We are looking for people who are interested in becoming a member or a volunteer at our Cardiff choir, to form a ‘Launch Committee’ and help us kick off the choir and give it the best chance of success.
The purpose of the committee is for the Choir with No Name to learn from people with relevant experience when launching, so that we can make sure that our choir members and volunteers have the best possible experience.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a mixture of people for the Cardiff Launch Committee, including:
- People with lived experience of homelessness
- People with experience of working with homelessness projects
- People with experience of running music or arts projects
Committee members would be asked to…
- Attend monthly committee meetings while the choir is launching and for the first three months of rehearsals
- Attend rehearsals regularly during this period (this is important as it allows you to give us feedback about rehearsals)
- Assist us with recruitment of key staff and volunteers
Committee members would help…
- Spread the word about the choir
- Audition a Choir Director
- Create role descriptions/adverts for volunteers
- Give us feedback on how rehearsals could be improved
- Make our rehearsals as welcoming as possible
How it works...
The Choir with No Name will arrange and run each committee meeting. The meetings will be held in central Cardiff to make them easy to get to.
We will provide everything needed for the meetings and light refreshments.
What will you get out of it?
We are really excited about starting Choir with No Name Cardiff and hope you will be too! Being part of this committee will give you the chance to use your experience to shape a unique project in Cardiff, which will help people going through a tough time in our community.
At Choir everybody’s welcoming and we like to look after each other. I enjoy feeling like I can offer some support and guidance to other members, because I’ve been where they are. Since being in the choir I’ve managed to get through a difficult part of my life and now I feel able to say to others ‘this is what you can do, because this is what worked for me. - Steve, CWNN Bimingham member
Being part of a committee like this one is a valuable experience. It can help to grow communication and organisational skills, and is a great addition to a CV.
Finally, we hope you’ll enjoy being a part of our community - both within the committee and the choir.
