The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC) seeks a part-time Arts Presentation Manager, reporting to the Curator of Performing Arts.
WHO WE ARE
The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is a multi-disciplinary contemporary arts center, financially stable and professionally managed, which is dedicated to the presentation, production, and promotion of the art of our time. It expresses its mission by organizing world class curated exhibitions; through a multi-disciplinary schedule of live performances and public programs; and by educating and enlarging audiences for the arts while encouraging collaboration among diverse stakeholders composed of artists, institutions, communities, and supporters throughout the world.
The CAC was formed in the fall of 1976 as a non-collecting organization by a passionate group of artists when the prescient movement to tear down the aesthetic barriers between the performing and visual arts was active nationwide. Housed in a four-story, 80,000 square foot building with two adjacent 10,000 square foot warehouses the CAC boasts among its many physical assets a 210 seat flexible theater as well as 11,000 square feet of exhibition spaces.
Performing Arts Department
A live art program that includes but is not limited to theater, dance and music, the performing arts department supports the CAC visual arts programming with innovative presentations that express theatrical elements relating to visual art curation and encourages national and international recognition of local artists presented at CAC. In addition, the performing arts department creates and executes lectures, events, and post-show artist discussions that represent the aesthetic and vision of the CAC.
While the CAC aims to execute extraordinary presentations of all live touring work, it also strives to cultivate and support local artists with the intention of spring-boarding them to regional, national and international levels through mentorship, programming opportunities, and financial development. Please note: artists/ensembles working in non-traditional narrative, devised, ‘ground up’ creation, street art will be priority for CAC performing arts programming. The CAC encourages and supports creativity in its staff. Continued »
