Bethel Mennonite Church, Winnipeg, strongly supports the continual development and strengthening of the arts in our faith community. Therefore in 2016 it implemented an initial three-year program for an Artist in Residence at Bethel.
Our aim is to embody Bethel’s Vision Statement with creative expressions of faith. In different years alternative artistic genres will be explored. The first Artists in Residence, 2016–17, focused on story-telling; the second Artist in Residence, 2017–18, focused on visual arts. Other suggested areas to be covered include poetry, music, drama/liturgy, visual arts, and culinary/food artistry; other areas of creativity will also be considered.
If you have gifts in any of these areas and you are interested, please send your resume and a one-page proposal to email@example.com. The proposal should identify how you anticipate contributing to the life of the church using the artistic and creative gifts you wish to explore. Please check our website at http://www.bethelmennonite.ca and click on “About” and “Volunteering & Employment” for further information and requirements.
Annual term of service (fall to spring): September to May/June.
Remuneration: Bethel will provide an honorarium of $1000/annum or $500/half-year, and pay any pre-approved expenses for the project(s).
Applications for the term beginning in September, 2018 are invited until March 31, 2018. If you would like to discuss your proposal before you submit it, please feel free to talk to a member of the Worship Committee — call the Church Office at 204-453-2199 for contact information.
