221A is seeking applications from eligible candidates for the role of Program Coordinator. 221A is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to work with Artists and Designers to research and develop cultural, social and ecological infrastructure. 221A operates under a Research and Infrastructure model. Unlike a typical exhibition model for a Visual Art and Design organization, 221A’s operating model supports cultural workers over extended periods to lead the organization’s artistic pursuits, engaging deeply with contexts, collaborators, ideas, and audiences.

221A and the City of Vancouver officially opened Howe Street Studios today with a welcome by Debra Sparrow, Musqueam Weaver, Artist, and Knowledge Keeper; a press briefing with Mayor Kennedy Stewart; and, the launch of an artwork by Germaine Koh, Set Pieces, 2019, commissioned through the City’s Private Sector Public Art requirement.
The vision of the facility is to support the re-emergence of material culture in Vancouver’s downtown core, focusing on artists and designers who have traditionally been disadvantaged through lack of access to public resources. The facility provides 10,800 square feet of studio space (roughly the size of a baseball diamond), which 221A operates through a cost-recovery model.
