Executive Co-Director, Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York

The Organization

Founded in 1972, A.R.T./New York assists over 400 member theatres in managing their theatre companies effectively so they may realize their rich artistic visions and serve their diverse audiences well. Over nearly five decades, A.R.T./New York has earned a reputation as a leader in providing progressive services to our members—from shared office and rehearsal spaces to technical assistance programs for emerging theatres—which have made the organization an expert in the needs of the New York City nonprofit theatre community. A.R.T./New York’s 400 member companies are the heart of what we do, and we provide them with four core areas of support, funding, training, space and connections.

Position Overview

A.R.T./New York seeks experienced candidates to fill the role of Co-Director on a new Executive Leadership Team. Aligned with our values, the two-director team will jointly oversee an annual budget of approximately $7,000,000, a full-time staff of 19 and a part-time staff of 31 delivering a growing slate of services to New York’s nonprofit theatre sector. Specific responsibilities and areas of focus will vary based on the skills and interests of each director, as discussed with board and staff during the interview process and finalized in collaboration between Co-Directors upon hiring.  We are not looking for a unicorn who can be everything at once. We are looking for a leader excited to collaboratively originate a shared leadership model in which two partners’ complementary skills and passions contribute to achieving shared goals.

In our shared leadership model, two Co-Directors will partner in the responsibility of leading ART/New York.  We expect the Co-Directors to take the first year of their collaboration to determine the distribution of responsibilities and find an appropriate balance between supporting one another and leading together and independently.

These responsibilities include:

  • Lead the charge in championing nonprofit theater in New York City and throughout New York State
  • Articulate and communicate the vision and strategic plan of the organization with input from members, staff, and board
  • Ensure that values align across stakeholders
  • Champion diversity, accessibility, and inclusion across the organization
  • Advocate for our sector with elected and appointed government officials and through working with our lobbyist
  • Set annual advocacy and departmental priorities in collaboration with members, staff, and board
  • Foster collaboration between departments and manage teams
  • Guide the development and review of communication strategies
  • Maintain and manage the organization’s budget; develop and review fiscal management policies; set revenue goals
  • Set grantmaking priorities and policies with Grants staff
  • Participate in governance, oversight, and compliance with the board
  • Establish accountability benchmarks and auditing policies
  • Attend Ethics and Accountability Committee meetings, staff work sessions and trainings, and occasional programmatic or grantmaking panel sessions
  • Develop policies that create a safe, productive, welcoming experience in our spaces for staff, renters, and visitors and sustain reliable growth of rental revenue
  • Negotiate major vendor contracts and leases effectively and efficiently, with input from staff and board
  • Oversee the management of existing infrastructure and lead staff in the development of new systems
  • Cultivate new individual and institutional donors and strategically manage existing donor relationships
  • Review and revise external communications, marketing, and branding as needed

How To Apply

Submit your application materials via this form.

You will be asked to include the following:

  • A recent resume, either in traditional pdf format or as a link to a digital copy
  • Responses to a few questions in short-answer format, traditional cover letter, video, or audio file

In both the hiring process and employment practices, A.R.T./New York is deeply committed to accessibility for those who are d/Deaf, disabled, and/or neurodivergent. Your application materials may be submitted in writing, audio, or video format. Initial interviews will be held via Zoom. If you are asked to interview, we will provide you with the following:

  • A copy of interview questions in advance
  • A list of who will be interviewing you

  • Automated captioning during the interview (provided by Zoom)

The Organization

Founded in 1940, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. The RBF’s grantmaking is organized around three themes: Democratic Practice, Peacebuilding, and Sustainable Development.

Development Manager of Grants and Foundation Relations, Cabrini Green Legal Aid

The Organization

Cabrini Green Legal Aid (CGLA) was established in 1973 to serve the legal needs arising from the lack of opportunity, criminalization of poverty, and racial inequity experienced within Chicago’s Cabrini Green public housing community. Since then, CGLA has grown beyond a single neighborhood to become a citywide, countywide, and statewide leader in proactively filling the void of legal representation, wraparound services, legal information and resources, and advocacy exclusively for low-income individuals negatively impacted by the criminal legal system. Any engagement with the criminal legal system can greatly disrupt an individual, family, and community’s quality of life.

CGLA is distinguished among legal aid service providers locally, throughout Illinois, and nationally as having expertise in legal matters related to the direct and collateral consequences of the criminal legal system. Since 2014, we have been the sole legal aid services provider serving Cook County with the distinction of focusing exclusively on individuals and families who have been adversely impacted by the criminal legal system in all legal program areas: criminal records, emerging adults, criminal defense, housing law, and family law. We provide direct legal services, advocate for policy reforms, and provide legal information and resources to other legal aid organizations, pro bono attorneys, and the general public. We also support our clients holistically with wraparound social services from our social workers. Our policy and advocacy work is not performed as a separate entity; rather it is informed by our legal services and the lived experiences of our Leadership Council, an Advisory Group made up of former CGLA clients and community members directly impacted by the criminal legal system.

CGLA’s Mission, Purpose and Vision

  • Mission: We provide holistic legal services that include social support services and advocacy for individuals and communities negatively impacted by the criminal legal system.
  • Purpose: CGLA exists to remove barriers to equity in the criminal legal system.
  • Vision: A more just and equitable criminal legal system.

For example, our cornerstones are designed to help ensure that:
