Who We Are:
Art Enables is an art gallery and vocational arts program dedicated to creating opportunities for adult artists with disabilities to create, market, and earn income from their original work while building the skills, relationships, and experiences necessary for a successful career in the arts. We offer our artists the studio space, materials, and marketing support they need to develop and succeed as professionals. We envision a world where artists with disabilities can discover their creativity, showcase and market their work, and achieve professional success and a sense of self-determination without boundaries or barriers.
The Program Coordinator is responsible for working closely with artist program participants, their support teams, supporting agencies, and the DC Department of Disability Services (DDS) to coordinate artist services to ensure artists have a professionally and personally successful experience at Art Enables. This includes, but is not limited to, coordinating assessment and enrollment, annual goal planning, case consultations, and vocational support and coordination. The Program Coordinator manages critical elements of our partnership with DDS, including artist and organizational reporting requirements, training requirements, and annual reviews. The Program Coordinator also works closely with artists supporting their studio activity. This role is both strategic and tactical, requiring the ability to think big while effectively managing the detail-oriented duties of the role. The Program Coordinator must be a savvy project manager who is comfortable juggling multiple deliverables for different people on different timelines. This role will report to and work closely with the Executive Director (ED), in addition to partnering with other staff to coordinate artist services.
