The current Board of Directors comprises individuals with experience in Arts & Events Management, Education, Project Management, Fundraising, Technical Operations and Health and Safety.
We are particularly looking for individuals with skills in Fundraising, Marketing, Strategic Development, Business Management and Finance; ideally who are, or have been, involved in the arts, environment, education or social enterprise sectors.
We are looking for Board members that have a successful record of achievement in their field and ideally a genuine interest in children’s theatre, the arts, education and conservation of the environment.
Board members must be advocates for Eco Drama and its aims and objectives as a social enterprise, be eager to maximise their professional and personal connections to help promote and/or raise funds for the company, and be able to support Eco Drama to develop and present ambitious projects both locally and nationally.
Trustees would be required to attend 4 Board Meetings per year, lasting 2 hours each, usually on week day evenings 6-8pm at Eco Drama’s Glasgow city centre office. Trustees would also be required for a reasonable amount of contact on email/telephone when advice or skills may be sought. Eco Drama will actively seek out opportunities for training and professional development that will nurture the role of a Trustee.
Trustees are voluntary and unpaid roles, however reasonable travel expenses to and from meetings will be paid.
Becoming a Trustee with Eco Drama is a unique opportunity to make a real difference in the community and to be a hands-on part of a developing organisation, as well as adding value to your CV.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
