Managing Director Fellow will receive a monthly stipend of $2,500 (total of $25,000) and a public transportation pass.

Opportunities include:

  • Participating in season planning, specific to overall budget
  • Weekly one-on-one seminar with the Managing Director
  • Weekly one-on-one seminar with the Associate Artistic Director on leadership development
  • Participating as an integral member of the administration team
  • Enhancing fundamental skills to nonprofit arts administration
  • Learning about nonprofit governance and working closely with the Board of Directors
