Burlington Performing Arts Centre Seeks Executive Director

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) invites  suggestions and expressions of interest in the position of Executive Director for the Burlington Performing Arts Centre in Burlington, ON.

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre, located in the heart of downtown Burlington, is a new 63,000 sq. foot facility that opened in 2011.  The building, designed by Diamond + Schmitt Inc., is LEED-certified (leadership in energy and environmental design), Ontario’s first stand-alone green performing arts venue. 

The BPAC is managed by a separate not-for-profit organization with an independent board of directors (Burlington Theatre Board, Inc.), supported in part by the City of Burlington.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director–as the chief operating officer of the corporation–is charged with maintaining an effective fiscally responsible operating model for the performing arts centre, balancing between the Centre’s own presenting series, performances of community-based arts groups, and other community/corporate rentals and usage. 

The Executive Director is responsible for general operations, budget development, programming, strategy implementation, general administration, revenue generation, and community liaison, overseeing staff working in such areas as marketing, fund-raising, box office, front of house, technical and artistic operations, building maintenance, and finance. 

Chosen in 2016 as Canada’s  second “Best Place to Live” and the Best Mid-Size City in the country, the City of Burlington is home to a number of leading companies with global mandates.

Alberta Showcase 2017: Artist Applications

Now in its 40th year, Alberta Showcase connects touring artists with community presenters searching for artists for special events, concert and performance series, and community celebrations. It is three days of showcasing the top performance artists interested in touring Alberta, that will inspire you!

Every October the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta brings together presenters from across Alberta who are searching for performing artists who will tour in their communities. Many of the soft-seat presenters offer subscription series. Some are simply cafes with one off concerts and events. They are looking for a diverse, challenging line-up of artists with broad audience appeal. Alberta Showcase 2017 will take place October 19-22 at the Shell Theatre in the Dow Centennial Centre in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta (just 30 minutes north of Edmonton). All applications are reviewed by a jury of presenters, performers, and promoters, and the top applicants are selected to showcase over the weekend.

Artist Applications are processed through the I Want to Showcase website.

Applications open February 1 and the deadline to apply is April 1.

I Want to Showcase is a collaboration between partner performing arts conferences whose goal is simple: to offer performing artists a showcase application site that’s easy to navigate, understand and use.
