Description de l'emploi

Le Musée
Cumulant les prix pour son originalité et son leadership, le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal (MBAM) connaît une croissance fulgurante et jouit de la reconnaissance du milieu. Ses expositions aux scénographies audacieuses croisent les disciplines artistiques et sont exportées aux quatre coins du monde. Ses programmes éducatifs et culturels, eux, s’appuient sur la richesse de sa collection et des alliances avec une multitude de partenaires pour enseigner, inspirer et proposer des solutions pertinentes aux enjeux sociaux actuels. À la fois agora des arts, laboratoire ouvert à toutes les expérimentations et musée aux fortes valeurs sociales, le MBAM se redéfinit sans cesse pour vibrer au diapason de notre dynamique métropole. Avec plus d’un million de visiteurs par année, le MBAM est l’un des musées les plus fréquentés au Canada et en Amérique du Nord.
L’équipe
Le Musée se démarque grâce au talent et à l’expertise de près de 300 employé(e)s et de 400 bénévoles dédié(e)s à sa mission. Provenant d’horizons professionnels et culturels variés, les membres de cette grande équipe reflètent toute la diversité culturelle et l’énergie créatrice de Montréal. Ils s’identifient pleinement aux valeurs du MBAM et contribuent chaque jour à son rayonnement pour en faire un pôle d’excellence.   Le département de la conservation est formé de plusieurs secteurs : archéologie et cultures du monde, art international ancien, moderne et contemporain, art québécois et canadien, arts décoratifs et design ainsi qu’arts graphiques et photographiques. Cette diversité d’expertises incite les conservateurs à penser en équipe et dans la transversalité.

La collection 
Riche d’une collection encyclopédique de 43 700 œuvres, le MBAM détient l’un des plus importants ensembles d’arts décoratifs et de design en Amérique du Nord, du Moyen-Âge à nos jours. Reconnue pour son envergure, la collection ancienne regroupe 16 000 objets, entre autres : argenterie, verre, céramique, métaux, textiles, émaux et mobilier. La richesse des matériaux et la variété des styles témoignent de la qualité de la collection et illustrent l’évolution des arts décoratifs entre 1400 et 1900.  La collection se démarque notamment par des œuvres et objets d’art du Premier Empire, offerts par Ben Weider en 2008. Cet ensemble, particulièrement enrichi au cours de ces dernières années par des acquisitions et des donations, a vocation à continuer de grandir.

Le Défi
Le Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal est à la recherche d’un(e) conservateur(-trice) de l’art québécois et canadien contemporain.  Sous la responsabilité de la Directrice de la Conservation, la personne supervisera les activités liées à la gestion de projet et la planification administrative de tous les projets d’expositions du MBAM.

Job Description

The Powell River Museum and Archives are located on the traditional territory of the Tla’amin Nation who, according to archaeological evidence, have occupied the region for at least 7600 years. 

Reporting to the president of the board of directors of the Powell River Museum and Archives Association, the executive director works with the Association’s Board, staff and volunteers, the Tla’amin Nation, the Regional District of qathet, the City of Powell River, and community stakeholders to preserve, provide access to, and promote the region’s cultural heritage. 

The Historical Museum houses 260m2 of displays, including exhibits on Tla’amin Nation (Coast Salish) culture, the Powell River Company paper mill, and life in the community over the ages. The Museum has a small gift shop featuring Coast Salish weaving and carvings. Collections include about 8,000 objects, and about 500 biological specimens. The archives contain about 175,000 images, 95 metres of archival fonds, and 2,000 maps and blueprints. The Association also administers the Forestry Museum, located nearby, that covers forestry operations from hand logging times through to the era of chain saws. On exhibit are 2-man chain saws that were among the largest ever made. A project in the works is setting up the Anderson sawmill, a steam mill Clara and Andy Anderson operated from the 1930’s to the 1950’s. 
Working in the heritage field in Powell River is a rewarding experience, as many aspects of Powell River’s history make it unique.

Powell River is also home to the first credit union in BC and the longest continuously operating theatre in Western Canada. 

Quality of life and cultural engagement are important to local residents who host many cultural events including jazz, classical music, choir and film festivals. With its extensive trail network, nearby lakes and mountains, and location by the ocean, Powell River also has much to offer those who enjoy the outdoors. 
 
Responsibilities:

2. Recruit and hire staff when vacancies arise.
3. Handle routine operations including periodic activity reports, budget preparation, drafting and administering policies, implementing the Association’s strategic plan, and managing human resources.
4. Working with the Museum’s bookkeeper, oversee all day-to-day finances, budget allocations, and administrative reporting requirements including preparation and presentation of the annual budget request and report to the Regional District. 
5. Work with the Tla’amin Nation to partner on heritage preservation and presentation. 
6. Negotiate contracts and leases. Apply for grants. 
7. Ensure a respectful working environment.
8. Develop a communication’s strategy to increase the museum’s profile through traditional and social media and community outreach. Promote the Museum as a tourist attraction.
9. Coordinate facility matters in conjunction with the City of Powell River works department.
10. Oversee health and safety for the Museum. 
11. Other duties as assigned by the Board.

Qualifications: 
1. Formal post-secondary accreditations (B.A. or higher) in Museum and/or Archival Studies, Heritage Resource Management, Heritage Conservation, or other related fields. 
2. Five years of working experience in the heritage sector with a minimum of two years in a supervisory role.
