Vacature Coördinator Inspringtheater

Vacature Coördinator Inspringtheater, 10 uur/week

Het Inspringtheater
Het Inspringtheater is de theatergroep van Stichting Boerengroep. In samenwerking met Boerengroep en in opdracht van agrarische organisaties en/of de WUR maken we interactieve theateroptredens over actuele maatschappelijke (landbouw-) thema’s. Hierbij krijgt het publiek de mogelijkheid om in de huid van de personages te kruipen, hun problemen te ervaren en diverse oplossingen uit te proberen. Zo kan het Inspringtheater gevoelige onderwerpen op een luchtige manier bespreekbaar maken en begrip creëren voor de rol van andere partijen.

We zijn op zoek naar een coördinator om leiding te geven aan deze theatergroep, bestaande uit (oud-) studenten, i.s.m. een professionele regisseur. Als coördinator organiseer je activiteiten zoals optredens, workshops, trainingen e.d. en onderhoud je contact met spelers, regisseurs en opdrachtgevers. Het betreft een betaalde functie voor 10 uur per week.

capcheck

After 2020, a new version of the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will come into practice. This spring, the discussion on how this new version of the CAP should look like has started. Boerengroep is following the progress closely, as the CAP impacts the life of farmers all over Europe. The 6th of April, Boerengroep was present at an open consultation by the ministry of Economic Affairs in Kamerik. The 11th of May, we travelled to Brussel for an international symposium. Two interesting days, promising a complicated but important discussion on the renewal of the CAP in the coming years.
