ATTN Digital Photographers: call for entries to juried exhibition [May. 13th, 2007|08:12 pm]

Howdy, kiddies!  This is the project I have been putting my heart into for the last several months: designing and implementing a digital photo juried exhibition that is great for the gallery and fantastic for the artists.  What started as a project for the "Arts in Community Service" course became a reality.  Please pass this info on to your photographer friends. 621 Gallery is a non-profit organization and relies heavily on word of mouth (or e-mail as the case may be).  Broadcasting to the masses would be greatly appreciated too!

Many thanks!
Ansley

Call to Artists: Hands Off! digital photo juried exhibition at 621 Gallery

Hands Off! is an international digital photography exhibition showing a new phenomenon in art: the ability for the artist to create a finished piece without ever touching the artwork. This juried exhibition gives the opportunity for emerging and well-known artists to show in an established venue possibly across the county or world without the normal astronomical fees involved (printing, framing, crating, shipping, as well as return shipping). If accepted, the artist sends in a digital file that the gallery prints at 8x10 inches and frames at 11x14 inches.  During the month long exhibition, over $1000 in cash and prizes will be awarded.  This includes the Best of Show, awarded by image-maker and juror Robert Fichter, of $150 and the winning framed print as well as product prizes.  All entry money from the exhibition will go to 621 Gallery, Inc, a not-for-profit organization, to help bring contemporary and progressive art to Tallahassee, Florida.  For more information and to apply, please visit http://www.621gallery.com/handsoff/

Does anyone here know of any scholarships, grants, fellowships, etc. that are geared specifically towards people who want to study Arts Administration/Management? My research is coming up pretty empty...

EDIT: This would specifically be for current high school students, looking to study at an undergraduate level. Unfortunately, not a lot of undergrad programs exist. So maybe I'd be better off looking at specific schools.

My boss is constantly asking me to give out our mailing list to other organizations and companies, in order to get discounts on things, other mailing lists, etc. Moreover, I've heard my co-workers assure people that we never give out our list. I have a problem with this. How do you all feel about it? Should I say something to my boss?

For what it's worth I recently quit this job, so I won't be here much longer. Thank god...

I know this is Arts Administration but I'm hoping that maybe someone out there has some contacts in other Non Profits.

A friend of mine is applying for a job at the Liberty Science Center (in New Jersey) as a Science Educator. He has an extensive background as an teacher, he also DJs and even had his own TV (cable access) TV show. He can do a great job making science fun and accessible to people from all sorts of backgrounds.

He definitely has both the knowledge and personality to do this job well. He would be **great** at this job!

Is there anyone out there reading this who knows someone, who either works there or has some other connection the facility who would be willing to give him a name of someone to talk to or possibly even walk his resume directly to HR.

If so, please email me or you leave a comment for me here. Thanks!

Protocol? [Jul. 26th, 2006|03:28 pm]

Hi all... I was wondering if anyone could lend me some advice on this. I've been working as Office Manager for a small nonprofit (only 3 of us full-timers on staff) for about 9 months now. Up until recently I've had little or no interaction with our Board members, and suddenly in the past month I keep getting emails from them asking me to submit reports, asking the status of my projects, etc. All for things up until now they've had no input on.

My E.D. is none too helpful and just says "Give them what they want." And she isn't shedding any light on why they're all up in my business as of late. I've never worked for an org. this small, so maybe I'm just not used to this type of Board, but do you all think this sounds like typical protocol? A friend of mine joked that when this happened at her last job, the E.D. ended up getting fired. Could that be what's going on? I hate not having any type of HR Dept. or anyone I can go to with concerns. Meh. What do you all think?

hi everyone, I'm brand new here. I have a question for you all and I'm wondering if you guys can help me out.

I'm a high school student and in the past year or so I've gotten really interested in arts administration. I am a very, very serious dancer but I don't necessarily want to make dance my career in the future - I figure arts administration is a great way to involve myself in the arts and have a "real job" at the same time. My dance company director is an arts administrator for the Connecticut Ballet and used to be one for the New York City Ballet, so I am aspiring to working for something like that.

I would like to know of some colleges in the New York area with good Arts Administration programs - I'm trying to prepare myself well now (I have an internship at a local theatre lined up this summer, I involve myself in directing my dance company, muscicals, etc) but I would love to hear some more advice.

Thank you so much in advance!

Jackie

I'm thinking about doing a research project for my school this summer and I'm wondering if anyone can help me with some preliminary research. I got to thinking about the role of consumerism in nonprofits. This idea started b/c I work for a nonprofit arts organization that is participating in an event this spring called "Community Shopping Day" in conjunction with Macy's.

The idea is they give us tickets to sell for $10 apiece for the event, which allows the purchaser to recieve a discount on their purchases at Macy's on this day. We get all the ticket sale revenue and at the end of the day, the organizations involved get a cut of the proceeds as well. While this is a relatively easy money-maker for us, something about the idea of blatantly promoting consumerism doesn't sit right with me. Some other examples are the fact that an education program I used to run has been re-named "The Exxon-Mobile student matinee series", or how Pepsi will give schools money to endorse their sugar and caffiene filled products.

I feel really conflicted about this. On the one hand, how can you turn down the money when you're struggling to make ends meet and provide a service? But on the other hand, what kinds of messages are you promoting? Are you compromising your integrity?

So anyway, I'm trying to find some research devoted to this topic, and also get some opinions from other people, especially those who work in the nonprofit sector. Thanks for any help!
