Hiring Commitment

Friday, July 10, 2020

Sarasvàti Productions joins its voice to other organizations and institutions that unreservedly acknowledge that racism and sexism continue to impact how we function in our respective areas of society. While Sarasvàti exists to break down barriers in the theatre world, we know we can do better. As a Board of Directors we are struggling with how to make the most of the opportunity we now have concerning hiring a new Artistic Director, and because this is such a crucial time in our Company, we want to get this right. Our Board will continue to actively engage with this question in the coming weeks, in order to devise a strategy to meet this goal.

Please see full job posting.

We want to express a huge thank you to consulting IBPOC artists for their input to date on our current hiring process for Artistic Director. We were happy to offer compensation to make sure that information was clear and that there were no barriers preventing a range of candidates from applying.

Our deadline for applications is this Friday, July 17th. Although shortlisting for interviews will begin at this time, we wanted to clarify that we will continue to accept applications until an offer is made.

We are encouraging applications from all candidates with theatre experience in any area (administrators, actors, playwrights, stage managers, directors, producers) who are passionate about a leadership role and feel the skills listed are a match. We have done our best to share the posting through a wide range of non-traditional means and are grateful to community groups who have helped disseminate the opportunity. We appreciate any continued assistance in spreading the word.
