Graphic Designer and Layout Specialist

TRAction, producer of the Climate Art Web, is seeking a specialist in graphic design/document layout to support the design of two documents. Over the past year, TRAction has been working with a group of Indigenous artist advisors from across Northern Turtle Island to generate these documents — a brief one that summarizes TRAction’s organizational pillars and a larger Decolonial Toolkit that supports efforts to decolonize the climate art sector. Both documents are currently in Microsoft Word; however, we are interested in having someone develop layout design that can communicate the texts with supportive visual graphics. The documents will be shared as freely available resources via the TRAction and Climate Art Web websites (likely in pdf format). TRAction’s Indigenous Advisory Council has specified a preference for an Indigenous designer to realize this project.

Since its inception, TRAction has worked to honour and learn from Indigenous ways of knowing. TRAction works in close relationship with an Indigenous Advisory Council, a group of Indigenous artists, educators and/or knowledge keepers that includes Chantal Stormsong Chagnon, Sandra Lamouche, Cole Alvis, Starr Muranko and Jacob Crane. As a collective whose ethics are based on developing relationality as well as being held accountable to the Indigenous communities of the lands we are on, TRAction is grateful beyond words for what these individuals offer in terms of time, knowledge and experience.
