Communications and Outreach Coordinator
The Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts initiates and supports the creation and production of art that engages diverse artists and workers at the intersection of art, social justice, and labour. We showcase working people’s art, and promote artists as workers and workers as artists. We operate within an anti-oppression framework that prioritizes the representation and participation of artists and audiences from equity-seeking groups. We are actively engaged in a social dialogue that challenges the logics of capitalism, and seeks to reimagine and represent economic and environmental justice. Mayworks commissions, curates, presents and celebrates artistically compelling projects through year-round programming and during an annual, multidisciplinary arts festival. Our programming reflects the reality of working people’s lives and furthers the struggle for better living and working conditions.
Reporting to the Executive Director and working with the Program Coordinator and Communications Committee, the Communications and Outreach Coordinator will develop and implement a communications and promotion strategy aimed at increasing community engagement with the festival and other Mayworks programming.
Deadline: December 29th, 2021.
The majority of the work can be done remotely although limited presence at the Mayworks office and in the City of Toronto during and leading up to the festival in May will be necessary. Mayworks rents an accessible office space in the United Steelworkers Building (25 Cecil St.).
Mayworks cultivates meaningful relationships with communities that face systemic discrimination and injustice. Priority will be given to BIPOC candidates and other historically marginalized individuals who have valuable professional and/or lived experience in a similar position.
