Building for the Arts (BFA) in New York City seeks a collaborative and innovative leader to join a team of talented staff, artists, and board members in the role of
Who is Building for the Arts?
Nonprofit Building for the Arts (BFA) expands access to the performing arts by providing creative space, learning opportunities, and hubs for artistic connection.
Founded in 1976 as the 42nd Street Development Corporation, the organization was crucial in transforming the stretch of 42nd Street west of the Port Authority into a vibrant, accessible, and welcoming area. BFA has owned its facility since 1991 when it was purchased from the City of New York. The organization remains in a strong financial position with an overall operating budget of $4.5 million with opportunities for growth through earned and contributed revenue streams.
Today BFA is a leader in building communities through artist services, affordable theatre and arts programming, and a highly effective music education program. We truly are building for the arts.
BFA operates Theatre Row (TR), a vibrant and affordable performing arts complex that provides a Theater District home for non-profit and commercial live entertainment and performing arts companies. TR has six theaters and five rehearsal studios with capacities ranging from 55 - 199 seats each, as well as support spaces, BFA administrative office spaces, and rental office spaces. Building for the Arts partners with more than 100 companies each year, offering reasonably priced rentals, ticketing, and tech support to more than 3,000 artists. The ten companies-in-residence -including Theater Breaking Through Barriers, The Mint, Pan Asian Rep, Keen Company, and NYC Children's Theater-represent a diversity of missions and audiences, forming one of NYC's most vibrant collections of companies under one roof.
Music and the Brain, our signature arts education program, brings a music literacy curriculum and classroom keyboard instruction to schools in under-resourced communities. We empower music educators and ensure equity for all learners, helping students build skills to succeed academically and in life. Our new Music and the Brain All Access hybrid learning platform (recognized by Fast Company's Innovation by Design Awards and the Webby's Anthem Awards) allows us to reach our students in schools, at home, or both. As we reach our 25th anniversary year, the program has benefitted more than 500 teachers and 475,000 students nationwide. We currently have 350 partner schools, in NYC, Newark, NJ, Philadelphia. Miami, New Orleans, Nashville and Ferguson, MO to name a few.
In 2021, the American Playwriting Foundation (AFP) merged with BFA to award and present APF's Relentless Award (established in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman). The award is the largest annual cash prize in American theater given to a playwright in recognition of a new play. For the past six years, APF has launched new talent and works of art that may not have been produced otherwise. Recipients of the award include award winning authors Sarah DeLappe, Clare Barron, Aleesha Harris, and Harrison David Rivers. In 2022, for the first time, this award will recognize a new musical in honor of Adam Schlesinger. The annual Award celebration, held at Theatre Row, will include a reading of a portion of the winning play/musical, performed by professional actors. The audience will be comprised of invited producers, directors, dramaturgs, actors, as well as the members of the Award Committee (which includes such notables as Lynn Nottage, Eric Bogosian, Sam Hollander, and Jonathan Marc Sherman), all Finalists and Honorable Mention Winners and more.
Our Board of Directors is composed of 11 members who represent many different facets of professional, social, and demographic life. We are continually seeking greater diversity on our Board, based on both personal identity and skill set. Currently 55% of our board are women and 18% are people of color.
