The Business of Culture – Trustee Information Day

Event Details

Join us Thursday 21 March for our Business of Culture – Trustee Information Day event, a unique collaboration between Dorset Chamber and Pavilion Dance Southwest (PDSW) in an exclusive Board matching session.

This event aims to unite Dorset Chamber businesses with local arts charities/not for profits, fostering discussions about the rewarding experience of volunteering as a Trustee and facilitating positive conversations that may lead to impactful appointments.

With approximately 20 arts charities/not for profits participating, the event will feature insightful talks from charity/not for profits, trustee, and business perspectives. Guest speakers Toby Marden, Former Senior Development Manager at Muse Places & PDSW Trustee, David Lockwood, CEO at Arts Development Company (Dorchester), and Steve Place, Senior Advisor at Community Action Network, will be in attendance discussing key topics such as becoming a charity/not for profits trustee, the benefits to your organisation and charities, and what involved in being a charity/not for profits trustee.

The event will include a networking buffet lunch, providing businesses an opportunity to explore charity/not for profits information stalls, engage with staff, and discover the incredible work these charities/not for profits contribute to the community.

Don't miss this chance to connect, collaborate, and make a meaningful impact. Book your place today!
