Potential Trustees Open Evening


Event details

Thu 18 April 2024 • 6:00pm – 7:30pm

For over 40 years, Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) has been creating unforgettable events and participatory experiences that have been thrilling audiences, bringing life to public spaces and inspiring and enabling people’s creativity. 

We are seeking additional board members with commitment, passion and expertise to help us deliver our ambitious plans for the future. 

We already reach more than 1 million people every year, plus a further 20,000 who attend our workshops, and have a national and international reputation for excellent site specific and touring work, community and cultural celebrations and interactive performances in the public realm. We are an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation (NPO), but most of our income comes from a diverse source of wonderful clients and generous funders.

We have a brilliant and dedicated staff team, a big family of artists, creatives, technicians and practitioners, as well as a dynamic, diverse board and a well-managed financial picture. 

All we’re missing now... is you!

Ideally you have a strong interest in, or are involved in the creative industries, arts, culture or heritage sector: as an artist, creative worker or a keen audience member. Undoubtedly you passionate about charities and the difference they make to society.

Or perhaps you have something new and different to bring to the table – a unique perspective or background that will encourage us to think in new ways about the way that we work and the work that we make.


Come and try us out!

We’ll be holding an open evening via Zoom on Thursday 18th April 2024, 6pm till 7.30pm where you will have an opportunity to meet the other Trustees, the Management Team and find out a bit more about us and tell us a bit more about you. If you would like to join this session, please RSVP to [email protected] or if that date doesn’t work for you, get in touch and we’ll find a time that does.

“I joined the EEA board when I was 25 years old, and it was my first time being a Trustee. I’ve been so supported and nurtured that now, I’m the Chair of the board. Forget about big boardrooms or wearing suits, joining the EEA board is like coming into a big supportive sports team or drama ensemble - it’s nurturing and fun, rather than scary or alienating. I’ve done everything from conducting financial reviews to being part of an EEA artwork! The experience is broad and the more you throw yourself into it, the more rewarding it is.” 

Dana Segal, Chair, EEA
