Posted November 15, 2021

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis through December 31, 2021.

An established cultural institution in the greater Washington, DC, area for over 35 years, Washington Revels is dedicated to reviving, sustaining, expanding, and celebrating cultural traditions — in music, dance, storytelling, and drama — that bind people together in spirit and joy. Annual events include the professionally staged and directed Christmas Revels (drawing thousands of attendees each December), May Revels, Community Sings, Pub Sings, parades and more, in venues ranging from outdoor parks to a 1500-seat theater.

Washington Revels seeks a full-time Executive Director to lead our performing arts community in its next phase of growth. As chief executive and leader of staff, reporting to the board, the primary goal is to guide the strategic implementation of Washington Revels’ mission. This will require a philanthropic leader with comprehensive knowledge of all matters related to institutional advancement and fundraising. Prospective candidates must have a demonstrated track record of effective management in a nonprofit organization of similar size and complexity. Prior experience in management of a performing arts group, in cultivating relationships with major donors and foundations, and in enhancing the diversity, equity, and inclusion of an organization, are a plus.
