Senior Manager of Development
Dance/NYC is looking for a full-time Senior Manager of Development to strategically manage and sustain the execution of its development initiatives and priorities. Unite your passion for arts and service with your fundraising management expertise.
PLEASE SUPPORT - People’s Space and Performance Space are now helping the AIRs raise funds to collectively purchase a home outside of NYC,
During the month of June, in the midst of the BLM protests in New York, Angel, Danyele, Donte, Rj, and Stev – the Artists in Residents (AIRs)—were invited by People’s Space — a group of artists from our 02020 initiative—to work with Performance Space New York. What started as a project to offer refuge for protesters quickly shifted to a mutual aid space for those facing houselessness. After securing temporary housing for the AIRs, it soon became apparent that the five artists needed a more permanent solution.
People’s Space and Performance Space are now helping the AIRs raise funds to collectively purchase a home outside of NYC, and to provide seed funding for their artistic careers. With your support, the AIRs will be able to secure both long-term housing for themselves and eventually other houseless, Black and trans artists.
Help us raise $60,000 by October 15 to lift up impacted communities and most of all, help keep them safe, sustained and supported!
The donation will not go to Performance Space; 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the AIRs.

Artist Talk with Amanda L. Edwards and Nyugen Smith
On Zoom, Friday, October 23 at 6:00 PM ETJoin us for an artist talk with Amanda L. Edwards and Nyugen Smith!
Smith and Edwards have collaborating on a video piece over the past few months — debuting on the side of Maxon Mills in early December — as one of three artist teams sponsored by an NEA Art Works grant for community-engaged public art projects. The talk will cover how their collaborative process has developed since their residencies in July 2018, how they’ve adapted their practices for large-scale projection work, and will maybe (maybe!) include a sneak preview of the piece itself. There'll be plenty of time for audience questions, too.

Cultivating Arts Leaders of Color
The 2021 WOCA Leadership through Mentorship Program
About The WOCA Leadership Through Mentorship Program
This year the Women of Color in the Arts (WOCA) Leadership Through Mentorship Program (LTM) initiative celebrates its sixth anniversary! The LTM program pairs emerging and mid-level administrators with more seasoned leaders with the explicit purpose of cultivating long-term professional investment and self-sustainability for women of color in the performing arts field. A first of its kind, it is significant to note that this program is designed for women of color, by women of color. This leadership training program is exclusively aimed at cultivating self-identified arts leaders* of color, addressing their specific needs as often marginalized people in the field.
