Access All Areas logo

Access All Areas is a multi-award winning theatre company, making urban, disruptive performance by learning disabled artists, rooted in our East London
community in Hackney.

We are excited to be joining the Arts Council England National Portfolio for 2018-22. The learning disabled community continues to be excluded from the cultural mainstream in the UK. We hope that now, with the support of Arts Council England, we can further develop our cutting-edge work that disrupts complacency and misconceptions surrounding learning disability.

As well as making large-scale immersive performance and touring shows, we run training to develop a new generation of learning disabled theatre makers. We also run training for other companies and theatres to help them be more accessible, and have a broad Take Part programme that helps people from our learning disabled community grow their own creativity, and improves wellbeing, communication and job-skills.

We believe passionately in the importance of including learning disabled artistic voices in society, to help create an artistic community that is made more vibrant, more varied and more relevant by including a range of voices.

Our current Treasurer is moving on from Access All Areas after five years of excellent support. We are now seeking a financial professional eligible to act as a trustee, with an interest in the creative arts, to take on this important role at a time of exciting change and increased profile. The applicant should have some knowledge of charity accounting.

All Trustees should have an interest in the performing arts. You should have a willingness to act as an ambassador for Access All Areas, along with the ability to work effectively as part of a team and build positive working relationships.

In addition to quarterly meetings and the annual AGM, our current Treasurer estimates that you will need to provide an additional 2-5 hours per month to support the company. As Access All Areas works with vulnerable adults, all Trustees are required to undertake an Enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.

To apply:
Potential Treasurers should email a CV or list of skills, along with a brief statement (maximum 1 side of A4) outlining their interest in and suitability for the role to or by post to Access All Areas, Bradbury Studios, 138 Kingsland Road, London E2 8DY.
