AfrikaBurn 2024: 29 April to 5 May

Call for (volunteer) Non Executive Directors – Did you ask for the keys, yet?

Stepping up to be a Non Executive Director is a lot like being the designated driver of a mutant vehicle in Tankwa Town. This whole-lotta-world-changing fun needs some modicum of Civic Responsibility to ensure that we continue to successfully navigate our way between cosmos and chaos.

Sitting in the hot seat requires you to keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel. You’ll need your foot on the gas, know when to brake, and how best to swerve a Stofadil. You’ll also need patience and grace negotiating speed bumps, pot-holes, and the wildlife on your periphery, because this ride ain’t the Dakar rally, and SatNav won’t save you.

Licence, please?

Non Executive Directors steer the strategic sphere of the organisation and play a pivotal role ensuring the philosophical rubber hits the dirt road towards our shared horizon. The organisation is seeking individuals with experience and expertise in the following areas:

  • Cultural Activism
  • Environmental & Land Management
  • Finance
  • Fundraising
  • Information Technology
  • Law

With the following soft skills and attributes:

  • Previous non profit board experience essential
  • Independence
  • Strong ethics
  • Willingness to challenge
  • Coaching ability
  • Be self-reflective
  • Curiosity
  • Patience
  • Capability
  • An understanding of South Africa’s cultural environment and/ or pan African view
  • Willing and able to proactively engage with compliance requirements of being a NED

Candidates will be required to commit to offering at least 20 hours per month of their time in service to the organisation that propels the movement we know as AfrikaBurn.

Afrika Burns Creative Projects is a registered non profit company and public benefit organisation with section 18A status. With a commitment to our cultural context, AfrikaBurn is driven to ensure that our decision making circles at all levels are inclusive and represent the diversity of South Africa.

The organisation is specifically encouraging women and people of colour to apply – we don’t expect you to do the labour of transformation – we are seeking to learn from you.

Deadline for applications is 15 September.
