Community Engagement Manager

Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts) is requesting formal submissions from suppliers of consulting services to meet our requirements for a community engagement manager. AUArts’ centennial year is 2026. We are seeking responses from a consultant who will work with us from early 2022 to early 2027 to engage our internal and external communities in the creation and implementation of a plan that will celebrate not just our rich 100-year history, but our future.

In the role of community engagement manager, you will:

  • Consult widely in the creation of a centennial plan.
  • Work with various communities to plan centennial components.
  • Oversee the completion/implementation of centennial components which are likely to include content creation, exhibitions, events and historical research.
  • Explore, develop and manage linkages between fundraising and the centennial and any other projects that further support AUArts’ strategic plan.
  • Plan and execute the annual convocation and grad show to ensure it is a strategic component of community engagement activities leading to the centennial.
  • This is a five-year contract, beginning early 2022 to early 2027, expected to be mostly full-time.
