SEEKING NEW BOARD MEMBERS

BLINDSPOT COLLECTIVE

  • 4 people are interested

Blindspot Collective seeks board members to join the Board of Directors of our rapidly growing theatre company focused on the development of new work that serves traditionally marginalized or underserved communities. Our previous work has highlighted the experiences of people of color; refugees and immigrants; people with disabilities; and LGBTQ youth. Past projects include a production with La Jolla Playhouse for the Without Walls Festival, an artistic residency at the San Diego Airport, and a collaboration with A Reason to Survive (ARTS) that presented local tours of Blindspot Collective's productions. We are looking for passionate, committed, and experienced leaders who are excited by the opportunity to directly impact the development of an emerging company. In collaboration with a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, board members participate in quarterly board meetings and monthly committee meetings that include direct work related to programming, fundraising, community development, and institutional growth. To learn more, contact co-founder Blake McCarty directly at blake@blindspotcollective.org

Mission Statement

MISSION: To produce radically inclusive programming at the intersection of advocacy, education, and entertainment that cultivates and celebrates new work, emerging artists, diverse audiences, and fresh ideas. VISION: Transformative theatre that amplifies marginalized voices, illuminates untold stories, bridges disparate experiences, and energizes vulnerable communities.

Description

Blindspot Collective is committed to work that serves and represents those in the blindspot - people who may have never participated in the performing arts, never seen a reflection of themselves on stage, or never even seen a work of theatre.

Since its founding in 2017, Blindspot Collective has produced work in partnership with The Old Globe, Diversionary Theatre, San Diego Musical Theatre, Bocón Arts, and other community partners. Most recently, the organization was the first theatre company to be awarded a performing arts residency at the San Diego International Airport. Other projects: Safa's Story, a forum theatre play for elementary and middle school students that encourages cultural sensitivity and racial injustice; Qulili, a documentary play based on the stories of local refugees; The Magic in this Soul, a new play about discrimination and resilience that won the Audience Favorite Award at the 2018 San Diego Fringe Festival; Danny’s Story, a work of Forum Theatre for high school audiences about transgender youth; Untold, a verbatim play about mental illness that won the Dunn‐Rankin Award for New Work at the 2017 San Diego Fringe Festival; and Hall Pass, an immersive musical about high school produced in partnership with the Playwrights Horizons Theater Company and Theater School in New York City.
