34 people are interested
We seek to expand our Board of Directors. We are especially interested in adding women and people of color to our Board, and individuals with fundraising and networking abilities.
Imagine Project is Los Angeles’ new and only Equity theatre dedicated entirely to programming for children. In fact, we are only the second such theatre in the entire State of California.
IP is proud to operate at the highest standards of professionalism, creating theatrical experiences by artists who are members of Actors’ Equity Association, United Scenic Artists, and Society of Directors & Choreographers, the national unions for stage artists.
MISSION: Imagine Project strives to build an empathetic and inclusive society, across cultures, by immersing young people in theatre that celebrates gender equity, diversity, and civic engagement.
To do that, we commit to choosing programming that reflects the voices of the underserved members of our community, and hiring local artists that are representative of the diverse population of our city.
Did you know that there are 2.3 million kids in LA County?!
This is a very challenging time for our nation and for the arts. That is why the investment in teaching our children to look at the world with erudition, understanding, and empathy is paramount. The health of our communal soul is directly tied to how we rear our children, and engagement in quality storytelling is critical to the kind of citizens our children become.
At Imagine Project, we believe that strong governance is imperative to our ability to make a powerful and lasting impact on our local community. Board service is an excellent and hands-on way to get involved with your community, and have an on-going engagement with Imagine Project artists and patrons, while gaining a deeper understanding of theatre for young audiences and building a personal legacy.
- Two complimentary tickets to the Opening Night of each production in the Imagine Project season, and two complimentary tickets to each production in that season.
- Recognition in Imagine Project programs and website.
Be a Part of the Magic from the Beginning!
By becoming a board member now, you will be a part of a much needed theatrical establishment from the very beginning. Our inaugural season is set for November 2019. Joining the IP Board today will cement your legacy as an arts advocate by helping bring our very first production to Los Angeles’ younger audiences.
IP is still a startup nonprofit that began operations a little over two years ago. A passion for our mission, strong ties to the community, access to professional associations, and an expedited commitment to raise funds is a must.
