Staff

Serving artists and staffed by artists.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is a proud Equal Opportunity Employer. We believe that having a diverse staff is critical to effectively fulfilling our mission and increasing that diversity is a key organizational priority; women, people of color, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to join our team. Our staff is comprised largely of working artists — from all disciplines — who are all dedicated to serving artists and arts organizations.

Interested in working at NYFA? Open roles will be listed on NYFA Classifieds as they come available.
