Working at A.R.T./New York 

Who We Are + What We Do

Founded in 1972, A.R.T./New York assists over 400 member theatres in managing their theatre companies effectively so they may realize their rich artistic visions and serve their diverse audiences well. Over nearly five decades, A.R.T./New York has earned a reputation as a leader in providing progressive services to our members—from shared office and rehearsal spaces to technical assistance programs for emerging theatres—which have made the organization an expert in the needs of the New York City nonprofit theatre community. A.R.T./New York’s 400 member companies are the heart of what we do, and we provide them with four core areas of support, listed below along with some key examples:

Our Values 

How We Work

A.R.T./New York is currently undergoing a period of exciting transformation as we collectively create a new structure and collaborative work environment through a process that we hope can be a model for the field. We are beginning to build a workplace that values collective intelligence, and as a result have started to form more interdisciplinary teams that work across departments. As our work evolves, we are utilizing a number of tools to ideate and standardize our processes including: 

  • Box - because it’s important to keep files organized

  • Airtable - a multi-use database that can function as a spreadsheet, calendar, and visual sharing tool

  • Miro - useful for brainstorming, ideating, and presenting ideas in a visual format

As we continue to navigate a call for racial justice and equity within our organization, we have made a long-term commitment to become a more equitable and anti-racist space. Through the formation of Ethics and Accountability Committees at the Staff and Board levels, A.R.T./New York is currently examining our internal practices through the lens of our newly updated Values so that we may begin the process of innovating and rebuilding our organization. This process will be multi-faceted and never-ending, but it will include, among other things a full audit of A.R.T./New York’s current internal and external practices, including: 

  • Internal work culture

  • Staffing structures

  • Member-facing program offerings.  

Staff members rotate duties chairing and facilitating committee meetings as we work to foster an environment of collective intelligence. We are looking forward to learning alongside each other as well as outside stakeholders, including our membership, and have pledged to be transparent as our progress continues.

Who You Are

We are looking for collaborators whose experience will add to our organizational culture, rather than just fit into it. We welcome authentic personalities of any kind. Ideally, you enjoy creative abrasion and rumbling with new ideas; you are excited to be of service to New York’s nonprofit theatrical community; and you are energized by the prospect of taking part in a highly transformative period in an organization’s evolution. 

At A.R.T./New York, we strongly encourage individuals from historically underrepresented communities including people of color, trans/NB/GNC, women, and disabled people to apply for our openings. A.R.T./New York strives to create a supportive work environment staffed by people who love the theatre, have a desire to support the field, and are committed to a just and diverse community in all its forms. A.R.T./New York is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, military status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
