ISSUE Project Room seeks an Operations Associate to play a key role in furthering our mission to foster experimental projects by artists working across disciplines of sound, dance, film, performance, and literature. The Associate will assist the Executive Director & Chief Curator (ED/CC) in managing administrative, finance and operational matters and support the administration for ISSUE programs. The Associate will be a key member of ISSUE’s small, collaborative team, reporting directly to ED/CC. During the first month of employment the Associate will also work with outgoing Operations staff to receive training with existing systems.
A pioneering performance nonprofit founded in 2003, ISSUE Project Room presents projects by interdisciplinary artists that expand the boundaries of artistic practice and stimulate critical dialogue in the broader community. ISSUE plays a vital role in NYC’s cultural ecology, facilitating the commission and premiere of new works and presenting a diverse array of artists working across sound, dance, film, performance and literature. Programming aims to bring recognition to artists whose important contributions fall beyond infrastructural boundaries of discipline or genre, elude audience expectations, or are otherwise underrepresented as a result of bias within the fields of art and performance, and broader histories of social and economic participation. Through the cultivation of innovative new work, ISSUE performs an essential research and development function that fosters a dynamic influx of ideas into the local, national, and international creative landscape.
