HIRING FLEET PROJECT MANAGER
Other Sights is hiring a project Manager for FLEET Project as we move into the construction of the first mobile studios for the FLEET.
FLEET is a creative approach to complement the community’s ongoing efforts to build more studio opportunities for artists. Responding to the loss of arts and culture hubs across Vancouver, FLEET is a multi-year project that aspires to plan, design and, pilot a FLEET of moveable studios for working artists. The project will place these studios on a temporary basis throughout the city and manage their ongoing use. FLEET working group undertook a significant amount of community consultation over the past three years, resulting in project recommendations and a Feasibility study. Other Sights has raised capital funds for the construction of 1-3 FLEET units and is currently working to put together a small team to complete the build. FLEET’s visible presence will draw attention to Vancouver’s artistic community’s space deficit while foregrounding the need to share the public spaces of the city more equitably.
This hands-on project involves coordinating with FLEET working group, Other Sights, contractors, and site managers in order to construct 1-3 FLEET studios (scope dependent on funding). The Project Manager will work to ensure construction completion. Number of hours are negotiable and will be established at the time of contracting.
