March 23, 2018
Job description:



As Alberta Theatre Project’s visionary leader, the Artistic Producer (AP) will develop a clearly focused Artistic Vision for the future, will advocate for that vision with stakeholders and funders and will inspire the organization to achieve its goals. The AP will revitalize both the artistic and business direction of the company. The role is accountable for creating and implementing a comprehensive strategic plan and works with the Leadership Team to provide programming, financial and business planning, marketing & communications, fund development, and facility management oversight for the company. Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, the Artistic Producer will be an experienced, inspirational leader who understands both the artistic and operational requirements of a not-for-profit arts organization and has experience in brand development, best practices around organizational development and structure, collaborative planning, and financial management.

The Artistic Producer will help redefine and raise ATP’s profile locally and nationally and will implement strategies to secure the company’s long-term financial stability, increase organizational resiliency, and ensure its lasting artistic legacy.


Founded in 1972, Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) envisioned bussing school children to see plays about Canadian history at a historic site in Calgary’s Heritage Park. ATP commissioned the necessary new work about Canada for young audiences, but as it grew through the 1970’s and 80’s, it changed its focus to a commitment to contemporary theatre and to creating and producing new Canadian plays for adults. Through the years, ATP broadened its audience, introducing plays from an international repertoire while remaining dedicated to Canadian playwriting. In 1985 it moved from the 165 seat log cabin in Heritage Park to the new and larger 400 seat Martha Cohen Theatre, in what is now the Calgary Arts Commons.
Today, ATP produces an annual season of six plays, including a presentation and a Family Holiday Show.
As it approaches its 50th anniversary, the company has a unique opportunity to again re-examine its mission and goals and move forward with a clearly-focused Artistic Vision that will take Alberta Theatre Projects into the 2020s
