Now Hiring Festival Marketing Assistant

We are artists creating unique and uninhibited works of arts. We are locals lifting up the voices of those in BC who have something they want to say… or sing, or dance, or show us in their own creative way. We are New Vintage Theatre.
Here at New Vintage, we have some exciting events coming up and one of those is the Kelowna Fringe Festival. At its core, Fringe is a unique showcase of drama, comedy, musical theatre, clown, dance, multi-media works and more. Part of the excitement of this festival is to expect the unexpected. We make a commitment to uplift artists in showcasing talented artists that were chosen at random from a lottery.
We are looking to add a Festival Marketing Assistant to assist our team in advertising and running events like this one. We are looking to add someone who is passionate about the arts, with a strong work ethic and creative mind. If this sounds like you, we invite you to apply.
