Are you passionate about engaging youth and communities in the creation of public art? Do you have the time and skills to dedicate to helping a nonprofit achieve its mission? If so, we hope you’ll apply to join the Urban ArtWorks Board of Directors.

We are currently looking for new members of our hard-working, snacks-loving board. Our ideal candidates are positive, detail-oriented, innovative, and passionate to make a difference through volunteerism. Experience working in the arts, social justice, nonprofits, education, or youth programming a plus but not required. If you think you’d make a good candidate, we would love to hear from you. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and communities to apply.

Responsibilities include:

  • Advise, govern, oversee the direction, promote growth, ensure financial health, and assist with the leadership and general promotion of Urban ArtWorks
  • Meet via Zoom (4th Wednesday of every month, 6:00-8:30PM); and as needed for special meetings
  • Actively participate in Urban ArtWorks committees, communications, fundraising efforts, and events
  • Commit to our 2-year board term

All candidates must be available to meet via Zoom on the fourth Wednesday of every month (6:00-8:30PM) to be considered for this position. We will resume our in-person meetings at the Urban ArtWorks studio in the International District once public health officials remove social distancing requirements.

For more information on our application process, please email Natalie Gualy (nataliegualy@gmail.com) by August 15, 2020. Thank you for your interest!
