Community Arts Space Program 2018 (RFP)
Gardiner Museum

Application Deadline: December 1, 2017 by 5pm
Date Posted: November 6, 2017

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION:

Gardiner Museum       

The Gardiner Museum is an inviting destination that inspires and connects people, art and ideas through clay, one of the world’s oldest art forms.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

Since the summer of 2016, the Gardiner Museum’s Community Arts Space program has acted as an incubator for arts-based community projects. Inspired by the transformative aspects of ceramics, both real and metaphorical, the Community Arts Space initiates both dialogue, and the hands-on creation of equitable and inclusive cultural initiatives that engage and give voice to local communities.

The Gardiner’s 307-square-metre third-floor special exhibition hall is open to proposals for the summer of 2018 from July 3 to August 31. We’re inviting applications from cultural and community organizations, collectives, presenters, artists, curators, designers, makers, architects, organizers, and producers that outline what they would do in the special exhibition hall that relates to our Community Arts Space theme for a two-week period. The possibilities are endless—dance, music or theatre performances, workshops, community arts outreach, installations, performance art—our space is yours for the taking.

Join us for an information session on Wednesday, November 15 to learn more about what to expect from this year's Community Arts Space program: bit.ly/2gRBH6m

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

Public Space Intervention Project
Project open to public from July 5 - Aug 29
Design-build and/or socially-engaged installation that re-imagines what accessible, downtown public space can look like.

Performance on the Plaza
Five performances staged during July 5 - August 29
The Gardiner’s Outdoor Plaza continues to be a place in the Yorkville neighborhood for free outdoor performances. We invite applicants to submit proposals for a performing art series that will amount to five performances staged during the Community Arts Space project. Whether it’s an open air concert or unique theatrical event, we invite applicants to make our public space come alive.

Young People Project
July 3 - 20 or July 31 - August 17
The Gardiner believes in providing creative, hands-on opportunities for children, tweens, teens and families. The Young People Project would engage this young audience, connecting them to local contemporary art and cultural heritage. Additionally, this project is invited to re-imagine our Family Sundays public programming during its run.

Visibility and Representation Project
July 3 – 20 or July 31 – August 17
The Gardiner wants to authentically make space for the stories and lived experiences of local Queer, Trans, Indigenous, Black and People of Colour (QTIBPOC) communities. The Visibility and Representation Project supports critical engagement around issues like identity and belonging, as well as the systematic barriers and disenfranchisement these communities face. Additionally, this project is invited to access space at The 519 for workshop programming that supports skills sharing, professional development, and peer-to-peer learning.

Museum Intervention
August 21 - 31
The Gardiner is accepting proposals that explore the expanded field of ceramics, evoking participation, performance, and pedagogical potential. The Museum Intervention invites a project that uses installation and site sensitivity to engage with not only the Gardiner’s Exhibition Hall but also its lobby. Additionally, this project can access six months of free studio time at one of Akin Collective’s studios, as well as kiln firing access.

Chief Executive Officer
Museum of Vancouver

The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) is the largest civic museum in Canada and the oldest in Vancouver. Founded in 1894, the Museum of Vancouver creates Vancouver-focused exhibitions and programs that encourage conversations about what was, is, and can be Vancouver.

With more than 65,000 items in the collection including an outstanding array of First Nations artifacts as well as items from Vancouver's history from the 1900s through the 1970s, the Museum seeks to increase its relevance to all visitors by telling the story of the city in new and unique voices.

Located in beautiful Vanier Park, the Museum’s outstanding permanent collection is complemented by contemporary, ground-breaking feature exhibits.

The Museum is seeking qualified candidates to build on the momentum of this long serving and important institution. As Chief Executive Officer, you will report to and be accountable to the Board of Directors for providing overall leadership and direction to the Museum and for the achievement of the organization’s strategic and operational goals and objectives. Included in these are the continuation of award winning programs and exhibits, increased public awareness, attendance and sustainable revenue generating activities that will serve to bring the MOV’s offering to even greater numbers.

Working closely with the City of Vancouver, which owns the collection and the facility, and leading a highly motivated and qualified team, the next CEO will materially impact the face of culture in Vancouver, and beyond.

As the ideal candidate, you are an entrepreneurial leader with a proven track record of developing and executing on a strategic growth plan. This experience will ideally come directly from the arts and culture sector, but may also come from an organization with parallels to MOV, such as one that works to drive guest attendance or engage the community. Knowledgeable about, and ‘alive to’ the arts and culture world, and its importance in building and strengthening community is important. Experience working with First Nations, reporting to a Board and overseeing a facility will be seen as distinct assets. A Canadian context will also be important.

This is a high impact executive management role for an individual who is enlivened by culture and driven by a mandate to develop a highly awarded museum to its full potential.
