STATEMENT OF INCLUSION:
ArtReach is committed to ensuring that members of traditionally marginalized and equity-
seeking groups apply for positions within the organization. ArtReach is dedicated to taking proactive steps to overcome historical patterns of discrimination in our society which have created barriers of race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, language, class, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression resulting in the denial of full participation in society. We prioritize qualified applications from those who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color, persons with disabilities, women, queer, trans or non-binary persons, or any combination of these intersections. Lived experience and/ or strong working knowledge of these realities are an asset to this position. We encourage you to self-identify in your application.
To put forward your candidacy, please submit a cover letter and resume to:
