We’re looking for a dynamic, bilingual leader skilled at building cross-sector relationships grounded in shared values of trust and action. A person passionate about advocacy and developing artists’ leadership capacity will thrive in this role. We seek a natural connector who enjoys working with everyone from parents and artists to government and business owners. The Community Organizer will facilitate meaningful collaboration among partners to inform and forward the Arts Council’s strategic goals and committee work plans. Being physically out in the community across the county is an essential part of this work. It’s an exciting time to join the Arts Council’s team to invest in artists as leaders, bring different voices/experiences into decision-making, and increase access to and participation in community wellbeing through the arts. Working closely with the Deputy Director, the Community Organizer will provide thought partnership and support planning by sharing field observations and identifying opportunities and areas for growth. The Organizer’s work is complementary to the Deputy Director, who focuses on forging partnerships that advance the organization’s strategic goals.
