Cultural Officer for Ireland - New York

Cultural Officer for Ireland – New York

The Consulate General of Ireland in New York is seeking to recruit a Cultural Officer.  The deadline for receipt of applications for this role will be 17.00 Friday 10th July. 

Introduction

Applications are invited for the post of Cultural Officer for Ireland in New York. This position will enhance the promotion of Irish arts and artists in New York and elsewhere in the United States, working to serve the needs of the Consulate General of Ireland (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) and of Culture Ireland (Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht).

This is a new post created as part of the Irish Government’s Global Ireland strategy to widen and deepen our cultural presence and engagement worldwide, including through the appointment of specialist Cultural Officers in priority locations.  Within this context, the Government’s Strategy for the US and Canada states that “Ireland will double our impact by promoting our culture and nurturing our reputation across the US and Canada”.

New York is a global creative hub, with a consistently strong Irish cultural presence of institutions and artists, both visiting and locally based.   This role will add value for the Government in an already thriving space. It will also foster a joined up approach to the promotion of Irish arts in the wider US and achieve wider touring opportunities for Irish artists.

The position will be offered on the basis of a three-year fixed-term contract.

The Consulate General of Ireland in New York (CGNY) mission is to promote and protect Irish interests and values in the region, working with the Irish and Irish-American communities and others and supporting and growing the strong partnership between the United States and Ireland.

Culture Ireland promotes Irish arts worldwide, creating and supporting opportunities for Irish artists and companies to present and promote their work at strategic international festivals and venues, and developing platforms to present outstanding Irish work to international audiences through showcases at key global arts events.

Role and Responsibilities

Reporting directly to the Consul General with an additional reporting function to the Director of Culture Ireland, and working under the strategic guidance of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht,  responsibilities will include:

  • Promote Ireland’s cultural engagement throughout the CGNY Consular region (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia), in line with relevant multi-annual strategies and programmes to promote Irish culture internationally.
  • Work with Culture Ireland to extend and maximise touring opportunities for artists being supported to present work in the US, and develop a regional approach to cultural promotion across the eastern United States.
  • Work to broaden the reach of Irish culture across the United States, outside traditionally stronger locations, including through developing relationships with partner organisations on an ongoing basis and the meetings of the network of Irish cultural centres and organisations in North America.
  • Map and cultivate relationships with cultural organisations in the region, and broker partnerships between Irish and US artists, ensembles, institutions, venues and festivals, including the Irish artistic and creative diaspora resident in the region.
  • Work alongside other European Consulates-General and the EUNIC (EU National Institutes for Culture) network to situate Ireland and Irish culture in its European context, presenting Ireland as both European and Irish.
  • Support Culture Ireland as required in the effective delivery of its showcase events, and assist in the development, delivery and promotion of cultural events generally on behalf of Culture Ireland, DFAT and other relevant state bodies e.g. Tourism Ireland, including flagship or large-scale initiatives and cultural programmes for high-level visits by the President and Taoiseach.
  • Work with Screen Ireland to promote opportunities for the film, TV and animation industry and with relevant state bodies to develop links across other creative industries, e.g. architecture and design.
  • Assist and advise regarding the promotion of Irish studies in the region, including the expansion of the DCHG/Fulbright Commission partnership promoting the teaching of the Irish language in higher education institutions in the US.
  • Work with CGNY and the US offices of State Agencies headquartered in New York to maximise the potential economic impact of cultural events funded by the State and to promote Ireland’s visibility and reputation.
  • Monitor and report on the impact of cultural events, including those organised by the Consulate General, those in receipt of Culture Ireland support across the Eastern US, and other partnership-based events.
  • Navigate and adapt approaches as required to the evolving changes to Irish and US arts ecologies as a result of the COVID-19 panademic. 

Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate:

  • Capacity to take the initiative and to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
  • Extensive and up-to-date knowledge of contemporary Irish arts as well as of the New York and wider US arts and cultural sector, including festivals, venues and local agents and promoters.
  • Proven ability to deliver arts and cultural projects.
  • High-level networking skills including the capacity to develop and strengthen links with partner organisations
  • Strong organisational and administrative skills.
