Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity acknowledge, with deep respect and gratitude, our home on the side of Sacred Buffalo Guardian Mountain. In the spirit of respect and truth, we honour and acknowledge the Banff area, known as “Minhrpa” (translated in Stoney Nakoda as “the waterfalls”) and the Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Îyârhe Nakoda (Stoney Nakoda) – comprised of the Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Goodstoney Band – as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation and the Blackfoot Confederacy comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Shuswap Nations, Ktunaxa Nations, and Metis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We acknowledge all Nations who live, work, and play, help us steward this land, and honour and celebrate this place.
The director, theatre arts is responsible for leading the vision and implementation of theatre arts programming at Banff Centre.
The director’s role is to create a compelling vision for programs that meet the ambitions and objectives of the Banff Centre strategic plan, meet the needs of Canadian and international artists in the 21st century and increase the profile and reach of our nationally and internationally renowned programs.
Theatre arts is one of many disciplinary areas at the Banff Centre and the incumbent will work closely with directors of all other arts disciplines at the Centre, and with the Dean of Arts and Leadership, to plan and design not only specific portfolio programs, but also cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary programs where appropriate.

Excellent knowledge of theatre arts practice and education is essential (including a broad working knowledge of dance, opera, playwrights, and theatre).
