– Special Events & Development

Equal Opportunity and Commitment to Diversity
En Garde Arts is committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive and equitable environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We are dedicated to increasing our team’s racial diversity as it enriches our work, art and community. We encourage candidates who identify as people of color, TGNC, LGBTQ+ and Disabled to apply. We are interested in candidates who are not historically represented in our field, and encourage applications from under-represented groups. All applications will be kept confidential.
About En Garde Arts
En Garde Arts is a New York City-based, Obie and Drama Desk award-winning theatre company. Founded by Artistic Director Anne Hamburger in 1985, the company has a long history of creating site-specific work with social impact at its core. We create, produce and present bold theatre experiences that reach across artistic, physical and social boundaries. We aim to increase empathy and open-mindedness by illuminating nuanced perspectives and unspoken truths behind the salient issues of our time. We are committed to lifting up under-represented voices and bringing them visibility and critical attention.
With the advent of the pandemic, En Garde has pivoted back to our site-specific roots and we’re envisioning Covid-responsible projects that will take place in 2021. We are launching two site-specific outdoor festivals with business improvement districts in New York that we feel can be a model for how we may work with cities, governmental agencies and BIDs across the country to develop a new source of earned income that will help us maintain financial stability in these uncertain times.
In addition to these presenting festivals, En Garde Arts will continue to commission, develop and produce original work. In 2021, we are producing A Dozen Dreams, a theatre-meets-art-installation, presented by Arts Brookfield premiering in May, in which we have asked a dozen women playwrights “what are you dreaming about right now?” and these dreams will be brought to life through sets, lights, video and sound.
En Garde Arts is a small organization that always tackles ambitious projects. We are highly collaborative risk takers with a national reputation for artistic excellence.
