Common Wealth - paid opportunity to join our sounding board

Common Wealth are looking for people who live, work or love East Cardiff to join our sounding board.

We are looking for people with a diverse range of skills and knowledge, views and backgrounds to help us make, shape and grow our work here. You might be a community leader, a passionate mother or father, nan or grandad, you might be young or old, curious about the arts and theatre, or a social change warrior or looking for something new and different to do with your community.

Why?

Common Wealth are working with a UK network called Moving Roots to bring 3 shows to CF3. Each show will be tailored to this place, star local people and create job opportunities. Now, all we need is you. We don’t want to decide how this work will work, without you.

This touring program uses co-creation as a method of making work. Co-creation means that with organisational support, members of communities have agency in creating. All voices are heard, leadership is shared and we all benefit from having the support of each other to help bring our creative vision to life. 

We want to make a long-term difference. This starts with these important conversations and ends with high-quality performances that inspire, show what is possible and elevates expectations on what we expect to happen here and how we are seen.

What to expect

  • Common Wealth will meet with the Sounding Board for two hours (with cake of course), 6 times a year to oversee Moving Roots. You will be an integral part of its development, we will build the future of this project with you. 
  • Each person will be reimbursed £20 for their time at each meeting, regardless of personal circumstances. Feel free to ask us more about how this works. 
  • There will be a ‘go see fund’ to go and see co-created live performance.
  • Paid opportunities to work on our shows
  • Training in areas you’re interested in. This could be: community leadership, storytelling, creative workshop leading, sign-language. You get to decide as a group. 

Why is this important?

Because we don’t want to make the decisions without you!

We want our work to not just be relevant, we want it to be yours.

How to get involved

If you’d like to be part of the sounding board we’d LOVE to hear from you.

Please email chantal@commonwealththeatre.co.uk with a paragraph or a short video filmed on your phone about you, your connection to East Cardiff and what interests you about being a part of the Sounding Board.

DEADLINE – 9 October 2020 @ 5pm
