Board Recruitment

Thank you for your interest in joining the Independent Arts & Media Board of Directors!

The IAM Board of Directors is currently recruiting to expand its membership, and welcomes your interest.

Our mission is to support independent, non-commercial arts and media projects and producers for the purpose of building community and civic participation, and facilitating cultural engagement and free expression.

We use a mission-driven fiscal sponsorship program to activate creative and productive capacity in neglected communities. Our long-term vision is to strengthen a culture of democracy by cultivating arts and media projects that engage neighbors in civic life.

In 2014 we received more than $400,000 in tax-deductible funding for management and regranting to our fiscally sponsored affiliates.  We currently support over 60 affiliates dedicated to non-commercial work in media and the arts, including publishing, theater, dance, music, visual art, film and video, journalism, history, and public-events production.

We have no full-time staff, and work with a contracted operations manager and CPA to ensure operational integrity. The IAM Board otherwise directly oversees all programming.
