Market Assessment Advisor (Temporary) | Sitka Center for Art and Ecology (Otis, OR)

About Sitka
The Sitka Center for Art and Ecology fosters creativity, intellectual inquiry, and education through its artist-in-residence, workshop, and art exhibition programming. Founded in 1970 at Cascade Head on the Oregon coast near the Salmon River estuary, the Sitka Center operates a 0.66-acre facility that includes a library, residences, and studio space. From June to September we offer more than 100 workshops covering a variety of artistic and ecological topics. From October to May Sitka provides the gift of space and time to more than a dozen artists in-residence that live on campus for up to 3.5 months. Each November, Sitka travels to Portland to operate the Sitka Art Invitational, an art exhibition and sale featuring 130+ Pacific Northwest artists.

The Center recently acquired a property that expands our capacity, our programming, and our commitment to the ecology portion of our mission. As we approach our 50th anniversary, we are looking for a Market Assessment Advisor to conduct a market analysis of national and international art + ecology residency and workshop programs and other art + science collaborations.
