Creative Arts Team (CAT) is seeking an Executive Director to provide strategic direction, oversight, and overall management of this field-defining organization. CAT is a program within the City University of NY that uses the power of drama to creatively engage people in their own learning and lives, with a focus on fostering skills in communication, critical thinking, and social and academic literacy. Over the past 42 years, CAT has worked across NYC’s five boroughs with more than one million youth who reflect the City’s economic, ethnic, and cultural diversity. CAT’s professional Actor-Teachers combine the key components of drama — character, collaboration, story, and the dynamic relationship between actor and audience — to create one-of-a-kind interactive learning experiences for young people to acquire concrete skills they can reapply in their own lives. With the Senior Management Team, the ED will work to set fundraising targets, organizational priorities, and develop and articulate CAT’s vision going forward, translating its mission into programs and outcomes that positively impact the participants and organizations we serve and the fields of arts in education and applied theatre. We seek candidates who take a collaborative approach to problem-solving; are committed to cultural competency, progressive education and an activist, social justice perspective; and will preserve and expand the diversity of CAT’s personnel and participants.
