Ashkenaz Foundation

North America’s largest celebration of global Jewish culture!


Position type: Contract position running June to September 2 (including Labour Day Weekend). The position can potentially be remote and/or part-time for June, but will ramp up in July and August. There will also be some minor remote P/T wrap-up work in early September.

We are looking for a dynamic coordinator to join our team for summer 2024. The 2024 Ashkenaz Summer Series & Festival will include a 4-part double-bill concert series in Earl Bales Park, featuring a combination of pop, rock, and Jewish roots music bands every second Monday night from July 15 – August 26. From August 27 – September 2, the Ashkenaz Festival will feature over 200 artists in 75+ performances and 50,000+ attendees at Harbourfront Centre and other venues around the city. The Foundation showcases the work of leading contemporary artists from Canada and around the world working in all artistic disciplines. The Foundation’s mandate and programming encompasses a vast range of pan-Jewish music and art, including Sephardic, Ladino, Falasha and Mizrachi traditions, and also strongly emphasizes fusion and cross-cultural exchange with artists from outside Jewish cultural traditions. The Volunteer & Vendor Coordinator will work closely with all Ashkenaz staff members on volunteer & vendor recruitment and logistics.
