Description

Town Hall Seattle is a nonprofit community cultural center, offering a broad program of music, humanities, civic discourse, and world culture events. Formed collaboratively in 1998 as a shared venue, Town Hall Seattle is at once an arts organization and a shared community resource, with a season collectively programmed by the community itself. Town Hall serves more than 100,000 audience members and artists at nearly 500 events annually, and our century-old landmark home has just reopened after a $35 million top-to-bottom renovation.
There’s never been a more exciting time to join our team. The next Program Director will share in defining the voice of our organization in the coming years, exercising responsibility for our diverse self-produced program through series curation, coordination of other curatorial team members, and the development of new programs and new collaborative relationships.
The opportunities for Town Hall at this moment call for an individual with a background in arts, politics, science, literature, advocacy, and/or program management and administration—and curiosity about all of the above. Nonprofit and/or management experience are an advantage, but not essential. This is a full time position, with some nights and weekends required; office hours are consequently flexible.

Reports to: Deputy Director

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

Programming
• Program curation for Town Hall’s Lectures series—including pitching requests, fielding inquiries, confirming events, managing relationships with bookstores and publishers, booking interviewers and coordinating additional program needs.
• Manage program partnerships—represent Town Hall in the community as a potential partner for collaboration on mission-aligned events, attracting new opportunities while maintaining current partnerships with existing producers.
• Coordination and supervision of existing Town Hall curatorial team for Global Rhythms (world music), Town Music (chamber music); Saturday Family Concerts; Short Stories Live; Artist and Scholar in Residency programs; and Digital Media initiatives/podcasts; including scheduling and artist contracting.
• Work with Community Engagement Manager to identify and cultivate opportunities for add-on programs and space activations.
• Participate in Town Hall-produced events, including program introductions; occasional event participation onstage; and receptions/special event hosting.
• Maintain event standards (in coordination with the Production team) through attendance; developing routine and program-specific practices; providing feedback; and soliciting/fielding feedback from speakers, audiences, and partners.
• Collaborate with the Marketing/Communication department to promote events, including approving copy and developing marketing and outreach strategies.

Team Leadership:
• Sits on the organization’s leadership team, participates in organization-wide strategic planning and budgeting; fosters a healthy and positive culture.
• Leads and supervises all department staff (Community Engagement Manager and Digital Media Manager) including performance reviews and professional development.
• Creates the annual programming plan, sets vision and goals for the team.
• Develops the department budget in collaboration with the Executive Director, Deputy Director, and Finance Director.
• Attends Board meetings as required and prepares board updates as needed.

Skills/Knowledge Requirements and Preferences:
• Previous experience in the arts, politics, and/or literature.
• Excellent oral/written communication skills.
• Strong project design/management skills: must be organized and detail-oriented, with the ability to build partnerships, make decisions and solve problems.
• Demonstrated ability to work professionally and tactfully with donors, members, the public, the press, and coworkers; support management decisions in a positive, professional manner.
• Previous experience managing/mentoring staff and managing departmental budgets preferred.
• Experience with CRM software (e.g. Salesforce) preferred.

Structure:
• This is a full-time, exempt, salaried position (40 hours/week). The salary range is 58,000-68,000 annually (DOE). Benefits package includes fully-paid medical & dental insurance, subsidized bus pass, and matched 403(b) plan. Generous vacation, sick leave, and holidays.


Reflecting the creativity and concerns of our region, Town Hall’s program aspires to host the broadest possible range of voices and interests. Diversity within the organization’s staff advances our mission and work. We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply, including people of color, immigrants, refugees, women, LGBTQ, people with disabilities, veterans, and those with diverse life experiences.

How to Apply

Send cover letter, resume, and three professional references to jobs@townhallseattle.org with “Program Director” in the subject line.
Resumes requested by January 15, 2020, but position will remain open until filled.

