$17.50/ hour for up to a maximum of 55 hours
Shakespeare In Action (SIA) is looking for artists, arts workers and creatives to support essential service organizations in the York South-Weston (YSW) area. With the support of the Toronto Foundation, SIA is proud to announce the Artists Supporting Community Initiative (ASCI).
The ASCI pairs out-of-work artists with paid opportunities to support emergency frontline relief efforts in the York South-Weston community. By building a bridge between artists and essential service organizations in our community, this program intends to facilitate unlikely relationships, grow human resource capacities, and provide relief to both the arts sector and our community’s urgent needs.
To be part of the ASCI, participants will be paired with an essential service organization, working a maximum of up to 55 hours. Support can include food or medication delivery for seniors, staffing at a local food bank, managing a community phone line, and more. These hours can be worked over a period of time, with a minimum of two weeks to a maximum of two months. The fee breakdown is as follows:
$17.50/ hour for up to a maximum of 55 hours.
The ASCI is designed so the maximum payout is $962.50, which leaves participants eligible for CERB. Supplemental transportation support available for delivery drivers.
To apply please fill out the questionnaire provided below:
SIA is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and to building an organization that reflects the communities we serve. We encourage applications from members of Black, Indigenous, and racialized communities; Two-Spirit, non-binary, trans, lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer people; disabled people; youth; and members of other equity seeking groups. SIA is also prioritizing artists, arts workers and creatives who live in and around York South-Weston.
