Join the Modern Fuel Team

Modern Fuel values diversity in its participants and community, encouraging applications from all qualified individuals. While recognizing that the identity of each person is fundamentally plural, multidimensional, changing and evolving, we strongly encourage applications from individuals who are: Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit), Black, POC, racialized (including recent immigrants), 2SLGBTQQIPAA+, neurodivergent, disabled, living with chronic illness and/or chronic pain. Modern Fuel is strongly committed to supporting a wide range of cultural identities and lived experiences, therefore we encourage applicants to self-identify in their application if they are comfortable doing so.

Current Positions Open


Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre is seeking 2 – 3 motivated individuals to serve as Modern Fuel Ambassadors. Reporting to the Executive Director, each Ambassador will assume a leadership role in the organisation and will be responsible for supporting programs, representing us at outreach events, and assisting with fundraising initiatives. This is a flexible, contract position which will often require evening and weekend availability. 



The Modern Fuel Board of Directors is a working Board. Board members are expected to attend monthly meetings, sit on at least two Board committees, attend Modern Fuel events, and serve a two-year term. Ideal candidates will help develop and implement strategies that will generate revenue, attract new supporters, expand our community connections, and build the artist-run centre’s profile in the Kingston community and across the country. 


All those who are interested in pursuing a placement with Modern Fuel are encouraged to contact our Executive Director by emailing

Queen’s University

We accept undergraduate interns from Queen’s University’s Department of Art History. The interested student must have a faculty member to supervise the internship and must get in touch with us to discuss possible placements two months in advance of the start of term (June/July for Fall Internships, October/November for Winter Internships). 

St. Lawrence College

We also accept students from St. Lawrence College’s Advertising and Marketing Program for their final placement. We are unable to accept students for their second year placement. 

Modern Fuel Artist Run Center offers communication between the arts community and elsewhere through its excellent programming including not only exhibitions but also through a regular publication, a resource center, experimental music and performance, rental equipment with guidance on use of equipment, and as a site of residencies, research and production. I particularly enjoy the monthly artist talks where artists and the general public exchange ideas and feedback and stay informed on the many ways that the arts impact our lives in positive ways.
