YLDE Managing Artistic Director Call

Young Lungs Dance Exchange is a not-for-profit artist-run support organization committed to the development, creation and presentation of contemporary dance and performance on Treaty 1 Territory, Winnipeg, MB.

YLDE’s range of projects are aimed at dancers, makers, thinkers of dance, and anyone contributing to their physical understanding of self and the world around them. YLDE believes that physical expression is a political act that requires support and community interaction. We therefore are committed to nurturing the beginnings of the creative process when artists are most engaged in experimentation, research, building new ideas and discovering new collaborations.

We’re looking for a Managing Artistic Director to lead our organization in supporting the evolution of dance in Manitoba. The ideal candidate will share with us a love for dance and the belief that dance should hold a vital and valued place in society. As well, they will have an excitement for creative visioning, and the drive to steer this organization.

YLDE is committed to the principle of equitable access to employment, and welcomes applications from diverse backgrounds. We encourage you to self-identify in your cover letter.

If you are interested and qualified for this exciting opportunity, please submit a cover letter and resume by end of day, Monday, November 20th, 2023 to Kayla Jeanson, Board Chair, Young Lungs Dance Exchange.
