Join the Third Space Board of Directors!

We will be electing new members to the Third Space Board of Directors at our Annual General Meeting on October 14th at 7pm at the Imperial Theatre. There will be a virtual meeting option available as well.

Candidates should send contact information, relevant experience and their preference for board position by email with subject line “Board Applicant” to tiersespace@gmail.com before October 9th, 2020.

Being a member of the board is a very rewarding experience that allows members to gain new insights into a contemporary arts organization and develop transferable skills that will aid them in future endeavors.

Third Space is an itinerant artist-run centre for contemporary art in Saint John, New Brunswick. We are committed to representing local, regional and national professional artists. The aim of Third Space is to facilitate the education, understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. We achieve this through our diverse programming including artist residencies, performances, artist talks and workshops, publications, film screenings, and of course the annual THIRD SHIFT festival!
