The overall goal for Propeller’s digital engagement initiatives is to propel the field of inclusive and accessible performance, and dance-theatre in general, into a new sphere by developing and using digital resources to reach, teach and engage a wider community.

Digital engagement is one component of a much larger, innovative year-long project that will include a variety of activities/digital tools to enable fuller accessible and inclusive engagement for both audiences and performers, in theatre as well as site-specific public settings.

The project is created and directed by Renata Soutter, Co-Artistic Director/Choreographer of Propeller in collaboration with the Propeller Company dancers, and is being presented by GCTC in association with the NAC Canada Scene.

The Digital Engagement Coordinator will:

  • Research, source services and coordinate access to a variety of accessible engagement tools, including performance live-streaming, sign-language interpretation, audio description and Braille program translation
  • Coordinate marketing and communications to boost awareness of opportunities for audience engagement through digital viewing of performances, creative in-process vlogs, social media links, etc.
  • Create, manage and schedule marketing-related activities to generate momentum and community energy leading up to site-specific performances
  • Schedule and coordinate use of video for discussion and critique of work, in creation and in performance
  • Develop and implement a targeted marketing campaign for potential audiences who cannot attend live performances due to mobility or other access issues
  • Leverage the potential for Propeller’s online followers to “spread the word” about Propeller and its work in building a more inclusive arts world – edit images, live-tweet, update video content, write posts, etc.
  • Monitor and track social media using Google Analytics to create reports
  • Provide additional support to administration and organizational development as required

Requirements:

  • Post-secondary education in and/or experience in digital marketing

  • Experience in, or interest and willingness to learn about, inclusive art-making and the needs of disabled performers and audience members
  • Assets include a love of the performing arts and an appreciation of dance-theatre
