 Oversee the production of Women Eco Artists Dialog online Magazine including Author Communications, Article Management, Article Publishing on Wordpress, Programming, and Publicity.

WEAD is looking for a detail oriented, organized, reliable WordPress savvy person who is passionate about the cultural impact of ecoart and social justice art. See list of specific tasks at bottom of this description. Writing skills, editing skills, good communication skills, as well as ability to post on WordPress Website and manage documents and spreadsheets in Google Docs are a must. Ability to create Mailchimp emailings and facebook and instagram posts also desired.

The current issue of the magazine, "The Politics of Empathy", has already accepted proposals and will go online in October. This position is a unique opportunity to work on the magazine under the direction of the Founder of WEAD and a Professor of Art History & Global Cultures.

The "call" invited submissions from artists, critics, art historians, feminist thinkers, and relevant writers to address a range of issues from multi-species empathy to climate-change apathy.  

Essays were sought revealing the strategies of artists who employ the empathetic approach to all living things, inclusive of humans and non-humans, sharing affinity with communities of living organisms.   On the other end of the spectrum, we also wanted to learn about artists who have challenged, resisted, and exposed the apathy of non-action and environmental destruction.

The aim of this special issue is to expand our comprehension, and emphasize the critical need for Politics of Empathy in view of the precariousness of all life in this climate generation.
