call for board members

DEADLINE: August 10, 2018

Now in its fifth year, Nuit Blanche Saskatoon is night-time arts festival that showcases and celebrates art and culture. The festival features projections, sculptural installations, performance, music, theatre and other forms of contemporary art all set in Saskatoon’s public spaces. As a non-profit organization, Nuit Blanche strives to help people of all ages engage with and enjoy Saskatoon’s thriving arts scene while exploring Saskatoon in new ways. We are committed to emerging practices that promote dialogue in our culturally diverse communities.

We are seeking passionate individuals to join our volunteer Board of Directors in 2018/19. The board provides leadership to Nuit Blanche Saskatoon in the areas of organizational and artistic direction, policy, strategic planning, and fiduciary accountability. We aim to attract skilled and committed individuals to help Nuit Blanche fulfill its mandate.

Our ideal candidate will:

  • Be passionate about promoting the accessibility of art in Saskatoon and fostering cultural dialogues
  • Possess a track-record of community leadership and active participation 
  • Possess skills and experience in the areas of: Marketing/Media/Public Relations, Fundraising, Art and Culture, Accounting, or Risk Management

Our board meets once a month and each board member is asked to serve on at least one standing committee, which may include, but is not limited to:

  • Communications
  • Event Planning and Volunteer Coordination
  • Fund Development
  • Governance and Policy
  • Human Resources
  • Programming

This is a working board and therefore some work outside of these meetings is often required. Directors are expected to make a two-year commitment.

Applications are welcomed from everyone, including: women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities. It is our aim to have a Board which reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
