Executive Co-Direcor

Founded in 1972, A.R.T./New York assists over 400 member theatres in managing their theatre companies effectively so they may realize their rich artistic visions and serve their diverse audiences well. Over nearly five decades, A.R.T./New York has earned a reputation as a leader in providing progressive services to our members—from shared office and rehearsal spaces to technical assistance programs for emerging theatres—which have made the organization an expert in the needs of the New York City nonprofit theatre community. A.R.T./New York’s 400 member companies are the heart of what we do, and we provide them with four core areas of support, funding, training, space and connections.


A.R.T./New York seeks experienced candidates to fill the role of Co-Director on a new Executive Leadership Team. Aligned with our values, the two-director team will jointly oversee an annual budget of approximately $7,000,000, a full-time staff of 19 and a part-time staff of 31 delivering a growing slate of services to New York’s nonprofit theatre sector. Specific responsibilities and areas of focus will vary based on the skills and interests of each director, as discussed with board and staff during the interview process and finalized in collaboration between Co-Directors upon hiring.  We are not looking for a unicorn who can be everything at once. We are looking for a leader excited to collaboratively originate a shared leadership model in which two partners’ complementary skills and passions contribute to achieving shared goals.

In our shared leadership model, two Co-Directors will partner in the responsibility of leading ART/New York.  We expect the Co-Directors to take the first year of their collaboration to determine the distribution of responsibilities and find an appropriate balance between supporting one another and leading together and independently.
