We are seeking an experienced Project Manager with expertise in art management and organizing art shows to join our team. The selected candidate will play a pivotal role in overseeing a portrait collection project celebrating black civil rights icons and African leaders. While there will be oversight from senior management and counterparts based in the US, this individual will primarily be responsible for independently running the project. Collaboration with another project manager will be essential, but the ability to work autonomously is crucial due to the remote nature of the team. The successful candidate will be tasked with managing all aspects of the project, from planning to execution, ensuring that sales, exhibitions, and fundraising efforts are conducted seamlessly to support education initiatives and empower entrepreneurs and artists of African descent.
Project Leadership: Take ownership of the portrait collection project, driving its success from start to finish. Work independently to develop and execute comprehensive project plans, ensuring alignment with organisational goals and objectives.
Art Management: Collaborate with artists and curators to select and acquire portraits of black civil rights icons and African leaders. Manage the digital and physical inventory of artwork, ensuring accuracy and quality standards are maintained.
Art Shows and Exhibitions: Organise and oversee art showings, exhibitions, and fundraising events. Coordinate logistics, venue arrangements, marketing efforts, and guest engagement to ensure successful outcomes.
Sales and Fundraising: Drive sales of artwork through online platforms, exhibitions, and other channels. Develop strategies to maximize revenue generation and support fundraising initiatives for education and community development programs.
Stakeholder Engagement: Build and maintain relationships with artists, vendors, sponsors, and community partners. Collaborate effectively with internal teams and external stakeholders to achieve project objectives.
Performance Monitoring and Reporting: Track project progress, sales metrics, and fundraising results. Generate regular reports to assess performance, identify areas for improvement, and provide updates to senior management and counterparts.
