The Center at West Park’s Arts Leaders Fellowship Program is an opportunity for early career arts professionals to build skills and experience while shaping the direction of a new arts and culture center in a historic building on the Upper West Side. 

Fellows will work closely with the Center’s Executive & Artistic Director to plan and execute projects to build both organization capacity and their individual skill sets, as well as regular tasks to support the weekly operations of the Center. Fellows will meet weekly on Monday evenings to share goals and accomplishments, collaborate on solutions, and discuss organizational strategy. Each fellow will also be assigned a mentor from the Board of Directors or senior staff. 

All fellows will have two unique opportunities: 1) working with the Executive & Artistic Director and Board Programming Committee to curate the Center’s upcoming season, and 2) sitting in on monthly board meetings (also on Monday evenings) and delivering reports on their projects to the board. 

Fellows will also have the opportunity to sign up for House Manager shifts during performances on weeknights and weekends, 3-5 hours per shift, $15 per hour. 

Some experience in arts administration, producing, and/or curation is preferred. A passion for music, dance, theater, film, and/or visual art is a must. 

The Center at West Park is building a welcoming and inclusive community that spans diverse points of view; cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds; national origins and immigration statuses; ages, abilities, orientations, and gender identities; and religious and spiritual affiliations (or none at all). We call the diverse members of our community into relationship through our shared commitment to creative and intellectual expression. Persons of all backgrounds, identities, and abilities are encouraged to apply.
