Become the first BATS Board Youth Intern!

Are you:

  • Passionate about Arts organisation governance;

  • keen to get exposure to board dynamics and practices;

BATS Theatre is offering the opportunity to observe and participate on the board for a year (beginning from the date of the 2019 BATS Theatre AGM, Monday May 20) with a view to gaining exposure to new talent and the benefits a different perspective can bring.  If you are selected as the BATS Board Intern, you will:

  • participate as a board member in all aspects but will have no voting rights and will not form part of the quorum of a board meeting; and

  • receive travel reimbursement and dinner on meeting nights.
