Programs and Accessibility Coordinator
Hosted by Queer Arts Festival / SUM Gallery
The Pride in Art Society (PiA) produces, presents and exhibits with a curatorial vision favouring challenging, thought-provoking contemporary art that pushes boundaries and initiates dialogue. PiA aims to educate and increase the public's understanding and appreciation of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Two-Spirit art and culture (hereafter referred to as “Queer”). PiA presents the Queer Arts Festival (QAF), an annual artist-run, transdisciplinary festival, and SUM Gallery, one of the only permanent spaces dedicated to the presentation of queer art worldwide. PiA brings diverse, intersectional, and intergenerational communities together to support artistic risk-taking, incite creative collaboration and experimentation and celebrate the rich heritage of queer artists and art. We harness the visceral power of the arts to inspire recognition, respect and visibility of people who transgress gender and sexual norms.
The Programs and Accessibility Coordinator supports the senior staff in the delivery of the SUM gallery and Queer Arts Festival programming and as directed, provides administrative and clerical support. The Programs and Accessibility Coordinator works cooperatively to assist with the day-to-day operations of the Society, and in coordination of the programs. The Programs and Accessibility Coordinator is someone who has a passion for the arts and awareness of the queer community and would like to gain more experience in event planning and arts administration within the arts and culture sector. This position reflects the local priorities of arts and culture, 2SLGBTQ+ community, programs and services for under-represented community groups. PiA places a strong focus on diversity; in staff and board recruitment, programming, partnerships and volunteer recruitment. As such the Programs and Accessibility Coordinator will be working with people of all ages and abilities from diverse backgrounds throughout their time at PiA.
