This role will support work related to ensuring Calgarians can connect with the public art process, and projects that impact and tell the stories of their relevant communities. This individual may work directly with artists and on the ground in support of public art projects and programs, supporting artist-informed engagements and delivering upon project specific initiatives. This role is involved in the delivery of information sessions about the program, ensuring artists and Calgarians are well informed about opportunities and programs in their community, and Calgarians are able to learn more about public art.
We recognize that the job application process can create barriers to access for many applicants who are interested in applying. Our job calls are written in English, shared online and require applicants to email their applications in English. This creates technological, linguistic, communication, and cultural barriers, to name a few. In recognition of these barriers to access, eligible applicants can request assistance to help alleviate some of the costs associated with preparing and submitting a job application.

While we seek to rectify this in the future, we feel it is important to be transparent about the limitations of our current facilities. It is important to note that our office in the Burns Building downtown is unfortunately not fully accessible in the following ways:
- The Burns Building is not fully wheelchair accessible.
- We do not have accessible or gender-neutral washrooms — the closest ones are in the building adjacent to ours, Arts Commons.
- We are not presently equipped with technology that supports those with hearing or visual impairments.
