Odd Eyes Theatre nurtures beauty in diversity. We make theatre that tells stories about people standing out from the crowd. We look at the world from different angles and use theatre to share unique point of views with equally unique audiences.
Odd Eyes Theatre promotes communication across cultures. By cultural groups we mean people from diverse socio-economic backgrounds as much as those from different nationalities and ethnic groups. We open dialogue through theatre productions, professional development and community programmes.
Odd Eyes is coming to the end of its current three-year Business Plan, and is looking for a facilitator to guide two sessions with the current Board and Management to develop the plan for the next three years. The sessions will take place on:
Saturday 8th April, 11am – 4pm
Saturday 22nd April, 10am – 2pm
The ideal candidate will have experience in facilitation / consultancy and be able to structure and guide thinking and planning, facilitate discussion and supply the tools needed for the company to plan positively and proactively for the next three years.
We do not expect the facilitator to write the Business Plan, but we do expect, at the end of the two sessions, to have documented a consensus of thinking that will allow us to write a clear and structured plan ourselves.
We are a small charity, and so this is a voluntary position, although we will, of course, cover travel expenses.
If you are interested, please email email@example.com with your CV and a short covering letter and proposal.
Odd Eyes Theatre is an international and intra-cultural theatre company with charitable status. We create multi-layered productions that play around with visual and verbal communication transposing the ever changing face of individuality, human relationships and cultural values into theatre language.
Our plays tell stories that echo the experience of new, unrepresented audiences and share it with all theatre goers. Odd Eyes Theatre’ participation programmes offer a creative hub to migrants, first generation British and individuals who are moving away from their culture of origin and refuse to categorise themselves allowing them to express their diversity, share beliefs and build skills to assert their role in the social context in which they live.
