Youth Position: Marketing Coordinator

Sled Island is hiring a seasonal Marketing Coordinator to join our team from January 10 to June 30, 2022.

This is a position partially funded by the Canada Summer Jobs program, therefore applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:

Sled Island is a charitable organization with the mandate of fostering understanding and appreciation of music & arts underrepresented in mainstream media, and to support the local artistic community through performance and educational opportunities. Our main activity is the presentation of the annual Sled Island Music & Arts Festival, a pillar of Calgary’s cultural calendar taking place each June, that brings together thousands of artists, volunteers, partners, and attendees from across the country and beyond. We also present year-round artistic and educational programming through numerous community partnerships, aimed at increasing awareness of Sled Island on an ongoing basis.

Sled Island is a community-centric organization driven by values of curiosity and diversity, on and off the stage, and committed to principles of equity, anti-racism, and anti-oppression.

The deadline to apply is December 3, 2021, at 5.00pm MT.
