The Executive Director Search

We seek a proven and respected leader with a passion for, and keen understanding of, the value of arts in education and arts in the lives of young people. With responsibility for all aspects of the organization, this new leader will maintain excellence and continue the momentum built by our previous executive director. The ideal candidate will embrace diversity and promote an environment of sensitivity and creativity with the students, artists, donors, board, staff, and community partners. This is a critical hire that will impact the lives of thousands of young people, artists, teachers and cultural groups in the Western New York community.
