BIPOC Artist Advocate
Hosted by The Segal Centre
Working closely with the Artistic & Executive Director, the BIPOC Artists’ Advocate will support the Segal Centre’s objective to ensure that inclusion and accessibility remains a vital element in everything we do. They will facilitate and provide support for Segal’s EDI internal working group (ENSEMBLE) and ad hoc projects such as KOLOT, assist in the casting process and provide reporting to the Board in regard to EDI recommendations.
They will also play key roles as resource person to the creative and production teams of Segal productions, work as internal liaison with outreach consultants, and as advisor to the Marketing and Communications department. As an advocate for BIPOC Artists, they serve as the resident advocate for all BIPOC artists involved in any of the Segal’s productions throughout the season and support the shows throughout the pre-production and production phases of a project. This resource and position will be acknowledged in artist contracts. Introductions will occur at the beginning of the production phases, i.e. first production meeting, meet & greet.
Check-ins/Check outs throughout the rest of the planning, rehearsals, or during the run will be determined by the consultant and the artists as needed, with a final evaluation at the end for Segal purposes to monitor their progress and improve/adjust processes. The BIPOC Artist’s Advocate will embrace the values and mission of the Segal Centre, an organization within Montreal’s Jewish community that strives to maintain a diverse and inclusive space and working environment.
