Hispanic Alliance seeks arts + education director


The Hispanic Alliance (HA) seeks an entrepreneurial, arts-focused individual who can turn the goals of a joint project between Hispanic Alliance, the South Carolina Arts Commission (SCAC), and the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) into a reality.

The three-year project seeks to support the SCDE’s expansion of arts learning initiatives. SCDE has partnered with SCAC, who in turn will administer and deploy resources to support numerous arts-based pilot projects across the state. Hispanic Alliance’s project, one such pilot, aims to support early education and diversity by curating arts experiences for young students to interact with art by diverse artists. The goals of the project are:

  1. To celebrate Hispanic cultures and help build pride in the richness of the
    diverse traditions of South Carolina’s growing Hispanic/Latinx community.
  2. To foster collaboration across cultures and community building by
    supporting projects that celebrate multiculturalism and diversity.
  3. To build capacity within local and statewide educational systems to equitably
    serve Hispanic/Latinx students.

The role

A successful individual in the role of arts and education director will be able to connect several parties into a series of tangible efforts, including but not limited to: diverse artists, SCDE and SCAC representatives, school officials, parents, students, HA stakeholders, in-school and out-of-school educators, and community members. The person will be familiar with art, artists, and art curriculum but also be able to navigate the nuances of grant management, SCDE and SCAC goals and measurements, and state dynamics to ensure final products are high quality, in alignment with stated goals, and are sustainable into the future.
