Spokane Arts envisions a region enlivened by arts, culture and creativity, and a regional arts ecosystem that is vibrant and equitable. We serve the Spokane region through grantmaking, arts programming, professional development, and advocacy. We foster creativity by providing direct support to individuals, groups, organizations and businesses in the creative sector, and promote arts and culture to the wider community.
We’re seeking a Program Director who wants to build community through culture, support artists, grow the creative economy, and have fun doing it. Spokane Arts values a work environment that is collaborative, supportive, joyful, and responsive to the community’s needs, which means a wide range of programs and services in our portfolio. We have a small but mighty team who strives to uplift arts and cultural workers, organizations and businesses, and to connect them with resources to better serve their communities. The Program Director is a collaborative, self-motivated leader who thrives on managing multiple projects & enjoys working across creative disciplines. While the Program Director spends much of their time working with local artists, the position is also public-facing: meeting with community organizations, fielding questions about our programs & services, representing the organization to local media, presenting at public meetings. The Program Director works closely with the Executive Director to support Spokane Arts’ mission, vision and values.
We strongly encourage applications from people underrepresented in arts administration, especially Indigenous and POC communities. Spokane Arts recognizes that structural inequities in the U.S. have excluded individuals and communities from opportunities based on race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, class, age, geography, and more. We strive to counter those inequities in our work, and we’re working to build an organization that reflects the diversity of our arts community and region, including staff, board members, consultants, volunteers, and other collaborators.
To apply, please submit a letter of interest, resume, and list of three professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
