Gateway is broadening our perspective on the role we play in our community. We are exploring new relationships, new ways of thinking about ourselves, and new ways of working. This is a gradual process of questioning, testing, and evolving; it is not a wholesale change, but it has informed the kind of artistic leader we seek. We are in search of a producer and programmer who is eager to work collaboratively to build on past success and continue to redefine the way the venue relates to the Richmond and Lower Mainland community.
Gateway Theatre strives to be an equitable and inclusive workplace. We value an open and diverse community that fosters the inclusion of many different voices. We encourage applications from members of communities that have been marginalized based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, or status as an Indigenous person.
Although posted as a full-time role for one person, we are open to considering alternative models for filling this position and encourage candidates to pitch any nonstandard visions they might have.
Anticipated start is early spring 2020. Hours of work are office hours with occasional evenings and weekends.
