Development space, studio, meeting place, social network, online resource, creative hub – The Work Room is your comprehensive portal to the independent dance sector in Scotland, based out of a purpose-built studio in Glasgow’s Tramway.
We’re here to provide independent artists working in dance in Scotland with flexible, fluid, reactive support, as well as helping to strengthen exisiting networks within the creative community.
We are seeking people to join our Board in 2021, to work alongside our existing board trustees in supporting The Work Room in its mission to empower artists in making pioneering dance for diverse contexts at home and internationally.

We are working towards an Anti-Racism practice and we want the board to better reflect the diversity of our membership. In supporting this, we particularly welcome applications from:
What the role involves:
The role of the Board trustees is to support the work of The Work Room and provide leadership and strategic governance, in line with the core purpose and policies of the company. The Work Room is a charity, and our board of trustees are guided by the guidance and good practice provided by the Office of Scottish Charity Regulator
The board usually meets four times a year in addition to the AGM (Annual General Meeting) of all members. In addition to this, the board may get involved in events, training or on sub-committees. A key aspect of the role is to build a collegiate working relationship with The Work Room staff team and other board members contributing to collective and considered decision making.