This area is accessible via the 1st and University entrance of SAM and is free and open to the public during the hours the museum is open.
Each show must:
-Be composed of 2D work
-Fill the entirety of the first floor corridor
-Feature more than one artist
-Show for about one month
The Space
Please feel free to come by and see the space in person. If you choose to do so, email Jenn at jennc@seattleartmuseum.org and she will meet you and answer any question you might have, as her schedule allows. Please also feel free to email Jenn at any time should questions come up for you.
7 panels are available for use, in the following dimensions:
1. 96 in wide x 48 in high (landscape)
2. 96 in wide x 48 in high (landscape)
3. 40 in w x 89 in h (portrait)
4. 40 in w x 89 in h (portrait)
5. 96 in w x 48 in h (landscape)
6. 47 in w x 47 in h (square)
7. 96 in x x 49 in h (landscape)
Installation
It’s helpful for groups to include one panel of text providing context for their show, which can either be displayed on the boards for the gallery itself, or held in an 11/17 sign holder, or displayed on an easel if it is foam core or similar material.
Artwork labels are preferred, in order to provide a platform and recognition for the artists whose works are on view. If you need these printed at SAM, please let us know ahead of time and we can assist.
Installations are smoothest when they can occur on a Monday or Tuesday when the museum is closed, near the beginning or end of the month. We can be flexible, though, if needed.
SAM has a simple install kit which includes: hammers, nails, hooks, levels, tape measures, tape, pens, pencils, scissors and a small drill. Since you are installing on display boards that are quite forgiving, it’s unlikely you’ll need much more than this. Heavy 2D objects are difficult to display in this space, and must be confirmed on a case by case basis. Generally, framed paper-based work, cardboard, and stretched canvas works display well in this space.

The ACRE Residency Program takes place every summer in rural Southwest Wisconsin. Developed as a means to support emerging visual artists, sound artists, musicians, performers, writers and curators, the program provides artists with the opportunity to expand upon their individual practices as well as take part in optional programming within a collaborative community. ACRE’s 14-day residencies host 25-30 residents at a time. Additionally, visiting artists are invited to conduct studio visits and present lectures, discussions, and workshops.

Set on 1,000 acres of wetland, hills, and farmland, the residency facilities include expansive communal work-spaces, a screen-printing studio, an outdoor wood shop, fibers studio, ceramics studio, an art & tech facility, and a sound studio. Shared accommodations are furnished with bathrooms, kitchenettes, and porches. All meals are provided, and are prepared daily using ingredients grown in the surrounding area.

Over the subsequent year, ACRE endeavors to provide further opportunities for exposure, community building, and professional development to its alumni. ACRE works with a board of Curatorial Fellows to produce exhibitions at our Chicago gallery, ACRE Projects, and partners with independent galleries and curatorial projects around Chicago to provide connections, resources, and public programming, performance, and other exhibition opportunities to our alumni following the residency program. All alumni are also given web space on ACRE’s digital flatfile, which is used for consideration for participation in exhibitions and other opportunities. These efforts complement other activities and programming designed to create the conditions for a thriving and enduring arts network.

Description

Mineral School is an artists residency located in a former 1947 elementary school near Mt. Rainier, in Mineral, Washington. During 2020, we're offering four two-week residency sessions to poetry and prose writers, as well as visual artists, providing accepted applicants with space and time to create new work without the interruptions of normal life and with the bonus of healthy meals prepared by culinary volunteers using locally-grown organic food whenever possible. During September 2020, we'll offer one one-week residency to 4 writers or artists who are parents of children under 18, through support from the Sustainable Arts Foundation.

Each resident will live in an 800-square foot former classroom that offers peekaboo views of Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier, and that will double as their writing studio, with desk and chair, lighting, bookcase, and lots of chalkboards. Visual artist residents will be offered space to work outside of their classrooms (unless they wish or want work in their medium in the room where they sleep). The school building has shared bathrooms with showers. Residents are served all meals daily (plus 24/7 access to a snack fridge and coffee/tea station), and will have the opportunity to share work with the public. Mineral features a swimmable fishing lake, boat rentals, a bar, a B&B, a general store, churches, a post office, and many deer. It's a 25-minute drive to Mt. Rainier National Park.

Visiting authors and artists: During each two-week residency, special guests will visit and present work. Typically, alumni presenters will visit and in some cases bring with them a special guest artist they've chosen to introduce to Mineral.

Resident presentations: If they wish, residents can share with one another and the public at our monthly residents' "show and tell" held during residency. These presentations are held after dinner in our library/multi-purpose room and are casual dessert potlucks.

We are accepting applications from January 1, 2020, through February 15, 2020 (Midnight, PST) for 2020 residencies. Notification will be given at least two months before the residency period for which you've applied.



