Description

A Town Hall season reflects a calendar full of author interviews and artist tributes, chamber concerts and cooking demos, panel discussions and poetry slams, national and internationally recognized figures alongside community orchestras, children’s choirs, and the regional spelling bee. Town Hall Seattle (THS) is a beloved building and the collection of ideas and creativity within it. Since its founding, THS has become a shared piece of Seattle’s civic and cultural infrastructure and a world class performance environment dedicated to broad community use—an open and inviting place that strives for an authentic experience of community through ideas and culture.

Town Hall continually affirms its commitment to hosting a wide spectrum of programming and perspectives on its stages to foster deeper understanding, increased empathy, and mutual respect in our civic discourse. Town Hall was founded to be an accessible shared resource for the community and a place where everyone is welcomed. It remains committed to continual progress in making anti-racism, intersectional equity, and inclusion part of the fabric of the organization.

Town Hall has seen impressive growth over the past two decades and is reemerging post COVID poised to fully engage the promise of its beautifully renovated building, just steps from downtown on First Hill on a fully renovated block. Hosting 400+ events annually, half produced by Town Hall and half by its rental partners, THS brings a diversity of programming to its 4,000 members, 100,000 annual visitors, and the Seattle community. Town Hall Seattle now looks to welcome its next Executive Director, who will join a dynamic and dedicated staff and board ready to dream and plan the next arc of impact as a catalytic cultural force in Seattle.

The new Executive Director will collaborate with staff, board, and community members to articulate an organizational direction and curate a vision that contributes to the rich tapestry of Seattle’s cultural and civic life and strengthens community connections. They will bring creative and sophisticated thinking to expanding audiences and impact as well as fostering partnerships and donor relationships across the nonprofit community, civic leaders, membership, and other supporters. The ED will balance sound organizational management with programmatic vision, capacity building, and people development so that Town Hall can most effectively fulfill its mission.

Compelling candidates will be curious and expansive thinkers who are passionate about arts, ideas, science, civic engagement, and culture. They will be natural relationship builders who can invite diverse voices into a shared vision for collaborative programming and leverage a mastery of fundraising across the full spectrum of donors. They will be seasoned organizational leaders with a demonstrated commitment to investing in the team and providing pathways for their growth and talents to shine. They will have the savvy to connect vision, place, people, organizational design, and creativity for mission and impact. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and imaginative individual with the organizational leadership expertise to support Town Hall in pursuit of our region’s highest aspirations: creativity, empathy, and expansive thinking.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Executive Director will join Town Hall Seattle at a moment of great opportunity and will work closely with the board, staff, presenting partners, donors, members, and the community at large to develop a shared vision for the next evolution of programming and community impact. Specifically, they will bring leadership to the following core areas:

Vision & Strategic Direction: The Executive Director will realize a shared vision that reflects the vibrancy, diverse communities, and ethos of the city—one that both stretches our collective imagination and roots us in our connection to one another. This will be accomplished most effectively by nurturing strong connections and developing a keen understanding of how Town Hall’s community-driven programming is uniquely positioned to be responsive to the pulse and rhythm of the region. The ED will provide strategic direction to program development that leverages the full capabilities of the building while continuing to explore how THS leverages hybrid and virtual models to expand its reach. They will develop a thoughtful approach to audience development and engagement in partnership with staff and board that builds on its strong member and audience base while intentionally building pathways for newer audiences.
Fundraising & Sustainable Business Planning: The Executive Director will steward continued strong relationships among key individual and foundation supporters and rental and programming partners to nurture their continued partnership and investment in Town Hall’s mission. They will bring a strategic and integrated approach to expanding membership, increasing rental revenue, and cultivating new donors to ensure a continued sustainable funding and business model.

Organizational Management: The Executive Director will inspire, unite, and mobilize a talented and dedicated team of department leaders, administrative staff, and production specialists. They will continue to invest in people management, DEI, and professional development initiatives that support and retain a diverse and dedicated staff. They will foster a culture of shared leadership across all levels of the organization, grounding processes and decision-making in shared values, clarifying roles, responsibilities, and accountability, and prioritizing inclusion and equity to ensure a thriving internal culture. This includes strengthening internal leadership structures that integrate artistic/programmatic and business leadership to ensure strong organizational capacity. The Executive Director will be responsible for management of 23 administrative staff, 25 part-time event staff, and an annual operating budget of $3M.

Relationship Stewardship: With community at the heart of Town Hall, the ED will serve as the guiding force for relationship building among a broad diversity of individuals and organizations across the arts and culture ecosystem with an eye to fostering authentic collaborations, particularly with organizations that have not partnered with THS before. They will embrace a commitment to supporting a vibrant city and First Hill neighborhood and contribute to a culture of collaboration and partnership among local businesses and Seattle’s many nonprofit and civic organizations.

Board Partnership & Development: The Executive Director will work closely with the board to identify current and future leadership needs and cultivate relationships to support next-level board membership and development. Collaboratively, they will expand board capacity by fostering a culture of continued learning, engagement, transparency, and accountability to drive sustained leadership and organizational effectiveness of THS. Together, they will engage in organizational planning and deepen their equity journey to ensure a vibrant and healthy Town Hall for years to come.

Description

4Culture and King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) will commission two artists or artist-led teams to create intrigue and stimulate curiosity, raise awareness, and foster an emotional connection to the largely invisible Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) system.

