WorkInCulture (WIC) is a non-profit arts service organization founded in 1998. Our mission is to support the professional lives of artists, creative and cultural workers, and the organizations that support and engage them, through skills development, research, and career resources.
We are looking for volunteers, with relevant experience, to serve on our Sponsorship Committee.
We serve over 274, 000 people in the cultural sector, comprised of artists, creatives, and cultural workers. We serve students, emerging, mid-career, and experienced professionals from all disciplines, seeking business, leadership and management skills upgrades, sustainability and an inclusive, equitable and diverse work culture.
We believe that engaged and successful cultural workers contribute to happy and prosperous communities. Our vision is an inclusive arts, culture, and creative sector that contributes to the economic and social well-being of our communities. If you feel inspired by these beliefs, please consider applying to join a team that is helping us build a stronger cultural sector.
Throughout the years, WorkInCulture has been supported by funders like the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Arts Council, the Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Government of Ontario. Additionally, we have a robust earned revenue stream from sources like our popular JobBoard. Sourcing sponsorship partners is a new opportunity for us.
