New Independent Board Member

We are delighted to announce that João Maio is joining our board as an independent representative.

João is an independent dance artist and creative producer based in Leeds. He has worked with companies such as Carlos Pons Guerra’s DeNada Dance Theatre and Rosie Kay Dance Company.

After completing an MA in Dance and Creative Enterprise, and the 2018 UK tour of Rosie Kay Dance Company’s MK Ultra,  João  started working part-time as a Creative Producer for Open Source Arts, a grass-roots community development organisation.

João joins us at the end of the month as we say goodbye to Rachel Fullegar of Gracefool Collective as she comes to the end of her term on the board.

The Independent Board Member place is now a 12 month appointment and we are developing activity to engage with more independent voices.
