Xpace Cultural Centre welcomes Natalie King to the team as Programming Coordinator. Natalie will work in collaboration with the Director and second Programming Coordinator to manage, plan and execute workshops, events and exhibitions for Xpace’s exhibition spaces. Natalie will also act as a liaison between the OCAD U student body, local and national arts organizations, artists and the general public for all information pertaining to Xpace.
Xpace Cultural Centre is a not-for-profit artist-run centre supported by the OCAD Student Union. We are dedicated to providing emerging and student artists, designers, curators and art writers with opportunities to showcase their work in a professional setting. Our programming responds to contemporary issues, and the interests and needs of our membership and community. Xpace is committed to maintaining an anti-oppressive, queer positive environment, welcoming marginalized, racialized and indigenous folks.
Natalie King is a queer Anishinaabekwe artist, facilitator and member of Timiskaming First Nation. King's practice ranges from drawing, painting, and installation as well as community engagement and activism. Often involving portrayals of femme identities, King’s works are about embracing the ambiguity and multiplicities of identity within the indigenous queer femme experience. King's practice operates from a firmly critical, decolonizing, equity-oriented, non-oppressive, and future-bound perspective, capturing the realities of lived lives through frameworks of desire and survivance.
Xpace Cultural Centre is committed to cultivating an inclusive space where all are treated with respect and dignity. Xpace encourages applications from women, Aboriginal peoples, visible minorities, people with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientation or gender identity. Please note that Xpace will endeavour to accommodate job applicants with a disability during the hiring process in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code guidelines and other applicable legislation.