2020 RESIDENCY DATES

Residency sessions are held during the following time periods.

Two-week residency periods:

May 10-May 24, 2020: Mixed-genre Residency

June 14-June 28, 2020: Mixed-genre Residency

July 19-August 2 2020: Mixed-genre Residency

August 16-August 30, 2020: Mixed-genre Residency

One-week parents' residency:

September 11-September 19, 2020: Mixed-genre Residency (parents only)



FELLOWSHIP OPTIONS

Mineral School offers a mix of paid and funded residency spots. Our fellowships are competitive and we try to keep our paid spots inexpensive and accessible. If you'd like to pursue a fellowship, please know that on your fellowship application you can choose whether or not to remain in consideration for a paid spot should we be unable to grant you a funded one. We designed applications this way so you pay only one fee to apply but are juried as broadly as desired. (In other words, don't apply for both a fellowship and a paid spot -- just apply for the fellowship and mark that you'd remain in consideration for a paid spot should you not receive a fellowship.)

We're pleased to offer a total of 10 fellowships in 2020.

June Dodge Writing Fellows (4, any session) attend a mixed-genre summer residency session for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, in addition to room and board, visits by presenting authors, and opportunities to share work publicly. These fellowships are open to writers from the Pacific Northwest (AK, ID, MT, OR, WA) and Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon).

The Erin Donovan Writing Fellow (1, August 2020) is for an emerging woman writer of poetry or prose living in Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, or Washington, who is 40 or older, and whose writing expresses both wit and compassion. This fellowship covers the residency fee (room and board, guest presenters, options to present) and includes travel reimbursement up to $175 (for OR/WA residents) or up to $400 (for MA/NY residents). This fellowship is supported by loved ones of Erin Donovan, an Oregon fiction writer, teacher, and outdoors woman who died in 2015.

The Mona Lisa Roberts Visual Arts Fellowship (1) supports a visual artist (graphic novelist/comics artist, painter, photographer, fabric artist, paper artist, etc.) who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency during summer (June, July, or August) and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between. Depending on the medium and artist's preference, they can work in the studio room where they sleep, spread out in the gym, or improvise outdoors. Feel free to contact us about space needs before applying.

SAF Parent Fellowships (4, September 2020) support four parent artists from anywhere in North America. If you have parenting responsibilities for a child 18 or under, you are welcome to apply. Accepted artists attend for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA (including from those cities' airports, and Amtrak or Bolt bus stops) along the I-5 corridor, in addition to room and board, visits by presenting artists, and opportunities to share work.



PAID RESIDENCY OPTIONS

We're pleased to offer 10 nominally-priced residencies in 2020.

Two-week residencies for poets, writers and visual artists (painters, illustrators, graphic novelists, makers, photographers, fabric artists, paper artists, and other media) cost $425 and include room, board, presentations by guest writer and artists, opportunities for public presentation, and lots of love. Visual artists bring their own materials and may use as studio space their room, the school's grounds, covered patio, the gym stage, or plein air sites of their choice; we have ample tables and space which can be configured around your needs. If you are a visual artist and are in doubt about whether you can accomplish your medium in our space, write to us before applying at mineralschoolarts@gmail.com. Travel is not included; travel from points between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, to Mineral may be arranged ($20-30/each way).

Description

The Architectural League, one of the country’s leading cultural organizations devoted to architecture and the designed world, is launching American Roundtable, a new initiative that will bring together on-the-ground perspectives on the condition of American communities and what they need to thrive going forward. The Architectural League will commission up to ten editorial teams to produce reports featuring diverse voices, expressed through diverse media, creating portraits and agendas for places they know well. The initiative focuses on small cities and towns and rural areas. Commissioned teams will be awarded $10,000 to support their work, which will be published digitally on archleague.org and in a series of print publications.

American Roundtable will commission up to ten editors (or editorial teams) to prepare reports on small- to mid-size communities across the United States. The reports will be published online and as a series of standard format print publications in September 2020.

Those interested in assembling a team to explore a locale are invited to submit an editorial proposal and their qualifications for review. The editor, or at least one member of the editorial team, must have a design background (architect, planner, architectural historian, etc). A selection committee will commission up to ten teams to produce reports soon after the Call for Proposals deadline in February 2020. The selection committee will seek to ensure geographic diversity across the United States and diversity in terms of the types of communities represented.
