Fostering artistic excellence

About

Brew House Association (BHA) is a nonprofit art center on Pittsburgh’s South Side providing creative space and support for people to connect and expand their relationship with the arts.  Brew House Association (BHA) provides a wide range of creatives with the support needed to foster invention, creation, and collaboration. Our spaces, programs, and people encourage the pursuit of artistic excellence.

BHA is searching for committed and enthusiastic volunteers to join their Board of Directors. Board members are the organization’s decision-makers and ambassadors, providing leadership in the Strategic Plan’s oversight and execution. It is essential that they share in BHA’s values for the arts and community building.

BHA aims to:

  • Foster pathways for collaboration and exchange between neighbors
  • Encourage mentorship at various stages of artistic development
  • Offer an accessible and affordable atmosphere for experimentation and creative risk taking
  • Increase social awareness through representation of non-mainstream perspective

Responsibilities

Board members are required to attend board meetings, which meet every other month, and serve on two committees that meet during alternate months as needed. All board and committee meetings currently meet using video conferencing and will continue to do so until it is safe to meet in person. Each term is three years, and there is a two-term limit. Approximate time commitment is 3-8 hours per month. Board members are expected to contribute financially in an amount and frequency that is meaningful to them.

Qualifications

The most critical qualifications for new board members are enthusiastic interest and a commitment to showing up. For the term beginning in July 2021, special consideration will be given to candidates with experience in accounting and finance, graphic design and marketing, fundraising and grant-writing, or leadership and strategic planning. Board members should have an interest in cultivating and growing relationships. Previous service on a non-profit board is preferred but not required.

Underrepresented candidates, including black and non-black people of color, people with disabilities, speakers of languages besides English, and people who identify as LGBTQ+, are strongly encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and resume to Carin Mincemoyer, Board President, at info@brewhousearts.org.

We invite you to visit the gallery in-person to see the current exhibition, Roots Run Deep: A Survey of Contemporary African American Hair Culture, through March 6.
