THEME
TRUE BLUE- The color blue is the most universally appealing color on the spectrum. It can represent trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, and sensitivity. But it can also convey fragility, depression, impersonality, and even coldness. There was a time when the pigment blue was the rarest and most precious shade of all. Some artists even went into debt just to use the color! With so many intriguing shades of blue to work and so many meanings and representations, show us TRUE BLUE through your perspective.

Description

In 1962, Wing Luke made history, elected as the first person of color on the Seattle City Council and the first Asian American elected to public office in the Pacific Northwest. His unique combination of politics, compassion, and advocacy of diverse communities made him a powerful force for equal housing, urban revival, and historic preservation of the Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, and the Seattle Waterfront. Wing Luke was a trailblazer of his time. After his untimely death in a plane crash, the community founded the museum to uphold Wing Luke’s legacy.

The Wing Luke Museum was established to empower the AAPI voice and strengthen the work of diverse neighborhood partners in the face of enduring racism, using exhibitions and programs to center identity, healing, and community empowerment with intersecting discussions of issues such as discrimination, classism, or transphobia/heterosexism.

The Wing Luke Museum continues to serve as the neighborhood’s cultural and artistic anchor and as one of its economic drivers. Its distinctive role as a pan-AAPI museum (representing 26+ ethnic/cultural groups) has invigorated the community. As a Smithsonian Affiliate, National Park Service Affiliated Area, and the only pan-Asian Pacific American museum in the nation, the Wing Luke Museum is a national treasure, preserving and sharing the narratives of the Asian Pacific American community. Through its unique, community-rooted Community Advisory Committees (CACs), WLM has institutionalized a practice of engaging everyday community members to envision and implement exhibitions, programs, and projects to create powerful, authentic stories and experiences. CACs are the curators and direct decision-makers, determining messages, themes/storylines, content, design, and engaging their communities, a framework for which WLM is nationally renowned. WLM’s deep commitment to its community and the Chinatown-International District Historic Neighborhood in Seattle (“C-ID”), ensures the community has a strong platform to share their experiences and voice their perspectives on critical issues.

PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

Historical Museum and Cultural Storytellers: The Wing Luke Museum welcomes 80,000 visitors annually who leave transformed by the museum experience. Its 60,000 square foot museum occupies a historic hotel in the C-ID and offers three floors where visitors are immersed in community stories with contemporary galleries showcasing both temporary and permanent exhibitions as well as preserved historic spaces accessible only through daily guided tours. The museum invites visitors to explore its historic Chinatown-International District neighborhood through a vibrant and popular walking-tour program that brings visitors into local restaurants and businesses. A long-standing partner of the Bruce Lee family, WLM will open a fifth installation celebrating Bruce Lee in 2022. At its heart, the Wing Luke Museum tells the story of the neighborhood and encourages visitors to explore beyond the Museum’s walls.

Local and National Collaborators and Partners: The Wing Luke Museum supports community and school-based Asian Pacific American history projects in a myriad of ways by providing training and curriculum materials; providing access to its Oral History Lab’s recording and transcribing equipment; making referrals to potential narrators or partner organizations; acting as a repository for recordings, transcripts, photographs, documents, and artifacts, and more. WLM nurtures national partnership affiliations including the National Park Service, Smithsonian, and International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, and continues to build its national leadership within these entities. WLM collaborates with other local cultural partners to tell cross-sectional stories, like the Redlining Heritage Trail project in collaboration with Northwest African American Museum (“NAAM”) and others. WLM is a founding member of Seattle’s Race and Social Equity Task Force, which helped launch the City’s Equitable Development Initiative.

Youth and School Programming: Students and youth experience history first-hand through immersive stories of immigrants, refugees, and Americans of all generations, learning how they helped transform the state and region. WLM works across grade levels, from kindergarten through graduate-level students. From school partnerships to curriculum plans and training, to school tours and summer camps, WLM programs adopt state and national standards in English Language Arts and Social Studies and engage youth and schools to increase awareness, provide unique educational opportunities, and engage younger generations in AAPI stories, histories, and issues. The team works with regional and national partners to create and disseminate curriculum resources and train the next generation of arts and cultural leaders. Through YouthCAN, WLM’s nationally recognized, award-winning teen program for high schoolers, and TeensWay for middle schoolers, AAPI youth work with mentor artists to create artwork about issues important to them, learn about arts careers, and produce exhibitions of their work. Finally, WLM hosts Camp Bruce Lee in partnership with the Bruce Lee Foundation.

