Lambent Foundation is recruiting

Lambent Foundation was established in 2008 as one of the first national funders in the US dedicated to supporting arts and culture as a strategy for social change. It supports contemporary cultural organizations and projects in a range of disciplines, nurturing some of the most promising artists and artist-driven organizations working at the intersection of art and social justice.

Seeking to increase its capacity, the Foundation is currently recruiting the following three leaders:

  • Deputy Director  – responsible for managing Lambent’s operations and programs, ensuring that all programs are intentionally-focused and mission-aligned, and that the integrity of the Foundation’s work is well-maintained.  The Deputy will provide the leadership, strategy and direction necessary to increase Lambent’s capacity to engage and serve its diverse slate of grantees, and will serve as a thought leader and advocate for Lambent’s principles both within and outside of the organization.
  • Director of Communications – responsible for overseeing a robust communications framework and executing strategies that elevate Lambent as a respected voice for contemporary arts at the intersection of social justice. The Director should be a strong storyteller, with the ability to effectively translate concepts and ideas to diverse audiences – local to global.
  • Partner Network Manager – responsible for managing Lambent’s Grantee Partner Network, connecting the grantee partners to each other, coalescing a highly-functional collective that embraces and operates from a set of core values, to the end of being more impactful and sustainable.
