Old Diorama Arts Centre

Named in homage to our iconic original home, Old Diorama Arts Centre (ODAC) has a long and radical history supporting London’s creative ecology and communities in Camden. In the 1970s, The Diorama building by Regent’s Park was occupied by a collective of artists, who made it widely known as a place for arts, craft, theatre, concerts, raves and more. Several buildings later, and now housed in a purpose-built complex at the Regent’s Place campus, our studios and offices are home to a busy schedule of rehearsals, workshops, readings, castings, film and photo shoots, and events.

We’re a lively hub of performing arts development, where West End rehearsals and big-name castings nestle alongside new work by emerging artists and local groups – and everything in between. ODAC reopened in its 40th anniversary as a charity, with Daniel Pitt as Creative Director & CEO. We’ve been developing and reasserting what we are, and what we can be:

Old Diorama Arts Centre is a charity nurturing creative ecosystems. Working in and around Euston for over 40 years, we’re an arts creation and community centre where the local, international and interdisciplinary intertwine. We produce the conditions needed for new collaborations to form, ideas to be brought to life and communities to thrive through creativity.

Our intertwining strands of programme are focussed on:

  • Provision of affordable space for the live arts, creative industries and local communities to make, explore and meet.
  • Arts-led social action and participation projects for residents our local Regent’s Park ward.
  • Artistic development, exploring innovative and interdisciplinary forms, as part of London’s Knowledge Quarter.

We are looking to recruit 3 or 4 new Trustees to join the Board. We are open to all applications from interested people, but we are particularly keen to recruit Trustees with the following experiences:

  • Subsidised-sector performing arts leadership

  • Commercial creative industries leadership (including TV, film and theatre)

  • London Borough of Camden social and/or arts based charity management and networks

  • Part of/working with the Regent’s Park ward/Euston communities and developments

  • Professional financial management – a Treasurer

  • Socially-engaged artistic practice

The Maverick Theatre Company

Maverick is a registered charity and is all about access, particularly for working class and underrepresented communities.  New audiences to plays, events, publishing, radio, podcasts, films, drama and literature.  And new practitioners – actors, writers, directors, backstage and technical.

It was started on a council estate in inner-city Birmingham and launched by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham in 1994.  We started producing plays in informal spaces – mainly pubs.  Working-class writer and founder Nick Hennegan created Maverick’s original proposition. “Forget the TV for a night.  Don’t rent a film.  Come down the pub and see a show.  It’s where it all started.  No retakes, no cameras, no going back, just live action with real people right in front of you.  Have a pint and a pie and if you don’t like it you can have your money back.”

Maverick has always been a bit… well… maverick!  We’ve started – pub theatre in Birmingham; accessible Shakespeares in Edinburgh and on tour; AirPlay new radio scripts; the Rocket Writers playwriting group; Urban Writers Retreats; The Maverick Academy; The People’s Theatre Company; The Literary London Radio Show on Resonance 104.4fm;The Maverick Youth Academy; The SpeakEasy Cabaret; Creative Producer Workshops and a new Diploma in Creative Producing; The Literary Pub Crawls; BohemianBritain.com – all designed to increase access to theatre and the performing arts.

“I started seeing plays at the Billesley pub. You done great. I see theatre often now thanks to maverick. I know its about money, but the councils should pay you to come back. Me and my kids are better because of maverick. Cheers mate. Ed.”

Twinned with the mission to create a new theatre-going habit with socially excluded and working-class communities in Birmingham, London and the wider community, is a desire to include and encourage new, working-class artists and technicians nationwide. Many successful theatre professionals have started their careers with the Maverick Theatre Company.

We are now working in London and Birmingham and have created the London Literary Pub Crawl –  a promenade literary tour of Soho in central London.  Our Pocket Classics are allowing new audiences to experience great classic works in an accessible form. We’re giving anyone and everyone a chance to experience any aspect of theatre with free training with our People’s Theatre Company. We have a Literary Radio Show and Podcasts. And before Covid, we were running our spoken word nights, The SpeakEasy Cabaret, on the first Saturday of every month, in a pub!

As we recover and rebuild from the pandemic, we want to safeguard our aims and ethos by building on our  independent voluntary board of trustees.

With the Board of Trustees’ help we intend to create a sustainable future for the Maverick Theatre Company. Our primary goals are to:

  • Reach a wider audience base with a new marketing strategy.
  • Find a new non-theatre national touring circuit and set up Creative Hubs in partnership with local communities and existing stakeholders, building on our previous  success in Birmingham.
  • Build a cash reserve to shore up our organisation against future crises.
  • Develop a new fundraising strategy.

We are looking for people who:

  • Believe in the power of theatre and the arts to bring people together.
  • Believe that art and culture should be accessible to all.
  • Are perhaps connected to the creative or cultural sector (whether personally or professionally).
  • Are able to give some time and energy to support the Maverick Theatre Company.
  • Have experience that would be relevant to delivering our goals (ie. Marketing/PR, fundraising, legal) whether in the arts sector or elsewhere.

As well as the legal responsibilities for trustees, we expect board members will:

  • Attend 3 board meetings a year & AGM – at present all of these are being conducted over Zoom but in future we hope to hold at least one in-person meeting per year. (We’ve always liked a party!)
  • Hopefully come to performances of the Maverick Theatre Company when they occur.
  • Be prepared to communicate with leadership (usually over phone or email) throughout the year about specific issues.
  • Offer support on occasions where their expertise would be valuable to the organisation – e.g. offering advice on a specific area or looking over a funding application and giving feedback.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee for the Maverick Theatre Company, a great place to start is by saying hello. Email trustees@mavericktheatre.co.uk to register your interest and arrange an informal chat.

Thanks very much.
