Les possibilités de bénévolat

Organisme : 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 Directors of a dynamic, successful, and award-winning theatre company.

For 34 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.

In particular, we are seeking a new Board member to help us to expand our networks and partnerships with the corporate sector. This new Board position would play a leadership role in helping us to:
- identify potential corporate partners in the community;
- build and expand our networks to local business;
- develop strategies to engage the local business community;
- plan events that would provide networking opportunities and deepen our relationships with corporate partners.

The volunteer should have experience and networks in the private sector. 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.

We welcome 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.

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