Tangled Art + Disability is boldly redefining how the world experiences art and those who create it. We are a registered charitable art + disability organization dedicated to connecting professional and emerging artists, the arts community and a diverse public through creative passion and artistic excellence. Our mandate is to support Deaf, Mad and disability-identified artists, to cultivate Deaf, Mad and Disability arts for artists and audiences of all abilities.

Tangled Art + Disability is seeking Board of Directors members who will bring dedication and vision into our organization. We require persons with previous board experience and a variety of qualifications such as financial expertise, fundraising, donor relations, legal, policy development and human resources knowledge as well as familiarity with contemporary disability arts.

Currently, the Board is comprised of artists and community members with and without disabilities. We are looking to recruit individuals with disabilities with a strong social justice background in the arts. We welcome candidates from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Tangled is strongly committed to equity within its community and to recruiting diverse members of the Board. Tangled encourages applications from all qualified candidates including persons with disabilities, First Nations, Métis and Inuit persons, members of racialized communities and LGBTQ-identified persons.

The Tangled Board of Directors is a working/policy Board. Board members are expected to attend monthly meetings, sit on at least one Board committee and commit to serving a three-year term.
