Who we are
At Talitha Arts we seek to empower individuals through therapeutic arts workshops. We believe the freedom of personal innovation and creativity can build bridges of hope for lives that have been crushed by oppression, exploitation and abuse.
Talitha Arts was founded by actor and activist Amanda Root. It began as a small volunteer organisation, primarily facilitating arts workshops to International Justice Mission in India and working with professionals in aftercare homes for girls rescued from sex trafficking and violent abuse.
Over the years our work has grown to working directly with those who have experienced trauma, abuse, violence, homelessness; ex-offenders, refugees, children, and those who are living with dementia. We also regularly facilitate church workshops.
Talitha is seeking a new Chair for our Board. The role of the Chair is to provide leadership and direction to the Board of Trustees whilst upholding Talitha’s core values. We are looking for someone who has an understanding of the work we do, as well as some previous experience of committee/trustee involvement.
Our Chair Job Description is attached.
Should you be interested in exploring this opportunity please contact Gaynor Yeomans at [email protected] . Please include your CV.
Closing date for applications is 15th July 2021.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Amanda Root (Founder and Chair Talitha Arts)
