This is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in these fields to get first hand experience at a non-profit organization that has been operating for more than twenty-years. A Gathering of the Tribes is a unique organization in that it maintains the true spirit of salon spaces that were ever-present in the heydays of NYC’s artistic revolution, but continue to dwindle due to market pressures. The executive director, Steve Cannon, is a retired blind professor of humanities, and continues to be an active pillar in the artistic community of NYC.

Submit all resumes to gatheringofthetribes@gmail.com, and cc the appropriate contact person(s). Follow up by calling Steve directly at 212-674-8262.
