The core mission of Women’s Studio Workshop is to operate an artists’ workspace that encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists. WSW envisions a society where women’s visual art is integral to the cultural mainstream and permanently recorded in history.
The Digital Content Manager works to fulfill this vision by writing a blog post for each of WSW’s resident artists; managing all aspects of the website; and being an integral part of the marketing team.
The blog entails interviewing, photographing, and writing about each artist with the goal of celebrating her work, and offering a glimpse into our studios. These posts ideally place the work within a larger art historical and contemporary cultural context.
The Digital Content Manager works with the marketing team to post about programs, events, resident artists, and the blog. Specifically, the DCM works to promote the blog in concert with all other marketing initiatives in order to broaden WSW’s digital audience and place residents’ work into the cultural mainstream.
WSW is looking for someone with strong writing skills, a deep understanding of art, an interest in (and preferably, experience with) web design/function and social media marketing, and a desire to work with artists.
