End Date: August 21, 2016
Arts Bus Inc. is a unique arts provider serving central Vermont. On the road since 2010, the Arts Bus is a traveling art studio, engaging children ages 1-14 in the creative process through free arts experiences. When children (or adults, as the Arts Bus welcomes families and child care providers too!) come aboard the bus they find a plethora of exciting, innovative activities prepared for them, including visual arts, dance, theater, and music, limited only by the boundless imaginations of our artists and the children themselves. There is never a charge to participants: Arts Bus Inc. funds its programming through local donations, grants, and fundraisers.
Arts Bus Inc. seeks a creative and dynamic executive director to take the lead at this small but growing non-profit. Applicants must have a proven track record in preparing and obtaining grants and cultivating donors. Successful candidates should also have experience in an arts or education field, and must be able to recruit, manage, work alongside, and evaluate the contract-based artists who provide programming on the bus. In addition, applicants must have the ability to build strong community-based relationships. The executive director is currently the only permanent full-time position, supervising one grant-funded position, and must also have strong ability to work independently, including preparing budgets, scheduling, planning, and maintaining a strong relationship with the board of directors. Applicants must have a drivers license and a safe driving record and be able to drive the bus (CDL is not required). Experience using Wordpress is a must.
5 years of experience in non-profit management preferred.
To apply please send a resume, cover letter, and the contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadline: August 21, 2016.
