About the organization, and the coordinator’s role within it

The Program Coordinator is a challenging, far-reaching position that connects directly with The Luminary’s vision as an incubator for new ideas in the arts. Founded in 2007, The Luminary is a forum for artistic research, production and presentation, conceived in response to both our immediate and international community, alongside our audiences, and in dialogue with artists.

The basis of the organization is experimentation and engagement. We propose, support and present exceptional art embedded in social and cultural contexts, viewing contemporary art as an essential expression of our time.

Beyond promoting various modes of artistic exploration, The Luminary investigates its own infrastructure as an artist-run organization in order to advance the understanding of our potentialities within broader social, cultural and political frameworks. Taken together, we seek to be an institution of our time, as malleable as the work we strive to support.

The Program Coordinator is responsible for a wide range of tasks relating to the administration and operations of The Luminary’s visual arts programming, which currently includes the residency and studio programs, exhibitions, lectures, workshops, fundraisers and more to be determined, we’re sure.

The Program Coordinator works with The Luminary’s Co-Directors to define the scope and activities of The Luminary’s visual art programming and oversees the day-to-day management of the gallery and programs. Our staff each work alongside artists, sometimes as artists, but always in view of expanding art into a conversation among unexpected audiences.
