There are three primary focus areas for this position: marketing and communications management, research and development, and production assistance. During the duration of this position, the assistant may be involved in supporting an encore performance of PAUSE… (a performance about the mental health of grief and loss), transcribing and closed captioning podcast interviews, conducting research, compiling organizational reports, assisting in the administration and production of new work centered on the mental health of othering and belonging, managing all social media platforms to build digital visibility, promoting events, and highlighting our creative activity.

We welcome individuals from a wide range of studies and experience including: social entrepreneurship, non-profit and/or for-profit organization and leadership, digital media landscape, marketing, public relations, advertising and audience development, graphic design, stage management, rehearsal direction, and/or other performance management roles. We are particularly interested in working with individuals who are interested in the intersection of trauma and creativity and/or trauma-informed creative practices in theory and practice. Individuals who wish to work with GBC must understand that Grey Box Collective is a trauma-informed arts organization committed to holding compassionate spaces for ourselves and others. We embody multiple truths, we center taking care of ourselves, we get uncomfortable, and ensure sustainable practices are embedded in all that we do. We believe this work leads to a just society. We value honesty, transparency, and quality over quantity. Through our actions, reflections, and art-making, we aim to challenge and re-shape the status quo in our organization, in our bodies, and our communities.
