Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Odyssey Theatre
Odyssey Theatre -- Ottawa's premier professional open-air theatre -- is looking for people who want to get involved in the arts and join the Board of a dynamic, successful, and award-winning theatre company.

For 32 years, Odyssey has attracted thousands each summer to our Theatre Under the Stars along the Rideau River in beautiful Strathcona Park. Odyssey’s award winning productions are renowned for their use of masks, innovative staging, stylized movement and elaborate sets and costumes.

As a non-profit charity, Odyssey’s Board of Directors plays an active leadership role in helping the company achieve its strategic priorities, including: new productions in keeping with its unique artistic vision; building its profile in the community; growing resources for its productions and programs; expanding its performances nationally and internationally; and, developing its outdoor theatre facility in the park.

We are looking for creative and enthusiastic people from diverse backgrounds who have a passion for the arts and who are committed to helping this unique cultural organization continue to grow and succeed.

Volunteers should have a university or college degree or equivalent experience and several years of work experience. Prior experience on a board or committee in a not-for-profit organization would be an asset. You will join a dynamic and diverse team of people who bring a range of experience including finance, marketing, media, arts, law, fund raising, management or other relevant skills.

Board terms are for two-years with the possibility of renewal. Members attend approximately 10 Board meetings a year and are asked to get involved in a specific project or join a Committee of the Board in an area of interest to them.

If you are passionate about the arts and the role they play in building a vibrant and creative community, we would love to talk to you!
