M:ADE is always seeking new members to join our board. This is a voluntary position that requires a passion for community development and the local area of Moray. Attendance at quarterly meetings is necessary, face to face if possible (usually on a Sunday afternoon with lunch!).
This roles involves advising on strategy, fundraising, operations and development of the organisation as well as commenting on and provoking discussion around issues from governance to programming.
We are particularly keen to engage those with experience across business development, finance and legal. Expressions of interest can be sent via email at any time, with an attached CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org
We know from experience how hard it can be to gain experience in the creative industries. Please get in touch if we can help you in anyway.
This year, for the first time, we have our own Mentee, student Archie Gee from Elgin Academy. Archie will be mentored by MADE for a year and will fulfil a paid internship in the Summer, thanks to the Career Ready Programme.
MADE are committed to supporting local interest and talent, so if you are an individual, organisation or initiative that thinks we can support you - let us know.
Stacey Toner, Creative Director of M:ADE, is an accredited LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) Facilitator, trained by Michael Fearne, author of 'The LSP Method'. Based on a set of fundamental beliefs about leadership and organisational running, the LSP Method allows people to be part of 'big' conversations and take ownership of ideas through workshops focused on team building, visioning, solving problems and/or strategic planning.
This approach to workshopping enables teams to 'lean in' to discussions, which results in more meaningful engagement, active participation/sharing, and strengthened peer dynamics. Sessions are based on the concept of 'hand knowledge', where 'doing' helps facilitate thinking and communication.
If you think this approach could be of use to your group or organisation, please email an outline of your needs and we will get back to you about how we might be able to help: email@example.com
