The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (the AGGV and the Gallery) is a public art museum that was formed in 1945. Located in Victoria, BC, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, the City is part of the Capital Region and encompasses both rural and urban communities. Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia and the metro core of the Capital Region, with a population of approximately 390,000 and a diverse historical, architectural, and multicultural makeup. The AGGV has a strong reputation in the community and each year the Gallery reaches in excess of 100,000 people in paid admissions and through educational and outreach programming and its interactive collections database and website. The Gallery’s touring exhibits also reach tens of thousands of visitors at host venues provincially, nationally and internationally, linking the world back to the Region.

The Director/CEO will be bold in vision, bring excellence in artistic programming, and be an agent of change with a solid reputation within the arts community. Inspirational in leadership, they will possess exceptional relationship building skills, have a track record of success cultivating and stewarding donors, and ideally have experience overseeing a major fundraising campaign and building project. A demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and strong knowledge of modern-day governance practices is also required.