Cultural Anchor in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District: The Wing Luke Museum utilizes a “campus” approach to expanding and activating other AAPI cultural anchors throughout its neighborhood, linking to local AAPI businesses and cultural organizations as community resources and assets for all community members. The neighborhood is WLM’s largest exhibit, and the museum is committed to building community through creative placemaking and place-keeping, leveraging the power of authentically rooted arts, culture, and history to bring community, nonprofit, government, and businesses together to shape the future of the neighborhood.

The Wing Luke Museum is in the process of acquiring property one block south of the museum that will expand its footprint and further invest in the neighborhood, cultural preservation, and education. This opportunity also opens the potential to support neighborhood capacity for affordable housing and the development of a community gathering space.

As the pandemic has shaped the world’s collective experience since 2020, WLM has responded and adapted by quickly and successfully pivoting programming online, fostering a continued sense of community and connection and continuing to lift up the stories and experiences of the AAPI community and the pandemic’s impact. It has continued to serve as the heart of the Chinatown-International District community throughout these uncertain times and, in the past year, has been recognized by the Ford Foundation as one of America’s cultural treasures and received generous support from Philanthropists MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES FACING THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Vision and Leadership: The Future of Museums Beyond Brick and Mortar
As racial reawakening, arts and culture, social movements, and digital experiences converge, arts and cultural organizations are being asked to reimagine a world beyond their four walls and their role in broader social conversations. The new Executive Director will bring vision and a values-grounded approach to charting WLM’s future, staying true to its community-centered approach while strengthening its voice, programs, reach, and leadership. With a flexible and innovative approach, the Executive Director will envision and guide Wing Luke Museum’s presence and impact beyond its walls and partner with staff to explore how to creatively engage audiences in person and digitally and build community and strategic partnerships to advance the mission.

The Executive Director will be a community builder, creative placemaker and placekeeper, and leverage the power of authenticity rooted in arts, culture, and history to bring together community, nonprofit, government, and businesses to shape the future of the neighborhood.

They will continue to strengthen WLM’s local, regional, and national stature through strategic development of The Wing’s brand and digital presence, and through participation in activities that broaden its reach and connection.

Fundraising and New Revenue Models
The Executive Director will ensure a sustainable, long-term fundraising strategy, building on and strengthening WLM’s strong base of individual giving and philanthropic support. This includes building up reserves and nurturing the next generation of donors and supporters. The new ED will have the unique opportunity to lead WLM’s physical expansion with the acquisition and management of new properties and relationships, in addition to the potential to diversify revenue streams through development opportunities. S/he/they will ensure revenue diversification supports the long-term financial health of WLM and aligns with its mission and strategic plan.

Organizational Management and Leadership

The ED will ensure the financial health and effective business operations, including strengthening infrastructure (both technological and the physical space) to increase reach, engagement, and access by the community and patrons. S/he/they will build opportunities for strengthening staff capacity and investment to support WLM’s ambitious plans grounding in the value that the organization’s greatest resources are its people.

Board Engagement

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. A nonprofit grounded in five core values — open arms, creative exchanges, light bulb moments, pursuing excellence, and excitement — MoPOP is actively committed to ongoing learning in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA). 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.

Position Summary:
The Public Engagement Producer’s primary responsibilities are to plan and execute inspiring, creative public programs (both in-person and online) in support of MoPOP’s exhibitions and mission. Our programs serve the public, including diverse communities of fandoms, artists, creators, collaborators, and the pop culture curious.

Event posters and Support Local Music images are a key component in helping people return to and increase their support of our local artist and music community. Your art poster can spark interest and contribute to the visual connection to live music and how it helps us clear stress, connect with others and feel better.

We need your unique visuals to draw eyes (and hopefully ears!) to local bands and artists this season.

You can find more information about our array of concerts & multi-arts events @ www.FremontAbbey.org

Guidelines: We are open to whatever wild ideas and unusual visuals you can dream up, but if you are looking for a little inspiration, here are some prompts:
~ How does music make you feel better?
~ A visual that speaks to why you love music and then tie that into local music and the current need
~ How do you visualize creativity, beauty, or empathy?

Design Requirements:
11x17 format but will be used for digital, Instagram, etc. as well
Vertical / portrait orientation
PDF format, hi-res
Keep it PG (no offensive, disrespectful imagery please!) www.fremontabbey.org/respect

Award: If your concept idea is selected we will then work with you on the design. Designs will be used as part of our Support Local Music campaign and may be used to promote a specific show or the series. Chosen artists will receive a stipend for their work ($100-200) depending on design complexity, be tagged on socials, and be able to see their work on display around Seattle and possibly in ads!

We are excited to work with new artists and see your awesome designs! If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch by emailing booking@fremontabbey.org
