Member Advisor, Programs
Full time / $58,385 annually / Fractured Atlas / New York, NY
Fractured Atlas is seeking a full-time Member Advisor for our Programs team. Fractured Atlas is a national nonprofit art service organization with a membership of over 75,000. Our mission is to make the journey from inspiration to living practice more accessible and equitable for artists and creatives. We are dedicated to helping individual artists and arts organizations at every level of the cultural ecosystem, in every creative medium by providing fundraising tools, educational resources, and personalized support. This position will provide administrative support for all of our programs and services and for the organization overall. The primary function of this role is to interact with our member artists on a day-to-day basis.
The successful candidate will be a creative problem solver and quick learner who has an enthusiasm for the arts, is incredibly personable over the phone and email, has a sense of humor, possesses a high level of patience and understanding (particularly as it relates to explaining the same information multiple times), and is able to operate and respond in a fast-paced environment while remaining calm and collected. Candidates with a work history that includes grant writing, fundraising, development, and/or customer service will likely excel. Since Fractured Atlas works virtually, this position will require self-motivation and will operate under remote supervision by the Associate Director, Membership & Operations.
At Fractured Atlas, we individually and collectively work hard to carry out our organization’s mission. Our policies are driven by a culture of care, which we practice by supporting team members in having full and robust lives outside of work, because we understand that work is just one part of life. With this context, our organizational culture embraces people who are open to:
- Building trust with others and addressing equitable distribution of responsibilities when collaborating;
- Learning new ways of working while welcoming change as a way to reshape processes/policies/programming that no longer serve our values;
- Practicing transparency in communications, decision making, and feedback; and
- Centering care and connection in our individual and collective work.
We recognize that the culture and core values of an organization should continue to evolve to reflect the world we live in. At any given time, emerging values other than our stated values (bit.ly/HWW-MissionValues) can form, and we are committed to continued conversations about how these can intersect.
Additionally, at Fractured Atlas we work to adhere to anti-oppression and anti-racism principles (bit.ly/ARAOguidelines) in all areas of our internal and external work. This commitment is grounded in our belief that change is possible, and that our work and that of the artistic community as a whole will grow stronger as oppression is eliminated.
In our current phase of this journey towards being an Anti-Racist Anti-Oppressive organization, the whole staff is engaged in all staff ARAO meetings led by rotating teams and undergo training as part of their onboarding process. We recognize that we do not have all of the answers as we pursue this work. This work will continue to shift as the Fractured Atlas team changes. We ask that new team members join us as we continue to learn, practice, and grow in this work. Learn more about what it’s like to work at Fractured Atlas at bit.ly/HWW-Homepage.
