Description

Organization Overview: Since 1987, Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) has cultivated transformative experiences through story and language with readers and writers of all generations. SAL fulfills its mission through educational, public, and community programming, in person and online. Our public literary events bring the most talented and thought-provoking writers of our times to local stages. Our youth programs include Writers in the Schools (WITS) and the Seattle Youth Poet Laureate (YPL) program. WITS places local, professional writers in classroom residencies to inspire K-12 students to discover the power of their creative voices as they develop lifelong writing skills. Our YPL program elevates the powerful voices of local youth poets committed to community engagement, education, and equity in our region.

SAL plays a unique role in our community by using the literary arts to invest in essential community conversations that are national in scope but local in scale. We offer thoughtfully curated experiences through interdependent programs that are intergenerational in nature, bolstering both emerging and established literary artists and inviting change and new perspectives in our audience. We believe these activities are essential to continuously and courageously revitalize equity, justice, and belonging.

At SAL, we value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We are committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and access in all areas of our work. SAL is an equal opportunity employer. Individuals from all cultures and communities are warmly encouraged to apply. SAL strives to create and sustain a diverse and welcoming workplace.

Description

Direct Supervisor: Executive Director
Direct Reports: Marketing & Fundraising Specialist, Fundraising Coordinator (part-time)
Oversight of the following Communication Team Members: Calendar Coordinator,
Digital Marketing Coordinator (both positions report to the Marketing & Fundraising Specialist)
Department: External Communications - Fundraising and Marketing
Position Status:
● Full time – 40 hours/week, $48,000-$52,000 annual salary, with medical & vision
● We are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. When it is safe to return to
in-person we have a flexible in-office schedule M-F 10am - 6pm with options to work
from home upon approval from the Executive Director. The majority of work will be
during weekday business hours, some evening and weekends per needs of events.

OVERVIEW OF POSITION:
We are looking for a passionate, thoughtful, and innovative individual to join Team TeenTix as our Director of Fundraising and Communications. We are seeking an energetic go-getter, who will bring strong organizational and communication skills to lead, manage and strategically advance TeenTix’s external communications and relationships to key organizational stakeholders; teens, individual donors, and TeenTix Partners.

They will collaborate with all members of our team, including staff, Board, Advisory Council,
and committees to execute an annual revenue plan, inclusive of individual support (50%) and earned advertising revenue (1%). TeenTix’s FY21 approved operating budget is $276,000.

This role is directly supported by the Executive Director and a strong working Development
Committee that meets monthly, consisting of philanthropy leaders and fundraising specialists. This group provides strategic advice, execution support, and leadership in major gifts, individual campaigns, events, and fundraising best practices.

TeenTix is an anti-racist organization that is actively working to identify, name, and correct
institutionalized racism and constructs of white supremacy within our own organization, and to help our partnered arts and culture organizations do the same. Our programs work to uplift marginalized voices in arts leadership and arts journalism, and to increase access to art.

We recognize that a key method to shifting constructs of white supremacy and inequities built into traditional fundraising practices is to follow community-centric fundraising principles, such as centering race, supporting our nonprofit partners, valuing transparency with all of our audiences - especially young people, and working together as a tiny but mighty staff to approach all challenges and opportunities as they arise.

Description

Why MoPOP?
We’re glad you’re thinking about joining the team at MoPOP! We believe pop culture is a universal language capable of building connections across a range of people, no matter our differences in race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, education, socio-economic status, ethnicity, country of origin, or any other characteristic that makes us who we are. For more than twenty years, we have been showcasing how music, film, fashion, video games, sports, and more spark those connections and create a lasting cultural impact.

MoPOP provides both a physical space and an emotional and intellectual opportunity for people from any background to explore, find and build community, and recognize their own creative potential. This applies not only to our guests, but also to our staff — be it in designing an educational program to engage the next generation of creators, trying to reach a new audience with a marketing initiative, preserving an artifact in our collection, or providing excellent customer service to a visitor. If this sounds like something you’d be into, we’d love to hear from you!

MoPOP’s Mission and Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
Our mission is to make creative expression a life-changing force by offering experiences that inspire and connect our communities.

In partnership with our community, we hope to also develop safe spaces for their application. This includes taking steps to continue increasing our awareness of institutional “-isms,” as well as uncovering and undoing the ways they show up in museum culture. We recognize this is a process that requires intentionality, energy, and resources, and we are developing a DEIA framework that can cultivate a work environment and museum experience that is truly welcoming for all.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace, and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We believe that having staff, interns, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds enables us to better meet our mission and encourage BIPOC, women, and LGBTQIA+ individuals to apply. We acknowledge that our work to build safe spaces and better systems for traditionally marginalized groups is ongoing and will require constant vigilance and expect all MoPOP employees to be part of our DEIA journey.

Part Time, Hourly Position – 2 hrs/wk. $50-$55 an hour, depending on qualifications. Meets on Thursdays from 4:15PM through 6:15PM. Several concerts throughout the year, usually on evenings and/or weekends.

Reports to: SGC Artistic Director

About Us: Seattle Girls Choir is an organization in which young people are inspired to become the best musicians in the Pacific Northwest, celebrated for their contributions to their community, and encouraged to be their own best advocates. Our combination of music education and youth leadership opportunities provide the 180 youths in our programs aged 5 – 18 with an outlet to express themselves in a world where they are often taught to be silent.

Our Mission: Seattle Girls Choir provides a robust education in the choral arts, helping girls* build skills to succeed in life, and enriching the cultural landscape of the Pacific Northwest.

