NEW INC is the world’s first museum-led incubator, and a program of the New Museum, co-founded in 2013 by Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director, and Karen Wong, Deputy Director of the New Museum. NEW INC is a not-for-profit platform that furthers the Museum’s ongoing commitment to new art and new ideas. Entering our sixth year, we currently support 100 members working at the intersection of art, design and technology—50% of whom are women, and 50% are PoC. Member participation in the program includes either a dedicated desk or swing desk, enrollment in our professional development program and access to our rich mentor and alumni network.
Reporting to the Director of Strategic Operations, the Program Coordinator is responsible for providing hands on support to the NEW INC team, and our members to deliver NEW INC’s annual program to our community of 100 members working at the intersection of art, design and technology. The NEW INC program consists of three main pillars: office space, professional development, and mentorship. This is a community-focused position with a strong focus on event production, operations and administration, and customer service. This is a key role in supportive planning on major public events, and leads planning and production for smaller, internal events for our member community. The Program Coordinator is responsible for the creation, maintenance, and oversight of NEW INC as a creative, productive working environment and takes ownership over the needs of the community and staff within that space. The Program Coordinator is NEW INC’s heartbeat, and the ideal candidate is driven, passionate, personable, and never misses a beat.
This is a full time position with regular working hours of 40hrs per week, Monday to Friday, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Occasional evening and weekend work may be required for special events. This position is a union-represented position subject to terms of the Museum’s agreement with Local 2110, UAW, and is eligible for the New Museum’s employee benefits programs.
