221A is seeking applications for employment in the role of Curator, Projects and Residencies, working with the Director to research, plan and coordinate curatorial initiatives. Working through periods of intensity as projects develop, both indoors and outdoors, the candidate must be highly adept at understanding and implementing collaborative organizational practices as part of a wider artistic and theoretical pursuit.
The opening of this position comes at the same time as Bopha Chhay, Projects Coordinator, steps down from 221A. Arriving in Canada from New Zealand, via Afterall in London, it is with great warmth and respect that we have come to know and work with her over the past 3 years. While we will sorely miss her at 221A, we wish her continued success in her upcoming projects.

221A is a non-profit artist-run centre that presents exhibitions, talks, publications and special projects that explore the role of design in the shaping of contemporary societies. 221A is seeking proposals from practicing artists, designers, architects, academics and/or curators, including curatorial collectives, for the 2015-16 Curatorial Residency Program. Started in 2010, the Curatorial Residencies program was implemented to diversify our curatorial approach. Residents take on the critical function of working both inside and outside of the organization, offering their experience and ideas towards the continued re-framing of 221A.
