Guys and gals, I did it!

I was offered and accepted a job.

I will be the general manager for the Center for Performance Research, which is a 3-year old dance and performance space that includes a rehearsal studio and white-box theater. It’s located in Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

Starting Monday, I will be 4 days a week with a flexible schedule for about 6 months while I/we raise money to bring the position to full-time. We had a great meeting today, and are going to start laying out a plan for what the full-time position will look like in the coming months. There is both paid and unpaid time off as part of the job right now.

There will hopefully be health insurance, retirement, and paid time off as part of the full-time package. And maybe, if I do really well, a title bump?

But really, the best thing about this job is that it involves working with emerging artists, producing and presenting dance and experimental theater, and building a strong, healthy, mission-driven organization basically from the get-go. It’s such a massive opportunity. It’s basically the opposite of the job I quit ten months ago, and I think it is absolutely the right thing for me to be doing.

So, yay. This is a cause for celebration.

Also, of course I will keep writing this blog! Lots more positive lessons about arts administration and non-profit management, no more temping.
