We are seeking a creative, energetic and organized team player with passion for forging new partnerships, amplifying the work of Canadian artists and engaging people in public art experiences. Informed by STEPS strategic plan, the Program Manager will design and execute public art and placemaking programs. Their portfolio will range from facilitating calls-for-artists, stewarding review committees, managing the production of large-scale public artworks for agency clients, and overseeing a national virtual public art residency for Black, Indigenous and racialized artists. They will be integral in maintaining strong relationships with STEPS cross-sectoral stakeholders including: artists and cultural organizations from coast to coast, Business Improvement Areas, private land developers, City Councillors, community-serving agencies and funders. Positioned within Canada’s only national charitable public arts organization, STEPS Program Manager will have the opportunity to design and facilitate programming that can shift the way that public art opportunities are conceptualized, commissioned and accessed in Canada.

This is a one-year full-time contract position, with the possibility of renewal and salary commensurate with experience. Following a probationary period, this position is eligible for group benefits (including health, dental and limited life policies).
