Join the NACHMO Artist Committee

NACHMO (National Choreography Month) is seeking a dance lover who can help an organization with terrific momentum take its next big step. NACHMO is an annual challenge that spurs dancers to make new work by providing a month-long deadline and a community of peers. We offer opportunities for participants to share their new work with each other and with the public in both informal and fully produced shows.

Founded in 2009, NACHMO has grown in its participant base and its geographic reach. This past winter, over 270 dance artists from across the country participated in making new work. We produced shows in Brooklyn, Columbus, Boston, and Baltimore.

As we grow, we’re looking for an Artist Committee Member with skills in networking, fundraising, and development who’s interested in researching and applying for grants and planning fundraising events.

Our advisory board is comprised of a knowledgeable and fun group of co-schemers. We meet once a month in Manhattan, and members from across the country are welcome to join in over Skype.

Artist Committee Members contribute about 3 hours of work each month between September and March.

Members do not have financial responsibilities.

We welcome people at all stages of their careers, so this position could be a fun way to give back and use already developed skills, or a way to hone skills you’re developing and build your resume.

If you’re interested, please email info@nachmo.org and tell us about yourself!
