I've been on the road a lot. This year, I've been across the country twice, with a few treks down to New York City for good measure. I haven't had a permanent home since May and it looks like I won't be needing one until at least October of next year. And that's very exciting. I've got some really great projects coming up and I can't wait to share them with all of you.
But all this traveling has also made me very tired and I need to take better care of myself. Which is why I have come to the realization that I need help. During the Magnetic North Theatre Festival this past June, Industry Series participants took part in informal discussion groups. The one that struck a chord with me the most was about Work-Life Balance.
Ever since that group, I've been toying with the idea of hiring an assistant and I've finally decided to put it out there. I'll post a full job description in the next few days, but I'm looking for a student or an emerging artist who is interested in working with me and acquiring skills in production and marketing. It will require excellent writing skills and fluency in French would be a definite asset. Since I travel a lot, there is no need to be living in the same city, though preference would be given to someone in either Ottawa, Toronto or Montreal. This will be a paid position.
Like I said, I'll be posting an official job description in the next few days, but if you or someone you know is already interested, please send an email to info at nancykenny dot ca for additional information.
