Curatorial and Privacy Policies; Terms and Conditions of Use
In addition, we have some definite opinions about the types of jobs we want to make available to our community. We believe that qualified, trained creative people need a place to find meaningful work that can bring them joy, purpose and a paycheck or other tangible form of compensation.
The Art Career Café is the place to find and list job opportunities in the creative workforce. We broadly define this to include private, non-profit and public sector work.
Examples include jobs for artists of all kinds, teaching artists, administrators, executive, back stage, back room, front of house, front line, production, freelance, consulting, contract, seasonal, temporary, seamstress, milliner, dolly operator, best boy, artist's assistant or any other aspect of the creative economy. We'll happily post jobs for everything from the local mom and pop operation to a national organization.
That said, we do have a few things we don't post. . .
- We do not post uncompensated work opportunities or volunteer positions. While we understand that these are an important part of our creative workforce eco-system, we also know that there are many other ways to find these opportunities. Compensation can take many forms of course - stipends, free housing, school course credits - but it must be more than free tickets. If you are unsure if your opportunity fits this criteria, contact us and we'll be happy to discuss it with you.
- We reserve the right to refuse to post jobs that do not fit the broad definition for creative work that we’ve identified above, postings that are irrelevant to our purpose or contain inappropriate language or references.
- We do not discriminate with regard to all those things that make human, such as but not limited to race, gender, religion, different abilities or sexual preferences.
- We do reserve the right to refuse to post anything from businesses that have evidence of being discriminatory or lacking in appropriate and generally accepted hiring and workplace standards.
We appreciate your understanding of our policies. We also always solicit your feedback. If you have any concerns, please contact us.
