Contract Employment Opportunity: Project Coordinator. Deadline: February 20th, 2017

February 20, 2017

Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art seeks an experienced individual to coordinate Stages: Drawing the Curtain, a major public art project to take place throughout the city of Winnipeg in August 2017.

According to priorities established by the Executive Director, the Project Coordinator will lead the successful delivery of this ambitious public art project, featuring newly commissioned artwork. Plug In has invited nine artists from around the world to contemplate the stage – its function as a platform; its meaning as a point of attention and its physical design. The sculptural ‘stages’ will take many shapes and forms but each is intended to be platforms for performers or audiences to occupy, physically engage and contemplate. 

The ideal candidate will have previous experience in communications, managing budgets, coordinating human and material resources, and an established track record in coordinating projects in the visual arts or with not-for-profit organizations. Working on average 40 hours per week, with variability as this position will be required from time-to-time to work evenings, and weekends. Preferred three-to-five years previous experience in arts and project management (or combination thereof), and a relevant post-secondary education.

While this position has a range of accountabilities that relate to ongoing Plug In operations, it is dedicated to the successful coordination of one large-scale project. The successful candidate will provide support and implement a major visual arts project working with the Director, the artists, Plug In staff, contractors and collaborators to implement various aspects of the project.

This is a seven-month contract full-time position for March 1 – September 30, 2017. A job description is available to download. 

Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and letter of interest by 4pm central time on Monday, February 20, 2017. Plug In thanks all candidates for their interest, but only those to be interviewed will be contacted.

Please submit applications to: Angela Forget, Operations Coordinator, angela@plugin.org or, Unit 1, 460 Portage Ave, Winnipeg MB R3C 0E8
