Director of Public Programming
Posted on June 10, 2021

The Director of Public Programming for Park Avenue Armory is charged with creating a compelling public voice and engaging a diverse community around the Armory’s mission and programs through a range of convenings and events held in its historic rooms and landmarked building. Reporting to the President/Executive Producer, Rebecca Robertson, the Director of Public Programming is responsible for conceptualizing, designing, developing, and realizing the Armory’s Public Programming events in close collaboration with the Producing Director, Michael Lonergan, as well as the Programming, Production, and Marketing teams.

The goal of Public Programming at the Armory is to give voice to the Armory and further its role as a nurturing, relevant, diverse, and fearless artist-focused organization with exceptional programs that reflect the world we live in. Open and lively dialog with the public and artists served are facilitated through simultaneous talks, performances, and exhibitions, which can range from intimate art-form driven salons (such as Branden Jacobs Jenkins’ Salon on Literature) and spoken word performances (such as Hari Kondabolu’s Confrontational Comedy) to large scale gatherings and multi-disciplinary symposia (such Carrie May Weems’ symposium The Shape of Things: The Culture of Violence). These events have created a sense of community among artists and thought leaders gathered for a full day of discussions, performances, food, and music. The Director of Public Programming also advises the Programming team to bring dimension, context, and a range of perspectives to the Drill Hall programming in the form of Artist Talks.

The Director of Public Programming will bring their own perspective to creating, imagining, and shaping the Armory’s Public Programming, building on the strength developed over the last five years.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a legacy of success in an internationally renowned institution with one-of-a-kind facilities during a time of critical dialogue and action, as well as demand for meaningful cultural experiences.
