Job Overview

Washington Revels’ next Executive Director (ED) will lead staff, volunteers, and other members of our community in our mission to connect people of all generations and backgrounds, celebrating our diverse cultural traditions and shared humanity through educational and participatory performing arts.

The ED, in partnership with the board and artistic staff, will be responsible for leading and energizing our volunteer-heavy organization with a strong sense of community through committed, active participation that transcends the typical 9-to-5 work schedule.

The ED reports to the Board of Directors and manages a small team of full and part-time employees, as well as independent contractors and volunteers. In consultation with the artistic leaders, the ED is responsible for overseeing administration and programs of Washington Revels as well as the implementation of its strategic plan. Other key areas of authority and accountability include budgeting and financial management, fundraising, marketing, human resource management, partnerships, and community engagement.
