We’re looking for an exciting young producer to join Paprika’s leadership team!
Due to Paprika’s youth-led mandate, the ideal candidate will be under 30.
For the past 18 years the Paprika Theatre Festival (Paprika) has been the home of the emerging artist. We are a year-round youth-led performing arts organization celebrating the work of young and emerging artists. All of our programs include a strong focus on mentorship and training, and we are guided by four core values of accessibility, artistic development, community, and youth leadership.
The role of Artistic Producer (“AP”) a is a unique and exciting opportunity for someone at the early stages of their artistic and managerial career. It is a dynamic role that requires experience in theatre creation, production, and arts management. It is ideal for an emerging leader with flexible time and willingness to extend themselves beyond the parameters of this job description.
The primary work of the AP is to oversee Paprika’s artistic programming, and assist the General Manager in overseeing the organization’s operations. They function as a resource point for teenagers, young adults, and emerging artists looking to share their artistic material. The AP connects young and emerging artists to the professional arts community and should be highly knowledgeable on the diversity of professional theatre artists, institutions, and community-engaged arts groups in Canada. The AP works as a partner to the General Manager and assists in the administrative duties of the organization, including grant writing, contract negotiation, production resourcing, marketing and outreach, and development. This partnership is critical to a healthy management structure, which includes three to four other part-time administrative collaborators on the executive team.
