Arts Bus is a unique arts provider based in Randolph, VT. On the road since 2010, Arts Bus, a traveling art studio, engages children, ages 1-14, in the creative process through free arts education throughout central Vermont. When a child (or adult, as Arts Bus welcomes families and child care providers too!), comes aboard the bus they will find a plethora of exciting, innovative activities prepared for them to enjoy: 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 to come on board the bus, and Arts Bus funds its programming through local donations, grants and fundraisers.
Arts Bus 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 be able to recruit, manage, work alongside, and evaluate contract-based artists who provide programming on the bus. In addition, applicants should have the ability to build strong community based relationships. The executive director is currently the only permanent full-time position (presently there is also one grant funded position) Therefor the applicant needs to maintain a strong relationship with the board of directors as well as have strong ability to work independently including preparing budgets, scheduling, and planning . Last and not least, applicants must have a safe driving record and be willing and able to drive the bus.
3-5 years of experience in non-profit management or arts education preferred.
