Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is seeking a part-time employee for the new position of Public Programs Manager.
Founded in 1999 and based in Toronto, Prefix is a registered charitable organization that fosters the appreciation and understanding of contemporary photo, media and digital art. Internationally recognized for the publication of Prefix Photo magazine, the organization also mounts exhibitions in its visual, audio and surround art galleries, circulates travelling shows, maintains a public reference library, publishes books, and presents a broad range of public programs, including an annual speakers series.

Applicants with education or experience in only one of these areas are nonetheless encouraged to apply, as Prefix will provide training to the successful candidate, as needed.