*encompasses girl-identified youth and gender non-conforming/expansive youth

About Entrata: Part of Seattle Girls Choir’s strength as a program comes from the progression of skill building that occurs as a chorister moves through the organization. However, this can also make it difficult for girls to join SGC past the primary Dolcine years. Entrata is designed to help alleviate that transition into SGC by providing more focused musicianship instruction, so that slightly older girls’ skill levels will more closely match their peers that started younger. Entrata is an entry point for new choristers in grades 4-6 primarily. Entrata choristers learn and perform music, but there is slightly more emphasis on core musicianship and literacy skills. At the end of this year long program Entrata choristers usually move into Vivissimi or Allegra, whichever is most appropriate for their skill level and age. See an example of their work here: https://youtu.be/xQT8bl0BbDg

A written summary of these measures is available upon request. When we are able to meet again in person, our rehearsals meet at the Volunteer Park SDA Church in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. (Please note, we are not a religiously affiliated institution.)

Description


Why MoPOP?
We’re really glad you’re thinking about joining the team at MoPOP! We believe pop culture is a universal language capable of building connections across a range of people, no matter our differences in race, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, education, socio-economic status, ethnicity, country of origin, or any other characteristic that makes us who we are. For more than twenty years, we have been showcasing how music, film, fashion, video games, sports, and more spark those connections and create a lasting cultural impact.

MoPOP provides both a physical space and an emotional and intellectual opportunity for people from any background to explore, find and build community, and recognize their own creative potential. This applies not only to our guests, but also to our staff — be it in designing an educational program to engage the next generation of creators, trying to reach a new audience with a marketing initiative, preserving an artifact in our collection, or providing excellent customer service to a visitor. If this sounds like something you’d be into, we’d love to hear from you!

MoPOP’s Mission and Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
Our mission is to make creative expression a life-changing force by offering experiences that inspire and connect our communities.

In partnership with our community, we hope to also develop safe spaces for their application. This includes taking steps to continue increasing our awareness of institutional “-isms,” as well as uncovering and undoing the ways they show up in museum culture. We recognize this is a process that requires intentionality, energy, and resources, and we are developing a DEIA framework that can cultivate a work environment and museum experience that is truly welcoming for all.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace, and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We believe that having staff, interns, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds enables us to better meet our mission and encourage BIPOC, women, and LGBTQIA+ individuals to apply. We acknowledge that our work to build safe spaces and better systems for traditionally marginalized groups is ongoing and will require constant vigilance and expect all MoPOP employees to be part of our DEIA journey.

Take Heart You Are Not Alone
The Take Heart You Are Not Alone project provides a platform for artists that are survivors of gender-based violence (GBV). During the process of creating artwork for the campaign, the hope is that this action will provide a space to express and heal themselves as well as to help others who are experiencing what they have endured. This artwork is used to inform the impact of GBV on individuals, families, and communities. The purpose of this virtual and public art exhibit is to explore the community responses to gender-based violence and showcase how people can help prevent or address GBV in their families, neighborhoods, and other networks and/or provide support to survivors navigate their healing journeys. Community responses include caring for others who have experienced GBV, mobilizing to raise awareness on and prevent GBV, and building capacity for communities to intervene and promote accountability when harm is done.

Fee to Apply

There is a $10 donation per image submission to participate, each donation is tax deductible and goes to producing the public art. Each artist is encouraged to submit up to 10 images.

Deadline to Apply

Description

The project Take Heart You Are Not Alone, project raises awareness with actions that you can take to move the world closer to eliminate and end violence against women and girls around the world (16 Days of Activism: What You Can Do: Women for Women International, 2019). The focus of this campaign is to surface multiple artistic disciplines that will communicate, educate, and inform the public about gender-based violence and stimulate public conversations, provide direct resources with a hotline as well as provide education for individuals and organizations.

1. Public-Based: We provide public awareness by exhibiting virtual messaging on our website and social media channels as well as illustrating a GBV social message in a public space including billboards and bus boards. We present content on our website and social media channels to provide regular messages to educate and stimulate conversations about gender-based violence. The billboards and bus boards will debut beginning in October 2021 and will be exhibited through December 2021. This public art campaign aims to provide accessible and equitable resources and education for individuals experiencing GBV, as well as motivating the public to become more versed about GBV.

2. Integrated: Bringing the issue of GBV to the forefront is a multi-channel endeavor and the Take Heart You Are Not Alone project leads the way to drive awareness to GBV especially during a global crisis such as a pandemic. Partnerships are essential to get the word out and relationships with Frye Art Museum, Path with Art, the City of Seattle Domestic Violence Department, New Beginnings and Save Art Space, support the continuation of the offering of quality artistic content that engages our audience to lead the community to gender-based violence supportive resources.

3. Responsive: Since we launched our website and social media channels, we have created a communication channel to engage and provide educational resources for survivors, victims, and for supporters on the onset of the pandemic, when most resources were not readily available. This platform will set a new precedence for providing resources for GBV survivors in need.

Our primary goal is to partner with other nonprofit and government entities to ensure that survivors of GBV, survivors and supporters receive the resources and tools to help prevent or address GBV in their families, neighborhoods, and to provide support for survivors navigating their healing journeys. Community responses include caring for others who have experienced GBV, mobilizing to raise awareness on and prevent GBV, and building capacity for communities to intervene and promote accountability when harm is done.

How to Apply

Artists of all ages and talent levels are invited to submit their artwork between July 12 and August 23, 2021. We particularly encourage and welcome submissions from artists who are themselves victims or survivors of domestic violence and/or are members of the LGBTQIA+, BIPOC and immigrant communities. This is your opportunity to have your artwork on ad space in the greater Seattle, WA area.
