Posted: November 25, 2019 at 2:19 pm

Description of the position:

The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture (USDAC) seeks a collaborative, visionary, experienced, movement-oriented leader to steward and evolve the people-powered department at a moment of significant transformation and opportunity.

The person in this role will join a collaborative effort to evolve strategy and vision, grow capacity, and transition the USDAC into its next chapter. They will contribute to “holding the whole” — developing and coordinating programs and partnerships, deepening organizing strategy, and creating the conditions through which a growing team can support and activate the USDAC’s network of 22,000+  artists, cultural organizers, educators, policy-makers, arts administrators, activists, and allies.

We are looking for someone with significant leadership experience in both organizational development and social justice organizing. Background in arts or cultural work is not a requirement for this role.  A successful candidate must have an appreciation for and understanding of the power of cultural work and creativity. Experience in community cultural development, the intersection of arts and social justice, and/or cultural organizing is, of course, also a plus!


This is a work-remote position and is not full-time.

Initial contract would be for a rate of $39,000-$46,800/year, depending on agreed upon scope of work. This is not a full-time position. USDAC team members are all independent contractors, compensated at an equal rate and working flexible schedules that allow for other projects/clients.

The deadline to apply is midnight on December 9th, and the position begins March 2020!
