Platform centre for photographic and digital arts is a not-for-profit Artist-Run Centre whose mandate is to showcase and promote artists at all levels in their development. With a primary focus on artists working in photography, as well as other lens-based mediums such as film and video, PLATFORM has been organizing contemporary art exhibitions for thirty years, and in doing so has garnered a reputation for engagement of various audiences. The centre is also committed to a critically rigorous yet informative writing program that boasts publications ranging from brochures and broadsheets to artist monographs and anthologies.
Presently, PLATFORM is seeking dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to fill various positions on its Board of Directors. Board meetings are held monthly, and members are expected to volunteer additional time sitting on committees and attending Gallery events. Directors are expected to hold their positions until the next Annual General Meeting.
Ideal candidates will be trained and active professionals with fundraising and/or previous board experience, who possess a strong interest in contemporary arts practices. Professional training in the arts is not required. Candidates must also be community-minded and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. Previous experience in the not-for-profit sector or with other Artist-Run Centres is an asset. Interested individuals are asked to submit their resume and a letter of intent to PLATFORM.
