Arts Presenting Impacts Both Creators and Communities

Arts Presenting Impacts Both Creators and Communities

The report on the Vitality and Impact of Arts Presenting has been released! This report casts light on a broad range of presenting practices and clearly reveals the positive impacts that presenters have on both the Canadian arts ecology and on communities across the country.

Among key findings are clear trends towards increased community engagement and greater efforts to build positive relationships with Indigenous artists and communities.

We invite you to join your colleagues from across Canada for a web conference on March 14th to further discuss the highlights of the report.

This initiative was led by CAPACOA and Hill Strategies, with the support of numerous presenting networks and associations, and the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

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.
