For the first time in QCC’s history, we are hiring a full-time Executive Director. We seek someone who can intentionally, strategically, and with clear vision bring QCC into a new phase of being. Are you that person? Do you know that person?
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
The Queer Cultural Center is looking for an Executive Director, a dynamic leader to build on our 26 year history of visionary art making, cultural production, and uplifting and prioritizing Queer and Trans communities of color.
The Executive Director is responsible for implementing QCC’s mission to promote the artistic
and financial development of Queer and Trans artists, art and culture. Additionally, the
Executive Director, in close coordination with the Staff and Board of Directors, is responsible for strategic planning and goal setting, developing and managing budgets and financial objectives, and day-to-day operations.
To be a good fit for this job, you must thrive in environments that call for creative thinking, fastmoving collaborative work, and high-stakes judgement calls. You must set the tone for
professionalism and make time to honor and acknowledge our staff’s labor.
You must be an impactful strategist with a passionate commitment to elevating the art of
Queer and Trans individuals. You must have a demonstrated commitment to racial and social
justice, experience working in communities and organizations led by communities of color, and
a strong awareness of power, privilege, and equity. You must have a demonstrated commitment
to disrupting white supremacy, and Trans/Homophobia.
You must provide leadership and vision that advances QCC’s programs and heightens our
organization’s local, regional, statewide, and national visibility.
This is a full-time position. Our schedule of 20-30 programs during the National Queer Arts
Festival, requires that the Executive Director work some nights and weekends across the San
Francisco Bay Area.
