Description:

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a very successful and established Canadian dance & theatre company based in Toronto, ON. Part of our mission statement is to bring live performances to public spaces globally. 

The volunteer Board of Directors interacts, advises and collaborates with the Artistic Director and team. Aside from its legal and fiduciary responsibilities, the board helps CORPUS to fulfil its purpose and helps to develop the organization. Members are elected annually and are expected to commit to at least a two-year term. The board meets between four to six times annually – due to COVID meets via Zoom until further notice. 

RESPONSIBILITIES: 

- prepare for, attend, and participate in all board meetings;  

- leverage connections, networks, and resources for the benefit of the company; 

- stay informed about the organization and attend at least one performance annually; 

- have an awareness on developments in the organization’s sector; 

- assist with fundraising activities, including ticket sales; 

The ideal candidate will be familiar with and have a passion for CORPUS’ work. A range of board competencies is being sought, and those expressing interest are encouraged to share how their background, interest and expertise might bring benefit to the board. We are looking for someone with integrity, honesty, sensitivity and a tolerance for different viewpoints. As we are based in Toronto, the ideal candidate should be located in the greater Toronto area, but we will consider other jurisdictions.  

CORPUS is deeply committed to promoting diversity, advancing equity and fostering a culture of inclusion. Therefore, we invite applications from marginalized and equity-seeking groups, particularly members of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), Trans, Non-Binary, and LGBTQ2S.
