Vermont Folklife Center Seeks Director of Education, Applications Due July 15

Posted by: Alexandra Sanchez

The Vermont Folklife Center (VFC) seeks candidates for the position of Director of Education.

The Director of Education is an integral member of the VFC staff whose primary responsibility is to administer VFC’s robust, statewide education programming. The aim of VFC’s education program is to create pathways for Vermonters to see, participate in, and comprehend the transformative power of ethnography as a method for education and social change. The Director of Education will organize and direct programs that teach ethnographic methods and concepts, and provide training and support to Vermonters seeking to undertake their own community-defined, cultural initiatives. 

VFC’s Education program plays a central role in supporting the mission and vision of VFC, providing opportunities for dialogue and collaboration between VFC staff, students, educators, families, and local communities throughout Vermont. Through this position, VFC seeks to build connections across divides, promote equity, and foster empathy and mutual respect.

A strong candidate for this position is a trained and experienced ethnographer committed to community-based research and education initiatives. While knowledge of traditional arts is an asset, this position particularly seeks a candidate with a strong vision for how ethnography can be transformative for learning and engagement in multiple educational contexts.

Deadline to apply is July 15, 2020.
