Engagement and Experience Manager
Southern Vermont Arts Center
Do you believe art museums should be places of quiet reflection and introspection, and that interpretation should promote the most advanced scholarship in the museum field?
If so, please skip our ad.
However, if you think that art could be fun, challenging, inspirational, and powerful if only art museums took a page out of the playbook of zoos, children’s museums, or amusement parks: you might be for us.
If you find the challenge of making a traditional art center a place that’s alive, vibrant, and active through its exhibitions and programming: you might be for us.
If you can work with contemporary artists, gallerists, and peer museums to find or create new and innovative exhibitions: you might be for us.
If you can develop digital scavenger hunts, selfie stations, low-tech and high-tech games, and visitor-inspired content: you might be for us.
If you can do all of these things and manage the associated budgets, contracts, negotiations, and volunteers/staff required to implement them: you might be for us.
Southern Vermont Arts Center seeks an Engagement and Experience Manager who is bold, creative, adventurous, and entrepreneurial to help us change the game. Show us what you’ve got! For full description, please visit: www.svac.org/opportunities.
To apply, please send a letter of interest, resume, salary requirements, and relevant project samples to: Anne Corso, Executive Director, Southern Vermont Arts Center, P.O. Box 617, Manchester, VT 05254, email@example.com.
