ABOUT FACE THEATRE COLLECTIVE

AFT_logo

The Pitch
Has a powerful story ever changed your perspective or understanding? We create
theatre to open hearts and minds in powerful ways and to move toward a better
future. AFT board members can help amplify the most underrepresented voices in our
LGBTQIA community, and help create a brave space for our youth to explore
creativity, leadership, and social change. This has been life-changing and life-saving.

Programs
Our programs include: (1) LGBTQIA+ equity theatre productions; (2) a reading series
(to support new works by AFT Artistic Associates and emerging artists); (3) an
education department (that includes About Face Youth Theatre, touring programs,
and leadership development. (Programming is currently online due to COVID).
Could be a good fit for a board candidate who embodies the following
We seek members who are passionate about our mission, support LBGTQIA+ issues,
believe in the power of theatre, and who are motivated to serve a community. We seek
members who bring joy and positivity along with professional skills, strong networks,
and a readiness to raise resources and build connections. We seek leaders, creative
thinkers, problem-solvers, self-starters and reliable colleagues with strong execution
and follow-through tendencies. We care about equity and social justice, and seek
members who will serve AFT’s mission in alignment with our values. Skills of all kinds
welcomed (fundraising/development, HR, strategic planning, finance, marketing,
special events, NFP/arts/theatre/education/youth sector experiences).

Financial and Fundraising Commitment
Regular Board Members are expected to make a personal contribution that is
significant and meaningful, however, AFT does not have a defined contribution
requirement. Board members are encouraged to support the mission by connecting
AFT to resources, networks, opportunities and new communities.
