The New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) is a 501(c)3 organization with an annual budget of $7.5 million. NEFA invests in artists and communities and fosters equitable access to the arts, enriching the cultural landscape in New England and the nation.
The Program Associate reports to the Program Coordinator for Presenting & Touring and works in close partnership with the Program Director and wider New England Programs team including the Program Director for Research and Creative Economy and the Program Associate for CreativeGround. Additionally, the Program Associate will collaborate with other NEFA staff to advance cross-program or organization-wide planning and initiatives.
The Program Associate provides administrative support to NEFA’s portfolio of regional grant programs and works with staff to maintain the highest level of efficiency in executing events and initiatives. The goals of the programs are to support the presentation and touring of New England artists across the region, as well as to strengthen the capacity of presenters – of all sizes and types – to collaborate with artists, build audiences, and serve communities. In addition to grantmaking, the New England programs team administers the website CreativeGround, NEFA’s regional database of artists and creative enterprises, and oversees the planning for NEFA’s two signature conferences, the annual Idea Swap, and the biennial Creative Communities Exchange (CCX). The Program Associate will be a key partner in supporting the successful execution of these events.
