Dear artistic community of Nipissing Territory,
The White Water Gallery is currently looking for new, enthusiastic people to join our board of directors!
The role of board members is to provide active leadership and direction to the White Water Gallery in accordance with our mission and mandate.
About the White Water Gallery: White Water Gallery is a not-for-profit Artist-Run Centre committed to supporting artistic practices that prioritize risk and innovation. Founded in 1974 and incorporated in 1977, the White Water Gallery was originally created to facilitate opportunities for local artists in need of professional development who were unable to find accommodating venues for their research and dissemination projects. This need combined with the dedication of many local artists founded an institution devoted to the support of artistic development prioritizing research, risk-taking and experimentation in the arts.
About the Board: Board meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from 7-9pm at the White Water Gallery. Currently, the Board is comprised of artists, community members and students, however we welcome candidates from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. White Water Gallery is strongly committed to equity within its community and to recruiting diverse members of the Board. As such, we encourage applications from all qualified candidates including persons with disabilities, First Nations, Métis and Inuit persons, members of racialized communities and persons across a spectrum of sexual orientation or gender identities. Board members must possess up to date WWG memberships and as volunteers, cannot be financially compensated for their work or exhibit at the White Water Gallery while being on the Board. Memberships may be purchased or renewed at the upcoming AGM.
To apply, please email Robin Alex McDonald (Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short statement of interest and CV/resume by June 20th. All approved 2019-2020 board members will be voted in as a slate at the 2019 WWG AGM, scheduled for Thursday, June 27, 6pm at the White Water Gallery.
