one. You are welcome to contact us with questions as well as applications.
