MANIFEST CREATIVE RESEARCH GALLERY AND DRAWING CENTER is seeking a skillful, organized, and energetic person to fill the key part-time position of MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR.
The ideal candidate for this key position will play an important role in the promotion and expansion of this internationally recognized and locally vital twelve year old non-profit arts organization.
The Marketing and Communications Coordinator will work directly with the Executive Director and Operations Manager to maintain Manifest’s full spectrum of social media, email campaigns, electronic communications and publication marketing efforts to broaden awareness of, and involvement in, all program areas of the organization. The position will work directly with various program lead staff, including the Exhibition Coordinator and Drawing Center Coordinator, in crafting elegant systems for ongoing, clear, and engaging public communications that suit Manifest’s vision and identity.
It is essential that the Coordinator is also able to work independently, creatively devising verbiage and materials utilizing a writing style which echoes the organization’s philosophy, mission, and identity. The schedule for this position is somewhat flexible but must be consistent. The Coordinator must also understand that due to the nature of tasks and activities involved, the work schedule of the position will need to adapt to fit occasional special events and planning meetings, serving the specific needs of the role and the wider needs of the organization.
The Marketing and Communications Coordinator must understand and support the mission of Manifest, and should have a deep interest in, commitment to, and familiarity with visual arts, especially in terms of bridging the unique and sometimes complex philosophy of Manifest with the general public, and differentiating the organization’s mission and programs from those of other arts organizations. It is preferred that applicants hold a degree in English, Journalism, Marketing or Communications, and/or possess significant experience relating to this position. A degree in fine art, design, or art history with complimentary marketing/communications experience may also be suitable. Some familiarity with non-profit or practical business operations would be beneficial.
This position offers the opportunity to further establish and build upon the organization’s overall image, and to broaden public impact and involvement. The position offers the chance to be a key part of the vibrant energy at Manifest by interacting with and greatly expanding Manifest’s existing culture of shared creative learning made up of established, emerging, aspiring, and developing artists and academics on the regional and international level. The opportunity to vastly increase the efficiency and distribution of the award-winning Manifest Press publications is a unique aspect of the position.
As Manifest grows there is considerable opportunity for advancement.
