Job Posting: Executive Director
The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE), a charitable not-for-profit organization, is seeking to hire a new Executive Director (ED).
TOAE is a juried showcase featuring contemporary fine art and craft that takes place on Nathan Phillips Square for three days on the second weekend of July each year. TOAE serves as a fresh-air alternative to conventional art shows and galleries. Approximately 500 artists participate and over 100,000 visitors attend the exhibition every year. Side by side, established artists, undiscovered talents and innovative students sell their work directly to the public and make lasting connections with art dealers and collectors.
Reporting to a volunteer Board of Directors, the ED may be employed first on a part-time basis from June 29 until July 24, 2009 to shadow the current ED. The successful candidate will then begin a year-to-year contract starting September 1, 2009, including 4 weeks of vacation.
The position requires an energetic and enthusiastic person who can work flexible and sometimes lengthy hours, especially throughout the jury process and the duration of the exhibition. The ED is responsible for the financial and administrative management of the organization and the co-ordination of the exhibition. This includes the overall management of the jury process for the selection of exhibitors, fundraising for both the event and the Awards Program as well as strategic planning. The ED will work closely with the various TOAE Board committees and City of Toronto staff.
