Director of Programs (REMOTE)

    BACKGROUND

    The Foundation for Art & Healing (FAH) develops innovative programs harnessing
    the power of creativity and the arts to address today’s most urgent emotional and
    physical health challenges. Our signature initiative Project UnLonely has received
    national recognition with its UnLonely Film Festival, Successful Aging Creativity
    Circles, and Colors & Connection workshops, delivered both directly and in
    partnership with campuses, workplaces, and community-based organizations.
    We’re all about programs that inspire. Purposefully built for sharing, FAH
    programs invite a range of diverse perspectives fostering empathic learning. Our
    programs are impact-driven, field-tested, and science-backed. Blending
    engagement with both heart and mind, they create the unique magic of authentic
    connection, health, and wellbeing.

    Our Director of Programs will be a member of the senior management team and
    take a lead role in developing new programs as well as shepherding our existing
    portfolio. If you have the experience and special talent to make programs best-in-
    class working hand-in-hand with both internal and external experts, we’d love to
    have you consider joining the FAH team.

    Here’s a little more detail on what you’ll bring:

    ● Experience, and lots of it. You’ve been around the block managing and
    improving programs preferably arts-based or public health-oriented. (8-10
    years)
    ● Very strong project management skills. You notice every detail and are a
    whiz at making a plan to get things done. Then, you actually get things
    done.
    ● You understand the importance of measurement and have experience and familiarity with monitoring and evaluation, research methods and survey tools.
    ● You’re quality obsessed. You understand how to ensure program quality
    integrating the latest research, user-experience in design, and practicalities
    of implementation.
    ● You love to collaborate. You seek out and bring the best thinking to your
    team’s work.
    ● Problem-solving is your thing. You quickly see problems and get energized
    to find solutions. Whether in program design or in program delivery, you
    have that can-do attitude.
    ● You do relationship management by listening, understanding others’ needs
    and expectations, and setting shared goals.
    ● You understand funding is important and eagerly support all income
    generating activities. It would be a plus if you have a track record of
    working with funders, contributing to grant proposals, and meeting
    reporting requirements.
    ● You’re a clear communicator with strong written and verbal skills.
    ● Added plus: You have a graduate level degree in a relevant field such as
    public health, community health, expressive therapies, museum and/or arts
    education.
