What is Co-Leadership at Boundless?
Boundless was founded 22 years ago and has always put co-creation with 15-25 year olds at the centre of its work. Now we’re ready to go further and so in 2023 and 2024 we are recruiting 4 co-leaders to job share with our Artistic Director & CEO and Executive Director.
These new roles are jobs, with lots of training and support but with real decision making responsibilities. Our new Co-Artistic Director & CEO and Co-Executive Director will help us find new ways to support our community of young adults around the UK.
It is a big shake-up of our leadership structure and programme of work alongside exciting plans for the year ahead, following the confirmation of our Arts Council England NPO funding. We will continue to disrupt the conventional means of engaging in the arts as a teenager and young adult and will continue to champion the cultural voice of young people in the UK. Our vision going forwards is to cultivate a new approach to sustain change within the industry for 15-25 year olds.

Throughout 2023 and 2024 we’ll be sharing more about our Co-Leadership work on our social channels @boundlessabound and through out newsletter which you can subscribe to here.
We’ll be opening for applications in early 2024 for two more co-leaders and if you’d like to discuss any of our work or learn more then please email email@example.com
