New Media Lab & Member Services Coordinator
Full Time; 30 hrs/wk
ARTSPACE is Peterborough’s artist-run centre, a non-profit organization committed to the support and development of contemporary art and artists. Formally, our mandate aims to foster a stronger appreciation for Canadian contemporary art. Our strong programming and community spirit have helped us build a reputation as one of our region’s most vital arts organizations.
ARTSPACE is currently developing a New Media Lab. This new facility, housed within ARTSPACE’s physically-accessible Toolbox and Project Rooms, will offer members on-site access to video and audio editing software, audio, video, and static image recording equipment. The only lab of its kind in Peterborough, the New Media Lab will also offer skill-building workshops and tutorials designed for all levels of experience.
The New Media Lab & Member Services Coordinator will be responsible for a variety of tasks related to the operation of ARTSPACE’S New Media Lab including: visioning, promotion, equipment rentals, lab bookings, member orientation, statistical and member database management, workshop development, volunteer recruitment and training, and gathering and developing how-to resources pertaining to available equipment and software.
The Coordinator will also be involved in grant writing and programming as related to New Media Projects. New Media Lab duties will take up approximately two thirds of the Coordinator’s time, at an estimated 20 hours per week. The remainder of this position will be spent coordinating ARTSPACE’s membership, and volunteer coordination.
The ideal candidate will have:
* A BFA or higher, or a BAh or higher in a related field
* Excellent communication and organizational skills
* Experience with software such as Adobe CS6 Design and Web, Adobe CS6 Production Premium, Final Cut Pro, and AVID.
