About the Armory Creative Campus
The working vision of the Armory Creative Campus is to support Olympia’s artistic, collaborative, and entrepreneurial spirit. As a welcoming hub, where community members find an exchange of ideas and opportunities for creative expression it can provide a safe place and resources for exploration, positive interaction, and is dedicated to inclusive practices that center community voices from groups that are often underrepresented.
The City of Olympia is working with Ameresco to conduct a full-scale audit of the Armory facility as well as Phase 1 design and construction to make the building safe, accessible, and functional as a community art center. Additionally, the City is seeking community arts non-profits (anchor partners) to move their operations to the Armory after construction.
The successful candidate will be an essential member of the team who is responsible for helping lead the change of the Armory building into its new purpose of becoming a Creative Campus.
This position is represented by the AFSCME Union.
