“Streetwise has completely changed my life” Streetwise Opera performer
Streetwise Opera is an award-winning national charity that uses music to help people make positive changes in their lives. Working with people who have experienced, or are at risk of, homelessness, we run workshop programmes across England and stage critically-acclaimed operas.
Our productions platform the skills of our performers in a professional arena, showing that whatever life throws at them, they can achieve great things. Underpinning these, our workshop programme offers a dependable source of creativity in lives where everything else can be changing.
As we embark on our new Strategic Plan, Streetwise Opera is looking for a Trustee (treasurer) with the skills, knowledge and experience to support excellent governance and oversight. We welcome applications both from people who have previous experience of board-level governance, and those who do not.
As with all charity trustees, these are unpaid roles but Streetwise Opera will cover out-of-pocket expenses. We value diversity in our work and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly those who have experienced homelessness.
