Join Our Board

Face Front is on the look out for new trustees.

Using their experience and knowledge to provide guidance, Trustees help Face Front to continue being a high profile Inclusive Theatre Company.

If you have a passion for participatory theatre, have energy and time to commit, we’d love to hear from you, especially if you have skills and experience in marketing, publicity, fundraising or legal affairs.

Trustees are collectively responsible for ensuring good governance of Face Front – overseeing financial management and ensuring that the company complies with Charity and Company Law.

You’d have to be over 18 and it helps if you’ve got previous experience as a Trustee, but the main thing is to have ideas, energy and dedication. We can organise training.

Trustees are expected to attend quarterly board meetings (usually evenings, at our studio in Edmonton, North London) and some regular or topic specific sub-committees, be available either by phone or email between meetings from time to time.

It’s also great if you can come to workshops and performances occasionally.

Inclusion is at the heart of our artistic vision and we welcome applications from people who are currently under-represented, particularly in terms of ethnic and disability diversity.

If you share our vision, please get in touch.

For more information please contact Ray Downing (Artistic Director) email: ray@facefront.org or telephone our office on 020 8350 3461.

‘I think face Front gives opportunities to people whose voices are seldom heard by mainstream society – In this day and age, the voices of the disadvantaged should be heard. Plus I like coming here and working with all sorts of people with different experiences and lifestyles.’

‘I was introduced drama at 18 as an apprentice welder in a shipyard and now as a holder of a freedom pass I am still passionate about it. As a head of drama I was always very appreciative of Face Front and what you brought into my school. How you helped educate my classes. I acknowledge the quality of the work and enjoy being part of a great team.’

‘Theatre is often seen as an elitist pastime but at Face Front, theatre really contributes to people’s lives and empowers people to live their lives through drama and participation and gives people a real voice in contributing to and changing their lives and the lives of others.’

‘I’m involved with Face Front because I love theatre I love the power of theatre to affect people and Face Front works with and for people who are disabled or disadvantaged, or young people facing emotional difficulties and it does that in a very professional way providing powerful theatre with a social benefit. It’s a great combination.’

‘The joy for me is that it brings people together who would not normally be together – Interaction particularly. You might spend your whole life and not meet someone disabled – you could spend you whole life and not know someone of a different culture to you. The young don’t usually mix with with the older – especially nowadays where everything is so separated – and the wonder is that we do all get to know each other and we would not normally have the opportunity to do that and the second wonder is nothing ever happens that we are not involved in. We are a part of it, we think about it, we decide what we are going to do, we write it and the quality of it, by the time its all put together with Face Front’s expertise and experience is just great. I go about and people are constantly talking to me because I was the witch of Edmonton! I have a reputation now that goes far and wide! The point is they remember the show and how good it was. The quality of it all is superb and most of us don’t get the chance to be a part of something like that. In another group you might be given a script and told to do it – but in Face Front you ARE it and that’s the wonder.’

‘We give employment to actors with learning and physical disabilities if you look at equity (actor’s union) there are very few disabled people employed – yet we employ lots of disabled artists.’
