Cinevolution is growing, and we are searching for an Accessibility Coordinator to help amplify our mission of bringing contemporary migrant experiences into the global conversation through film and media arts, and challenging conventional definitions of identity, while making media arts accessible to all.
As our annual media art festival moves online, we are exploring opportunities to make our programs more accessible to members of dis/Abilities communities through outreach, collaboration, and experimentation with new strategies to develop an alternative model for inclusive, interactive online presentations of media art.
The Accessibility Coordinator will be responsible for developing and nurturing relationships with accessibility partners, researching and coordinating accessibility services and training, and coordinating and producing accessible content. This is an exciting opportunity to work with a small, dedicated team of filmmakers, artists, and community organizers to shape this evolving organization and contribute to broader conversations about accessibility and technology-mediated experiences within the arts sector and beyond.
Cinevolution is a grassroots, women-led, migrant-driven non-profit arts organization, with a mission to:
+ Promote innovation and critical discourse through film and new media art works
+ Bring new ways of thinking and expression into cross-cultural communication, and
+ Foster creative exchange and collaboration among filmmakers and media artists in Canada and around the world
Founded in 2007, Cinevolution has been committed to making experimental film and media art accessible for all since its inception, with a particular focus on connecting and empowering immigrants and other historically marginalized communities through community festivals, participatory media art projects, film screenings, workshops, and live performance events.
Sitting at the nexus of art, academia and community, we seek to decentralize art while connecting people across cultural, political, geographic and linguistic boundaries in order to foster media literacy, stimulate critical discourse, and cultivate creativity. Our work is powered by the belief that art can transcend cultural, social and linguistic divides to transform both the artist and the audience.
Reporting to the Executive Director and working closely with the programming team, the Accessibility Coordinator will be responsible for developing and nurturing relationships with accessibility partners, researching and coordinating accessibility services and training, and coordinating and producing accessible content. The Accessibility Coordinator will also be expected to participate actively in programming discussions and work with the team to develop creative ways to interweave accessibility with artistic intent.
