PROGRAMMING / CURATORIAL ASSISTANT

We are hiring two students for the position of Programming / Curatorial Assistant for 10-week placements to be completed between June and August 2022. 

The positions will play an important role in expanding our educational programming and outreach into the community. The roles will be responsible for developing and delivering art-making / art-thinking activities for families, youth, and adults to encourage community engagement with our exhibition content.

Working alongside the Executive Director, Curator of Contemporary Art, and the Program Manager the students will assist with the following objectives:

Programming:

  • Participate in coordination and delivery of outreach programs for children, teenagers and adults that compliment the exhibitions held at the gallery. This includes participating in public community events.
  • Promote Gallery programming via social media, website updates, newletters, etc.
  • Assist in the technical aspects of online programming to ensure a seamless experience for all users.

Curatorial:

  • Research and compile information pertaining to current and upcoming exhibitions, such as information on artists, artwork, critical discussions, and related content
  • Create informational content that enhances visitor experiences and their engagement with contemporary art, both in person and online
  • Provide visitor services in the Gallery Shop and in the Gallery spaces, sharing information on artists, exhibitions and programs, processing sales, and promoting artisans.

These positions provide career-relevant experience for young professionals entering the labour market, particularly within the arts and culture sector and not-for-profit organizations. They will have the opportunity to be creative, problem solve, and work on measurable projects with tangible results.

As organizations move to decolonize their frameworks and engage in anti-racism work, the students will gain first hand experience in cultural safety, creating safe online spaces for IBPOC community members, and communicating with rural, Indigenous communities in culturally sensitive and impactful ways.
