- Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable Sector)
- Dance experience is an asset, but not required
- Preference is given to vulnerable populations
How We Define Vulnerable
We engage with people who have been systemically underserved in Canada’s history as well as those that currently experiencing hegemonic inequities (physical, economic, or social). In using the term “vulnerable,” we are not blaming or disempowering vulnerable populations. Instead, we recognize the systemic barriers that prevent people from fully participating in society. We also note that a person’s proximity to hegemonic characteristics (e.g. male, white, urban, cis, heterosexual, wealthy, able-bodied, and thin) affects the degree of their vulnerability.
Hiring from vulnerable populations is critical to the identity of the organization, and it is how we work towards continuously improving our organization & programming to ensure that our work considers the experiences of diverse participants.
SQx is a registered Canadian charity based in South Slocan, BC. Our mission is to use contemporary dance to promote kinship, collaboration, & teamwork. We further the development of dance and public engagement through performance and outreach programming. We use dance to make the world a better place.
Our programs use an innovative and inspiring approach to actively engaging Canada’s youth with arts and culture programming, which stems from the blended social-cultural value of our work.
Both our programs and performances balance the promotion of art & culture with addressing community issues.
Since the onset of COVID we have championed digital engagement in the arts and working remotely to keep our recipient communities and staff safe.
Our work has been presented across Canada and Europe and also in Mexico and Morocco.
Our logo is inspired by a SeQuoia tree, which symbolizes the giant eXperience of our programs and performances.
