Job Description:


The Bill Reid Gallery is Canada’s only public gallery dedicated to contemporary Indigenous art of the Northwest Coast. The Gallery is about to complete a transforming renovation with a stunning redesign that creates programming space and new galleries showcasing Bill Reid’s exquisite jewelry. The Gallery is governed by a dedicated board and managed by committed staff who share a passion to create and inspire a deeper understanding of indigenous cultures and art.

This position of Director and CEO oversees and leads the administration, programs and strategic plan of the Bill Reid Foundation and its Gallery. Community outreach, fundraising, and marketing are foundational aspects of this position which reports directly to the Board of Directors.

The Bill Reid Foundation was created in 1999 to honour the legacy of Bill Reid in the public realm and celebrate the diverse indigenous cultures of the Northwest Coast. The Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art was created in 2008 by the Bill Reid Foundation to house the Martine and Bill Reid Collection and present innovative exhibitions and programs that engage, educate and inspire a deeper understanding of indigenous cultures and art from the Northwest Coast. The operation of the Bill Reid Gallery is the main focus of the Bill Reid Foundation.

If you are aligned with the vision and mission of the Bill Reid Gallery to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples together and can bring leadership experience with not-for-profits, along with demonstrated ability to foster lasting relationships with key communities and stakeholders, and excellent administrative, communication, strategic and financial skills, please contact Hilary Meredith, HJ Meredith Group to indicate your interest in this opportunity.

We encourage you to let us know of your interest.
