New Music USA seeks a proactive and organized program coordinator with expertise in arts administration to help facilitate the Baltimore edition of its New Music Inc. program, which will launch this spring.
New Music Inc. is an incubator program which helps small-budget, artist-led new music organizations to generate new ideas, strategies and collaborations at pivotal stages in the group or collective’s development. The program provides each participating organization with financial support coupled with 12 months of hands-on skill building in a cohort environment intended to foster collective learning and long- term collaboration. It is open to organizations working in any music style and will consist of 50% BIPOC-led organizations to reflect the diversity of creators and artists who are contributing to Baltimore’s music community.
The program coordinator will help with the recruitment of New Music Inc participants in Baltimore identified via an open call and collaboration with local community leaders. The program coordinator will also be the main point person and advisor to New Music Inc participants; designing and facilitating 6 cohort learning sessions to help participants meet their goals, securing and managing peer advisors for the cohort, and assisting in the evaluation of program outcomes.
A successful candidate will be based in Baltimore, have experience in a leadership role in an arts or music organization, have strong project management and communications skills, and be proactive and self-organized. Experience in training or capacity building programs for arts organizations - as participant, leader, mentor or coach - is a plus.
New Music USA is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the varied music community it serves. All applicants will be considered for employment without regard to race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or age. We envision a thriving and equitable ecosystem for new music across the United States. We believe that music can be a change agent for a more just and balanced world.
