Call for Board Members

INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIZATION / Gallery Gachet is excited to announce a call for Board Members. We are a thriving, collaboratively run arts production, education and presentation space located in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver on the stolen, sacred, and ancestral homelands of the xwməθkwəy’əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We are a unionized workplace with a collective agreement covering our employees. We support participants as artists, educators and curators. Through artistic means we aim to demystify and challenge issues related to mental health and discrimination, in order to educate the public and promote social and economic justice. We believe that the expression and practice of art and active participation in culture-building is a human right, and that art and culture are critical elements of a healthy society. 

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION STATEMENT / Gallery Gachet values the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalized communities bring to our organization. We encourage, among others, Indigenous people, people of colour, people with disabilities, people identifying as LGBTQIA2S+, formerly incarcerated or institutionalized people, recent immigrants and people from working class backgrounds to apply. We also understand that applicants may experience a number of these identities simultaneously in ways that reinforce and nuance their experience. We are committed to creating an organization as diverse as the communities we serve. 

BOARD MEMBER POSITION DESCRIPTION / Gallery Gachet’s board provides governance to our non-profit organization. As Gachet moves through a period of organizational restructuring and renewal, Board Members will support the greater sustainability and operations by strengthening our governance process. Board Members attend monthly Board Meetings, develop the strategic direction of the organization with management and staff, approve policies and procedures, review relevant documents and provide advice as necessary, and help guide the creation and implementation of future committees and membership. 

Board Members are elected for a two-year term that is renewable to a maximum of six years. The time commitment may fluctuate throughout the year, but is anticipated to be about 4 hours a month. 


Please submit by email a letter of interest with your CV to:

Application deadline: March 18, 2022 @ 5pm.

We thank all those who apply! Please note only those selected for a short interview will be contacted.
