About the Wende Museum
“Wende” is a German word that means “transformation.” It is commonly used to describe the era of uncertainty and possibility leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall. Headquartered in a renovated National Guard Armory in Culver City, the Wende Museum, a 501©3 nonprofit organization, is an experimental and forward-thinking institution that pairs unparalleled collections from the Cold War era with contemporary artists, filmmakers, musicians, scholars, and others. With a commitment to both international scholarship and local community engagement, the Wende offers wide-ranging programs, from lectures and research access to free yoga classes and art activities for all ages. We are looking for a confident, adaptable, detail-oriented Visitor Engagement and Education Manager who can proactively lead the daily operations of our outstanding VE&E team, and who has a strong passion for visitor services and education.
The Visitor Engagement and Education Manager plays a key role in making the overall museum experience, from gallery visits and tours to ongoing education programming and events, positive and thought-provoking for all museum stakeholders. As the head of Education, the VE&E Manager unites engagement and education and takes the museum’s growing VE&E initiative into its exciting next phase. This is a supervisory position with high inter-departmental exposure and reports to the Gallery and Special Projects Manager.
This position requires the flexibility to work a Wednesday through Sunday week, including some evenings, to support ongoing programming, the museum’s public open days (Fri-Sun), and events. While days and hours may vary from week to week, an average workweek of 40 hours is expected.
