Board composition
It’s more important than ever that Theatre Forum’s board is a broadly representative one. To achieve this, the nomination of candidates from theatre, dance, opera, festival and venue organisations as well as independent and freelance artists is encouraged. A reasonable geographic spread plus an emphasis on gender balance are important considerations too.
