Posted:
May 6, 2021
Background
The mission of The Children’s of Cincinnati (TCT) is to educate, entertain and engage audiences of all ages through professional theatrical productions and arts education programming. Now in its 101st season, TCT is the oldest professional theatre for young audiences in the country and is recognized as one of the top children’s theatres in the nation. TCT brings art to life through three divisions: TCT MainStage at the Taft Theatre, TCT on Tour/WorkShops, and TCT Academy.

Arts organizations have the power to heal, uplift, and create lasting cultural change. The Change Fund at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati was launched in October 2020 due to the generous funding of KeyBank Foundation.   The Change Fund aims to create an inclusive culture and innovation through the addition of previously excluded voices. The generous donation from KeyBank Foundation provides exclusive funding for The Change Fund to implement projects dedicated to eight pillar areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access. TCT has currently identified these pillars as:

- Internships for Diverse Arts Administrators  
- Diverse Educators, Guest Speakers, Ambassadors, & Cultural Consultants
- Development of diversity-focused new works and adaptations
- Diverse Playwrights & Composers
- Diverse Directors & Choreographers 
- Diverse Designers & Artists 
- Diverse Production Crew
- Diversity-Focused Community Engagement Initiatives
 
The Change Fund seeks to offer opportunities for diverse individuals throughout the country including those of various races, ethnicities, religions, genders, abilities, socio-economic status, and more.

How It Works
The Change Fund at TCT will provide professional and educational opportunities for diverse people interested in pursuing a career in nonprofit/arts management through its internships for arts administrators. Internships will amplify the voices of individuals who have been historically underrepresented. The Change Fund will be an educational resource dedicated to projects that specifically and intentionally propel the perspectives of people who are of varying race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and more, for many years to come. 

Interested participants may apply for internships related to their professional goals in non-profit arts management. Applicants may be aspiring non-profit marketing directors, CEOs, producers, development leaders, venue managers, and beyond. Interns will lead various programming efforts, share in mentorship by TCT leaders, partake in professional development, engage in networking opportunities with other arts and business leaders in the community, and will be provided with valuable educational opportunities pertaining to arts administration. Interns will also offer fresh expertise and perspective to TCT’s operations and programming departments.

Interns will be provided a stipend of $500 per week as well as a housing allowance if from outside of the Greater Cincinnati region.

About the National Book Foundation
The National Book Foundation is building a nation of readers. We believe books have a unique capacity to help people learn, grow, and engage critically with the complex world around us. Our goal is to make literary culture welcoming and accessible to everyone.

The National Book Foundation emerged out of and continues to present the National Book Awards, one of America’s most prestigious literary prizes with a record of helping to shape and expand our literary canon. For readers and writers alike, the Awards are a major annual event that focuses national attention on books of the highest quality and relevance. While the Awards remain central to our work, they are embedded in a rich mix of programs that collectively encourage all people to participate in a radical and transformative act: reading. The Foundation believes that reading help us recognize the humanity of others and meaningfully address the defining issues of our times. What books embody – nuance, empathy, deep reflection and analysis, storytelling that gives meaning to our varied lives – are precisely the values we want to elevate.

The Murphy Theatre, located in the town of Wilmington in Southwestern Ohio, is searching for an Executive Director to oversee management and operations of the 103-year-old historic theater. 

The person selected for this visible and critical role will be well-versed in all aspects of theater management and will serve as the key leader to a strong staff as well as an active and supportive board. The Executive Director will help guide The Murphy Theater into an exciting renewal after a year of pandemic restrictions as well as position the theater for continued success and an expanded reach in the years to come.

The Murphy Theatre
In 1918, Charles Webb Murphy, owner of the Chicago Cubs, opened the theater as a gift to his hometown of Wilmington, Ohio.  The Murphy, as it is affectionately called  by locals, was the heart of downtown in those early days playing host to vaudeville, lectures, minstrel shows, movies, high school graduations, band concerts, plays and even church services.

In 1929, the Murphy family leased the theater to a movie theater chain and The Murphy was operated primarily as a movie house until the 1970’s when the theater was purchased by the community in an effort to preserve the historic grandeur of the building.  Since that time, the Board of Trustees, staff, volunteers, and supporters of this non-profit organization have worked to restore the historic building to its original splendor.  Our mission is to preserve the Historic Murphy Theatre as a place to Inspire, Enrich and Entertain our community.

Today, the theatre remains a true community center providing a venue for touring performers, local productions, school events, performing arts education, business meetings, and weddings. The Murphy Theatre’s vision is to continue to be a source of community pride, an example of perseverance, and an entertainment and cultural center sought by artists and audiences from the Southwest Ohio region and beyond.  

Executive Director Position Summary
The Murphy Theatre is seeking a vibrant, talented professional to lead the people and operations of the theater with the vision to elevate The Murphy to a regional venue and destination for a variety of artists and audiences alike. 

The Executive Director will implement The Murphy Theatre’s mission under the direction of the Board of Trustees.  The Executive Director is responsible for all theater operations, staff and volunteer management, and programming.  Other key responsibilities include the management of development, marketing, and community outreach.  This is a full-time, year-round position and will require some evening and weekend work. 

The Successful Candidate will…
- Possess a bachelor’s degree in theater management, arts administration, non-profit management, or related field and/or a minimum of three years of relevant performing arts/non-profit management or related management and operations experience.

Contemporary Arts Center

Eco Conscious Summer Artmaking Workshop

Posted:
Apr 6, 2021

This workshop seeks to combine the worlds of art and science with a focus on the natural and anthropocene environment of the Queen City. 

10 selected local artists will have an opportunity to learn from Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and the Contemporary Arts Center, two sustainable leaders in Cincinnati.

Through an orientation weekend and educational sessions, participants will gain knowledge from experts in the areas of low impact art making and local environmental issues. Artists will be given a modest stipend and be encouraged to use what they learn from these sessions to create a piece, or series of pieces, that are informed by science and inspired by the 2021 workshop concentration: “Origins”, with a focus on materials- native, invasive, old, new, natural, synthetic, recycled, upcycled.

These experiences will culminate in each artist selecting one of their works created through this workshop to be featured in a two week long exhibit at MadTree Brewing in Oakley. You will have the option to allow your piece to be included in an auction, with total proceeds going to make this workshop possible for future years. 

Please note, you must be 18 years or older to participate.

Contact Aly at alaughlin@cincycac.org with any questions. Applications are due by May 1, 2021.

All participants must be available for the following days: June 12th AND 13th (Orientation weekend in Downtown Cincinnati and Camp Washington), July 19th OR 20th (Drop off art at Mad Tree), July 22nd (Opening for Exhibition at Mad Tree), August 5th OR August 6th (Potential art pick up if not sold in auction).

At the end of the workshop, artists will choose a piece of their work created during this program to be shown in an exhibit, and to be auctioned for the continuation of this program. Any artists who do not wish to have their art auctioned have the right to abstain.

way, but know that the artwork will be seen by children.

Where joy most revels, grief doth most lament;
Grief joys, joy grieves, on slender accident. -- Hamlet, III.2
