We are seeking new board members, including a treasurer, to join the volunteer Board of the not-for-profit dance organisation - Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE). We are looking for people with the requisite skills and experience who will enjoy contributing to a dynamic and developing incorporated association and registered charity that champions arts practice by mature community members. 

About MADE

MADE is a frontrunner in mature arts in Australia, and the only company dedicated to the educative/health aspects of mature dance AND to an ongoing program of public performance of mature contemporary dance works. Established in 2005, MADE is a not-for-profit Tasmanian-based arts organisation that partners professional artists with non-professional dancers to create and present visually beautiful contemporary dance. These works are performed by people aged 50 and over, often in non-traditional performance spaces. We create opportunities to showcase the power of dance and to show the mature artist as a creative, energetic force in, and engaged with, the world.

Call out for new Board members

We are keen to hear from suitably qualified and experienced people with an interest in MADE’s work and with skills to offer us from across the professional spectrum, including the arts, health, governance, law, communications, and finance. We particularly encourage applications from First Nations people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people who identify as LGBTQIA+.The existing Board is very friendly, supportive and passionate. As a volunteer Board Director for a not-for-profit organisation, you will be supporting the arts and older people, be available for approximately six meetings per year and be prepared to make a contribution for a term of three years. We are based in Hobart but may consider applications from applicants based in other locations.
