Nina Kane

I have a professional background in community arts, theatre research and teaching.
I was a Trustee for Leeds Children's Circus between 2000-2003, and joined the Greentop Board in 2016 as a parent trustee. Greentop is a fantastic circus and community centre, and has strongly supported my daughter over the past 11 years. Its co-operative and caring ethos is inspirational, and I want to help it grow from strength to strength so it can nurture future generations of young circus people.

I did one of Greentop’s fantastic weekend trapeze workshops and never looked back. It changed my perception about what my body could do – I want other people to experience that too. I knew I wanted to be part of supporting Greentop to grow, so I applied to be a trustee.

Having known of Greentop Circus and its work for many years, and knowing the transformational power that engaging in the arts and creative practice can have on individuals of all ages and abilities, I was really excited by the potential to be more involved with this organisation. I felt having worked in the arts and cultural sector for twenty years in arts and cultural policy and management, I have a strong skills and knowledge base which could benefit the organisation. I have always been passionate about ensuring access to the arts is something that everyone should feel is their right and not a privilege, and the ethos of Greentop and the range of work the organisation undertakes in diverse communities is certainly testament to that. It is a real honour to be Chair of Greentop and to support the organisation through its next phase of development.

My background is a long career in community-based performing arts as a director, facilitator, educator and manager: this has involved working with a wide range of people who are interested or involved in the arts. I am passionate about the benefits and change that involvement in the arts can bring to individuals and to communities. I feel that Greentop Circus holds a unique place not only as Sheffield’s professional circus arts company but also as a significant contributor to the development of circus arts and training in the UK. As a Board member, it is an honour to be able to support the company’s work.
