Deadline to Apply Friday February 12, 2021
Send cv and cover letter to Karen@childrenspeacetheatre.org
We are looking for someone who is passionate about working with QT BIPoC children and youth and committed to team-building and relationship building to build our QT BIPoC led community learning site for land based arts, and grassroots Black liberation and Indigenous reclamation initiatives.
The candidate will be well-connected, thoughtful, creative, and charismatic QTBIPOC person who can lead all aspects of our work towards manifesting the “Village Matrix” Governance Model with care, co-operative values, centering the brilliance of QTBIPOC communities.
The Candidate will be well suited to develop the organizational, social, spiritual, political, and economic unity (Umoja) of Children’s Peace Theatre. This includes leading the Artistic Vision of our beloved programs like Peace Camp, while mentoring and supporting staff and grassroots groups to lead programs, while being committed to developing the Children’s Peace Theatre's space as a hub for healing and liberation in relationship with ongoing local social movements.
The AD will work together in a non-hierarchical relationship with the Associate Artistic Director, the Intergenerational Council, staff, and community to develop Children’s Peace Theatre’s role as a leader in Community Arts, and as a beloved artist/community/activist hub in Toronto.
We emphasize the need to welcome into our community a strong leader who is committed to co-creating spaces centred in intergenerational trauma-aware healing, conflict transformation, and transformative justice.
We encourage applications from individuals from equity seeking communities and who represent our work that centres BIPoC and LGBTQ2SAIP communities.
