Every year, the Vancouver Fringe celebrates theatre over an 11-day festival in September in which more than 500 volunteers support 700+ performances for over 40,000 attendees. The Vancouver Fringe Festival is consistently voted Vancouver’s Best Arts Festival by Georgia Straight readers. But we are more than the Festival alone. We also support emerging artists throughout the year through other programs and initiatives.
The Vancouver Fringe Society seeks an innovative Executive Director to lead us to our next frontier, building on our society’s mission of cultivating artists and audiences in the creation of an open and vibrant independent theatre community.
You are a passionate, not-for-profit arts leader and want to develop emerging artists in sometimes sunny Vancouver, BC. You build strong relationships with the local theatre community and inspire them to share our vision of “Theatre for Everyone.”
That passion is evidenced in authentic leadership and demonstrated ability to oversee and collaborate with our six core staff, twenty plus seasonal and contract staff and small army of 500 plus volunteers.
You excel at building relationships with diverse communities by leading and inspiring others using a well-articulated vision of our future. You are a strategic thinker with strong organizational abilities including planning, delegating, managing human resources and steady financial management.
This is an outstanding opportunity to be a community leader in Vancouver’s innovative independent theatre scene. Come with us to the fringe…
