Board Shadowing Programme
Providing a tangible insight into leadership at governance level in multiple leading theatre in the UK.
Our award-winning ADF Board Shadowing Programme is a first of its kind initiative, taking place in arts organisations across the UK. This unique programme offers our ADF Members the exclusive opportunity to shadow a consortium of arts boards. The programme won ADF the Innovation Award for The Stage Awards 2020.
The ADF Board Shadowing programme is designed to demystify the roles and responsibility of the board, broker relationships with aspiring trustees and create an even playing field for near future opportunities.
We recognise that every board varies in capacity, operation and style, therefore, our seven-month programme provides 8-10 Black, Asian, and People of Colour ADF members with tangible experience at up-to 5 arts venues/organisations to examine what type of board is right for them.
In partnership with Artistic Directors of the Future and five leading Yorkshire theatres, learn more about the experience from those who took part in the inaugural ADF Board Shadowing Programme: Yorkshire Edition.
We secured a consortium of 3 of the most ground-breaking theatre companies to provide our ADF members with a seat at the boardroom table.
Applications for the Board Shadowing Programme will open in winter 2021. To keep up to date and to be the first to find out sign up to become a member and be added to our mailing list.
