We are recruiting a full-time community liaison to join our public art team. This new position will be responsible for acting as a connector and liaison between the Calgary Arts Development public art team, the greater arts community, and the general public in Calgary. This is a term-specific 12-month role with a possibility of renewal depending on the program staff needs at that time.
This role is currently planned to report to the public art director.
The person in this role will support work related to ensuring all Calgarians have the opportunity to engage in the public art process, and specifically in the projects that impact and tell the stories of their relevant communities.
This individual will also support Calgary Arts Development’s work to provide new education opportunities to ensure emerging artists can find entry points into the public art program, that Calgarians are well informed about programs in their community, and that Calgarians have the opportunity to learn more about public art.
It is expected that the individual in this position will spend most of their time developing and strengthening external relationships, and providing resources to artists and the general public.
The individual in this role will also work toward embedding the values of equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in all relationships and processes related to this position. This includes Truth and Reconciliation, and right relations with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities in Treaty 7, in part realized through the activation of the White Goose Flying Report, a local adaptation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report with calls to action that can be influenced locally.
This is a new position at Calgary Arts Development, and as such we recognize that accountabilities may shift as the program is developed.
