Executive Director | City of Asylum (Pittsburgh, PA)

We seek a leader who is committed to defending, celebrating, and building a community valuing creative free expression, who can address the day-to-day challenges with entrepreneurial energy and imagination. The Executive Director of City of Asylum will be taking over from the co-founders, who have directed the organization since 2004. This transition has been long-planned, as the next step to follow the successful development of our new $10.7 million Alphabet City facility and the expansion of our programming.

City of Asylum creates a thriving community for writers, readers, and neighbors. We provide sanctuary to endangered literary writers, so that the writers can continue to write and their voices are not silenced. And we offer a broad range of free literary, arts, and humanities programs in a community setting to build social equity through cultural exchange. We anchor neighborhood economic development by transforming blighted properties into homes for our programs
