The Mark Morris Dance Group seeks to hire a Processing Archivist to work on general management of the physical collection and digital assets comprising the Mark Morris Dance Group Archive. Reporting to the Archivist this is an hourly, part-time position.
The Mark Morris Dance Group Archive was developed as part of a three-year grant project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to process, digitize, and catalog the collection at the Mark Morris Dance Center. This project took place between 2017 and 2019, and work has been ongoing. Since 2020, the Archive has been working closely with various departments to produce virtual programming, curate online exhibitions, and improve upon the general functionalities of the CollectiveAccess database. The Archive is currently working to expand its current holdings to include other parts of the organization, such as Education and Community Engagement, Dance for PD®, Development, and Marketing.
The successful candidate joins a community of kind and dedicated arts and administrative professionals who are propelled by Mark Morris's commitment to artistic excellence, access to the arts, and the impact that the arts have in connecting and engaging communities. MMDG is committed to ongoing and sustained equity and inclusion work. All staff are expected to be actively engaged and dedicated to upholding our core values: celebrating our diverse community, pursuing excellence in all that we do, advancing access, exposure, and opportunity to dance and music, and cultivating creativity. Staff members also have opportunities to shape the culture of the organization through our Work, Life and Culture Committee working groups at a time when we are revamping our IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access) action plan, initiating an ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) strategic plan, and more.
