The TANK Center for Sonic Arts seeks a half-time Executive Director.

Friends of The TANK is a young 501(c)(3), created to preserve and share The TANK, a 65’ tall, 40’ wide historic railroad water tank with extraordinary, senses-altering acoustic qualities in Northwest Colorado. We seek a half-time Executive Director to gather our many existing resources and broad local support to guide The TANK Center for Sonic Arts from a three-year-old, all-volunteer effort into a sustainable international arts center.

As an experienced organizer and fundraiser, you will work with our Board to develop initial programs to make The TANK available to the public, while developing long-term strategic plans and funding to establish The TANK Center for Sonic Arts as a hub of international/local collaboration and sonic experiences. Over time, The TANK Center for Sonic Arts will become a venue for musicians, sound and interdisciplinary artists, sonic thinkers, and other artists and educators from around the world to record, perform, and explore.

Be the leader of the team that will realize our five-year vision of programs, performances, residencies, workshops, projects, and sufficient funding for a full-time Executive Director and other staff. We encourage Colorado-based applicants, with special consideration given to those on the Western Slope, near The TANK in Rangely, Colorado.  (www.tanksounds.org)
