Call for Applications: Strategic Advisors

Generator recognizes that producing is a creative practice. We reject the binary that separates “boring, efficient office worker” from “passionate, clueless creative” and embrace the exciting, fertile and collaborative space where arts management and live performance meet. We enthusiastically invite submissions from individuals from a diversity of performing arts practices.

As Generator looks to the next chapter of our work building the capacity and resilience of the independent performance sector, we will be engaging a paid advisory body. We’re seeking Strategic Advisors who are experienced and active producers and community members, with close ties to Toronto’s performing arts scene. These advisors will help inform Generator’s next transformation. This transformation will include a leadership transition, governance review, and ongoing development of online community resources.

We are looking for savvy, awesome humans who have some experience producing live performance, have strong networks in the local performance ecology, and know a few things about ethical and sustainable producing practices—especially the kind that don’t demand that artists plug every leak with self-exploitation. We are committed to bringing a strong lens of racial justice to the organization’s strategic direction, and are prioritizing IBPOC artist producers who can bring their living and learned experience to guide Generator’s support of the next generation of independent performance-makers.
