Jungle Theatre was established as an NPO in 2004 to inspire and empower disadvantaged children and youth to make positive changes in their lives and build a peaceful and vibrant South Africa.

Jungle Theatre Company is looking for a new Board member to join their creative team.

This is a voluntary role in the organisation and is not remunerated. 

JTC’s professional artistic team from diverse communities draw on South Africa’s cultural heritage and indigenous languages to find connections to the environment and human nature, creating and performing original accessible African children’s theatre shows that bring together music, dance, masks, puppets, clowning and storytelling. These performances raise awareness, inspire learning and motivate children and youth to participate in workshops and performing arts training resulting in; developing life skills; building self-confidence and creating opportunities. We partner with educational, social, environmental, health and arts organisations and get financial support from government, private trusts, foundations and individuals.

We are looking for someone who will be able to add value to our organisation; has a keen interest in the performing arts sector; has an understanding of the non-profit sector and expertise in one or more of the following areas: education; environment; cultural heritage; finances; marketing; fundraising; networking or life skills.

The Jungle Board currently consists of four members and we are looking to increase it up to a minimum of five and maximum of seven members. Board meetings take place twice a year i.e. in September and February with our AGM taking place in May. However, over and above attending Board meetings, we expect our Board members to be actively involved in the work that we do in an advisory capacity and to be able to give a reasonable amount of their time and attention to the organisation.
