Join our team!

Hello Friends - this is Debi Wong, Founding Artistic Director of re:Naissance Opera. I included a preamble in our last job posting and we were overwhelmed and honoured by the response from our applicants. In that post, I noted that as a female-identifying person of colour, I have skimmed job applications at companies I would have loved to work for but have edited myself out because I didn’t feel like I fit the job description well enough.
Today we are posting a position funded by Canada Summer Jobs program which means our search is a little different. There are a few eligibility requirements but if you fit those requirements, we want you to feel confident applying to work with us even if you feel like you might not fit the job posting perfectly.
We continue to take a humans-first approach to everything we do and if it feels like the right fit then we will find the best ways to collaborate even if that means changing our job description.
Lastly, at re:Naissance we are thinking a lot about leadership and how to support and foster the next generation of arts leaders in all areas of artistic production, creation and administration. If this excites you, we invite you to share with us your longer term goals and if you join our team, we promise to help you move towards those goals.
We know how much time it takes to prepare applications and on behalf of the leadership team at re:Naissance, thank you for taking that time.
Debi, Katherine & Stephanie
