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 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.​

Founder Molly W. Schenck

Molly W. Schenck (MFA, MEd.) is a multi-hyphenated arts and somatics practitioner whose body of work is rooted in a quest to understand humans. She is fascinated with human movement - whether that a social justice movement, individuals persisting through systems, or how a body moves through space and time. She is also interested in what interrupts the full expression of movement (stress, trauma, burnout, injuries, chronic pain, etc.). This has guided the evolution of her studies and career path. She worked in higher education as an adjunct professor and administrator for ten years. She taught mind body and group fitness classes for twelve years. She specializes in the intersection of creativity and trauma and is the creator of Trauma-Informed Creative Practices. She is the founder of Grey Box Collective (an interdisciplinary, experimental, post-dramatic, trauma-informed arts organization that devises original performances around topics of social and emotional wellbeing i.e. makes weird art about tough stuff). She is also a certified Trauma Support Specialist, Personal Trainer, a 500-hour experienced yoga teacher (focused on asana, pranayama, and meditation), a registered somatic dance educator and somatic movement therapist. For more information visit http://mollywschenck.com.
