Studio Facilitator – Fibre Arts Specialty

Hosted by National AccessArts Centre (NaAC)

This is permanent full time opportunity for 30 hours per week with an immediate start. Located in Calgary, AB.

Who We Are The National accessArts Centre is a fun, fast-paced, dynamic work environment where we all collaborate to provide artistic training, creation, exhibition, and present opportunities for artists with disabilities. As a creativity hub for artists living with disabilities, so often limited in their opportunities and choices, we blur the lines between professional artists, disabled artists, entrepreneurs, innovators, and storytellers by sharing their work internationally and re-shaping how the world views and appreciates their talents and place in our communities.

Who You Are and What You Will Do A highly motivated creator with an established creative skill set and a desire to work in both the arts and disability communities. You are passionate about helping other artists achieve their visual arts goals, in all elements of the artistic process, and are committed to ensuring that creative decisions made by our artists are theirs and theirs alone. You will support the artists’ learning of specific mediums while accounting for their unique abilities. As part of our creative team, you will assist with the development of digital/online facilitation while ensuring proper safety protocols, participating in team planning sessions, and supporting the National accessArts Centre at events and community programming. 

Reporting to the Manager, Studio, you will work as part of a team committed to the advancement of our artists in our self- directed studio, both in-person and online, and seek to deliver outstanding opportunities.

Deadline: October 22, 2021
