ABOUT US: Founded in 2020, The Strides Collective produces and develops theatrical work by emerging playwrights that embraces the queer experience through authentic, modern, and innovative storytelling. Our work prioritizes the goal of normalizing the conversation about queer identity, creating a safe haven in which emerging artists can tell their stories and have the ability to express themselves without fear of judgment.

OPPORTUNITY: The Strides Collective is composed of 10 Collective Members who perform administrative and artistic duties for the company. We are looking for an individual to fill the new role on our Leadership Team: Director of Membership and Engagement beginning July 1, 2023.

Transparency is one of our core values; as such, we want to state upfront that all Collective members are currently volunteers.  We deeply value our members' time and passion; as a Collective, we all assist each other to create a safe and healthy working environment.  We recognize that the requirements of this opportunity may not be a fit for everyone. We will provide at least a $200 stipend before the end of 2023, and as we continue to grow, we look to create more stable financial compensation. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]
