Workshop Developer

CARFAC is seeking candidates for a Workshop Developer position for our Indigenous Protocols in the Visual Arts project.

This is a 6 month contract starting in January, with the possibility of extension. The rate of pay is $35/hour for 35 hours/week. Alternatively, a longer part-time contact may be considered. Candidates may work remotely from any location from coast to coast to coast.

Since 2019, CARFAC has been involved in a community engagement initiative to create an Indigenous Protocols Toolkit for the visual arts sector. The Toolkit includes respectful guidelines for the use and protection of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis visual art and cultural material. This includes information about who has the right to reproduce, present, and reference traditional and contemporary images. The project is led by an Advisory Circle of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis artists and cultural workers, and a core project team of contract staff who work remotely.

We are looking to hire a Workshop Developer, to prepare and deliver virtual workshops on Indigenous Protocols for the arts community. The workshops will provide practical guidance on how to make ethical decisions that consider the rights and obligations of artists and presenters, and to encourage respectful engagement procedures for working with Indigenous Nations and communities. Different workshops may be available to Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, and employees of public galleries.

The Workshop Developer will review the toolkit materials and work with the Advisory Circle in the development of the workshop content, and with local Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and community liaisons on the delivery of the workshops.

CARFAC is committed to fairness, equity, and diversity in all employment opportunities, and we provide a supportive work environment for our staff.


Indigenous candidates are strongly encouraged to apply and to self-identify when applying. We also encourage applications from candidates who identify with diverse gender and sexual identities (including LGBTQ2+), those living with dis/ability, etc.
