Job Opportunity - Project Administrator

The Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE) is proud to announce an
exciting employment opportunity at its Toronto home base. CASE is looking
for a young, ambitious, self-directed, hard-worker to administer a
multi-faceted arts and heritage project.

The project is called Toronto Sound Mosaic and is a three-part historical
investigation into the evolving soundscape of Toronto. The first part
involves holding community workshops with historical experts and community
elders to inspire their acoustic imagination and trigger their sound
memories. The second part involves research into public archives for
information on the evolution of the Toronto soundscape to its present form.
This part will also include documentation on present day Toronto. The third
part will consist of collecting the information accumulated from the
previous phases and orchestrating them into a public outdoor performance.
The accumulated information will also provide the groundwork for an enhanced
CD audio publication to be realized at a future date.

Applicants for the position of Project Administrator must be under the age
of 30, legally eligible to work in Canada, and have just completed cultural
training or have less than four years professional experience and are
currently unemployed, underemployed, or self-employed with an interest in
expanding skills. They should also possess the following attributes:

- Effective written and oral communication skills.
- Solid leadership in planning and organizing group activities.
- Attention to detail in research and archiving.
- Adaptable to learning new skills and technologies.
- Demonstrated interest in heritage and/or sound ecology.

The project administrator will work from the Toronto office of CASE and
report to CASE's board of directors. Applications for the position of
Project Administrator should be in the form of a letter outlining relevant
skills, attributes, professional/academic experience, as well as personal
interest in the areas of heritage and/or sound ecology. A resume and a
letter of reference from a colleague, instructor, or former employer should
also be included. Please mail or deliver applications to the address above
before the deadline: 5 PM on August 16, 1999. Submissions by fax or email
are not acceptable. For more information contact Darren Copeland at
905-822-3918 or
