Summary & Responsibilities

The Biennial of the Americas seeks a Marketing, Communications and Graphic Design Coordinator to support the marketing and promotion of its biennial festival of ideas, arts and culture. The Biennial of the Americas is the only festival of art and ideas in the world focused exclusively on the Americas. The Festival brings together our growing network of business, civic and government leaders from across our hemisphere to explore solutions to shared issues, and foster more substantive political, commercial and cultural exchange.

Launched in 2010, the Biennial was formed around the transformational idea that the north-south axis is a critical nexus of business and social import, which receives too little attention. Our roster of ongoing programs provides year-round opportunities to connect with others in the hemisphere, inspire and be inspired by positive change happening in our backyard, and invest in ideas with the potential to make lasting impacts.
