Applications due: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at 5pm ET
Generator is seeking new leadership to bring a strong vision for the next chapter of our work building the capacity and resilience of the independent performance sector.
We are inviting bold, creative applications and are particularly interested in proposals for co-leadership and shared decision-making models.
The current budget for all salaried staff, designed to meet the needs of our current programming, is $96,000. This is currently split between one full-time person (35 hours/wk) at $55,000 and three part-time employees who work 12-14 hours/week.
Incoming leadership will not inherit this staff structure, and we encourage applicants to look to a structure that works for them and supports their vision for Generator. Please see the Application Package for more information about personnel budget and how the staff has delivered programming historically.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Generator is a mentoring, teaching, and innovation incubator that expands the skills, tools, and competencies of independent artists, producers, and leaders. Our mandate is to serve Toronto’s independent performance community.
As we look to Generator’s future, the Board is committed to the ‘why’ and ‘who’ of who we serve, but we are open to, and inviting, change in ‘how’ we serve this community.
WHO SHOULD APPLY
We are looking for applicants who:
- have experience producing live performance
- have a strong understanding of developing and delivering content for in-person and online learning
- have strong networks in Toronto’s local performance ecology
- are versed in ethical and sustainable producing practices—especially the kind that don’t demand that artists plug every leak with self-exploitation
We are committed to bringing a strong lens of social justice to the organization’s strategic direction, and are prioritizing IBPOC artist producers and other members of equity-seeking groups who can bring their living and learned experience to guide Generator’s next iteration.
Historically, Generator has been led by a single individual. We are excited to explore decentralized leadership models, and we invite applicants to be creative with their proposals.
