Greene County Council on the Arts has an opening for its Executive Director with an anticipated start date of June 1, 2018.
Greene County Council on the Arts (GCCA), founded in 1975, is a 501(c)(3) organization. It provides, supports and promotes arts access, advocacy and education for all residents of and visitors to Greene, Columbia, and Schoharie counties. The Hudson Valley arts environment is vibrant and growing rapidly and GCCA is positioned to be a leader in supporting the growth and awareness of the arts in the three counties. The organization is evolving as the communities evolve; GCCA’s intention is to be the major driver of the arts in the vital Hudson Valley.
GCCA provides information and services to artists, arts organizations, cultural and educational institutions, civic groups, community agencies and the general public. Acting as a chamber of commerce for the arts and a clearinghouse for the promotion of arts activities, we aim to stimulate the area’s cultural and economic growth through the arts.
We mount gallery exhibitions all year round, provide six weeks of free summer arts workshops for children ages 3-7, offer Regrant Funds for community and cultural arts, arts in education and individual artists in partnership with NYSCA and the Greene County Legislature, and produce a bi-monthly newsletter, Arts Alive, with feature articles, grant opportunities, resources for artists and a calendar of events.
GCCA Executive Director Role:
GCCA is seeking an executive director to lead us into the next chapter of the organization, a visionary with the ability to capture the attention and encourage participation by the newcomers flocking to our area as well as honoring and continuing to appreciate the faithful supporters of GCCA and our history in the Hudson Valley.
