Trustee Recruitment – June 2018

Montage Theatre Arts are looking for up to three enthusiastic trustees to join our board! 

About MTA:
Montage Theatre Arts (MTA) is a performing arts charity based in Deptford, South-East London and was established in 1998. The charity is managed by General Manager, Emma Hobday, a small team of office personnel and the Board of Trustees. The company runs 37 weekly classes in performing arts, plus holiday courses for young people and projects with the elderly from the local community. With a respected track record for offering excellent and vital opportunities, MTA continues to help people from a highly diverse area acquire techniques and skills, develop confidence and social ability, whilst also breaking down barriers between cultural groups and generations.

MTA’s office is based at the Albany in Deptford, a lively community building housing many small arts and charitable organisations, as well as its own notable theatre. The office is run as a ‘creative hub’; a lively workspace with friendly staff, who are keen to develop ideas and share skills.

Montage’s full programme takes place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays after school and on Saturday at Prendergast Hilly Fields College in Brockley. A team of freelance teachers, overseen by our Youth Programme Manager, lead classes of up to 25 children with the support of volunteer assistants. MTA students also regularly take part in other performances, such as local community events including Lewisham People’s Day and Brockley Max.

Trustees report to the Chair and other Trustees, who meet 4 – 6 times a year.
