Join the board

Figureworks is a biennial juried art prize and celebration of the art of the human form. We are a Canadian, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization based in Ottawa, Ontario. Our mission is to cultivate and exhibit art of the human form, to bring together a community of artists, and to celebrate their art through the Figureworks prize.

Figureworks is organized and governed by a dedicated group of board members and volunteers. We are always looking for more volunteers

Apply to join the Figureworks board of directors

Our volunteer board of directors determines the orientation of Figureworks and undertakes the work to make our initiatives happen. We host one large juried show and award ceremony every two years, and hold around eight board meetings per year. We lead and participate in jury selection and process, put on smaller events, develop policy, and provide logistical support to selected artists.

We are looking for candidates for whom this sort of work would contribute to their own development and who are also able to contribute some skills, time, and energy.

Areas that we identify as particularly useful in the coming year include:

  • Accounting
  • Digital communications
  • Diversity and Inclusion Outreach
  • Event planning
  • Fund development / Grant writing
  • Volunteer recruitment
