Employment Opportunity: Executive Director, InterAccess (Toronto)
Application Deadline: August 13th, 2021
Start Date: September 2021
InterAccess is currently seeking a visionary leader to step into the role of Executive Director (ED). The ED is a senior administrative position that reports directly to the Board of Directors. The ED is responsible for overseeing all aspects of operations, including financial management, granting, facility oversight, program delivery, and staff and volunteer management. The ED works in line with InterAccess’s mission to expand the cultural significance of art and technology, supports and enhances its strategic priorities, and provides value to the organization and its audiences.
More broadly, the ED will cultivate the growth of the organization across two crucial fronts. First, InterAccess is heavily focused on community development and equity, simultaneously looking to better serve its constituent community of artists while expanding the new media art space to make it more welcoming to marginalized communities that have been historically excluded. At the same time, the ED will spearhead special project and private sector fundraising, to increase the capacity, impact, and resilience of the organization. The successful candidate will require a dynamic mix of cultural sensitivity, communication skills, strategic foresight, and ingenuity to forge forward on both fronts—and lead InterAccess into its next chapter.
Founded in 1983 as Toronto Community-Videotex, InterAccess is a gallery, educational facility, production studio, festival, and registered charity dedicated to new media and emerging practices in art and technology.
InterAccess’s mission is to expand the cultural significance of art and technology by fostering and supporting the full cycle of art and artistic practice through education, production, and exhibition.
This position is a full-time (35 hours/week) contract position expected to begin September 2021. The contract is for a term of one year, with the expectation of renewal. Standard weekly hours are based on a Monday–Friday schedule. Frequent evenings and weekends will be required, with overtime at certain times of the year. Employees receive time off in lieu for all overtime hours worked.
This position is salaried. The salary range is $45,000-$55,000 commensurate with experience plus three weeks paid vacation.
