Stratford Circus Arts Centre director Tania Wilmer has announced her departure from the company, with the organisation set to introduce a new leadership structure.
Wilmer, who has helmed the venue for five years as both the director and chief executive, will leave the organisation at the end of March. In total, she has worked with the company for a decade.
Following her departure, the organisation will appoint a chief executive officer and a separate executive director, representing a new senior leadership structure at the venue.
Stratford Circus Arts Centre said the new leadership team would “develop and implement future strategy to maximise Stratford Circus’ impact and to build on its reputation as a key cultural organisation locally and nationally”.
Wilmer said: “I‘m immensely proud of everything we’ve achieved here over the years, including pioneering new ways of working with schools, increasing the quality and relevancy of our artistic programme and growing our financial reserves.
“It has been a privilege to be part of an organisation at the heart of the community in Newham and provide access to great artistic experiences for so many.
“I will bid a fond farewell at the end of March to pursue new opportunities, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Stratford Circus Arts Centre.”
