Call for Workshop Coordinators

Pixelles is looking for two workshop coordinators to help make our monthly workshops happen. Our workshops have always been a pillar of learning and opportunity for the community. Please note that all positions at Pixelles are volunteer-based (even the directors are volunteers) and remote. We are very understanding if you ever need a pause, do less hours or could use a helping hand.

Workshops will be organized by a team of two people with the support of our director, Rebecca. Our workshop events primarily take place outside of working hours or as a lunch & learn (EST / GMT-5). The content consists of a hands-on learning experience, a single speaker, panel, several micro-talks or presentation followed by breakout sessions. On occasion, we partner with studios to provide content and mentoring experiences. All workshops are 100% free and open to the community.

You’ll receive a $300 CAD honorarium for one year. This position is set to start in end of April 2022 (flexible). Applications close April 11th, 2022.

As workshop coordinator, you will:

  • Organize virtual workshops through Zoom and Eventbrite until potentially summer 2022. When the threat of COVID passes, workshops will alternate on-site and virtual schedules
  • Moderate questions during Q&A (virtual only)
  • Update the website with the event description, embed sign-up form and video/slide materials
  • Set up & put away tables, chairs and projector (in-person only, location tbd)
  • Transport and facilitate borrowable laptops (in-person only, location tbd)
  • Verbally introduce the workshop leader, Pixelles and end with goodbyes
  • Organize with your co-coordinators over Slack
  • Collaborate with workshop leaders to refine their workshop content
  • Collaborate with studios on partnered workshop type events
  • Respond to questions and requests for ticket cancellations
  • Ensure the workshop remains a safe space for everyone attending

You are:

  • Underrepresented gender in games (all women, nonbinary, transgender, genderqueer identities including AMAB and transmasculine people)
  • Based in Montréal (though we organize remotely via Slack)
  • Fluent in English and/or French
  • Available for ~5-10 hours a month
  • Have used or willing to learn Slack, Eventbrite, WordPress, Zoom
  • Familiar with game development and Pixelles workshops
  • Ready to organize free workshops for the community!