This exciting opportunity is connected to a new project site, the West Duwamish Wet Weather Storage Facility located in West Seattle. The artists selected for this project will have the opportunity to create meaningful artwork that engages issues of social, economic, and environmental relevance. We encourage collaboration with communities in the area throughout the project duration. Over the course of the project, the selected artist will be in close dialogue with 4Culture and the WTD staff.

Considering the West Duwamish site, the selected artists will be asked to consider the following topic and opportunity as outlined in the CSO Art Master Plan (more information below):

Topic, The End of the Line – The end of the line is where the built system meets the natural one at our regional bodies of water. This topic considers our relationship and connection to the system & where it connects to these bodies of water. How do we relate to these bodies of water? How can this topic connect us directly to these waters, like built tributaries to a river?

Project Duration, Short-Term – The artistic outcome may include a performance, publication, film or video, event, installation, as well as a temporary intervention or artist-initiated action. The outcome will likely happen in the surrounding communities and in connection with community partners.

ELGIBILITY
Open to artists residing in King County, WA. Artists in a range of disciplines may apply, including performing, literary, visual, time-based media, and social practice. Up to two artists will be commissioned. The artistic outcome may include performances, publications, films or videos, events, installations, as well as temporary interventions or artist-initiated actions.

BUDGET
$40,000 each ($8,000 fee, up to $32,000 for implementation). Budgets are inclusive of artist fee, and implementation. Washington State Sales/Use Tax may apply depending on the artist work.

How to Apply

Submission of an online application is required for this opportunity.

Title: Teaching Artist
Status: Part time, variable
Compensation: $65/hr for actual teaching hours
$40/hr meetings and trainings

Reports to: Education Manager
Overview
Youth in Focus’ mission is to prepare the next generation of creative thinkers to meet the
emerging needs of a global society, by amplifying teen voice through photography and arts
education.
We believe all youth should have equitable access to quality arts education. We provide
after-school, summer, and partner programs for teens aged 13-19 furthest from education
justice defined as youth of color, youth facing poverty/housing insecurity, those for whom
English is not their first language, and LGBTQ+ youth. We focus on Social & Emotional
Learning, 21st century skills, and technical photography and digital media skills, to ensure
students have the tools and confidence they need to succeed in education, life, and career. We offer pay-what-you-can tuition and free bus passes to make our programs accessible to all.
At Youth in Focus we value art as a powerful medium of change to create a healthy, vibrant,
more equitable and just society for all. Through this work, we aim to confront and dismantle
systemic oppression in all of its forms.

As we look to our future, Youth in Focus is committed to serving even more students furthest from education justice and continuing our work to become an anti-racist organization. Our supportive and inclusive community provides a sense of belonging and safety for youth, fostering positive connections between youth and caring adults.
We’re looking to add someone to the team who is excited to be a part of our mission and
growth! We value talents as much as skills, lived experience as much as education, and if you see yourself in this role given our preferred qualifications, we strongly encourage you to apply.

YIF Program Goals
1. Safe and Supportive Environment: Create a place for youth to learn and grow where
everyone feels valued and has a sense of belonging. Reinforce and model positive
relationships with caring adult teachers and mentors.
2. Equitable Access to Arts Education: Forge pathways and eliminate opportunity gaps
for those students furthest from educational justice.
3. 21st Century Skills: Teach creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking,
perseverance, and growth mindset so youth are prepared to succeed and thrive in
education, life, and / or career. Ensure students can name the skills they have
developed and readily understand how to transfer them to other areas of their life.
4. Planning and Leadership: Involve youth voice in planning, co-creating, and facilitating
activities.
5. Empathy and Tolerance: Through art and photography, inclusive dialogue, and
exposure to others from diverse backgrounds, cultivate empathy and tolerance
amongst youth participants to foster a healthy, vibrant, and more equitable society.

relevant syllabi and lessons for a highly diverse student body.

● Ability to explain and illustrate technical and artistic concepts to youth
● Proficiency with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Trauma Informed Care

Teaching opportunities beginning in January 2023

Teaching Opportunities May Include:
● Weekly In-Person Partner programs, 1-2 hours per week (1-2 hours session), dates
and times variable
● Bi-weekly after school programs, 5 hours per week (2.5 hours/session; M/W or T/TH

We also pay the meeting rate ($40/hr) for mandatory training sessions and approved meetings. In addition, TAs are reimbursed mileage for off-site programs and meetings if over 5 miles one-way.

Description

Gallery 4Culture seeks solo, collaborative and group exhibition proposals in a broad range of media for our next season, which runs from September 2023 through July 2024. Ten (10) month-long shows by King County-based artists will ultimately be presented. The gallery is dark in December and August. Emerging artists and those whose approach to studio practice is underrepresented in commercial venues are encouraged to apply. Installation and site-responsive artwork will be prioritized.

Selected artists, teams and groups receive curatorial direction, communications/PR support, and a $1,000 honorarium to help defray expenses. Artists are responsible for the delivery, installation and de-installation of their work, and for supplying and insuring all electronic equipment used in their show. The gallery space is adjacent to a busy conference room and open office; consequently, the sound levels of audio components will be restricted. While Gallery 4Culture is not a commercial venue, exhibiting artists are welcome to offer their works for sale. Any sale of art is handled directly between the artist and collector; 4Culture takes no commission.

How to Apply

Submission of an online application is required for this opportunity.
