Job Title: Reporter, The Arts Paper

Interested candidates should familiarize themselves with the Arts Paper and submit three news clips, one potential pitch, a cover letter and resume to: info@NewHavenArts.org  

Classification - Permanent, part-time, exempt. Hours - 20 hrs/week, flexible with some evening and weekend work. Reports to - Editor, The Arts Paper. Salary - $20,000. Start date - Flexible, but ideally starting in November.

Responsibilities: The Arts Paper, the digital daily publication of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, is looking for a part-time reporter to cover arts, culture, and community from a hyper-local, grassroots perspective. While The Arts Paper is a program of the Arts Council, it is editorially independent from it, meaning coverage is not influenced by its members. We cover everything from gallery openings and arts festivals to how American Rescue Plan funding and vaccine mandates are helping regional theaters bounce back during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a reporter with us, you'll be responsible for coverage of community meetings, fine and performing arts events, neighborhood festivals, and the vibrant intersection of art and politics on the local and state level.

Requirements: You should be ready to hop on stories, track legislation, prepare original pitches, shoot and edit photos and video, and turn around pieces on a tight deadline. Prior experience in reporting is required; additional experience in news editing and knowledge of at least one foreign language is preferred. We take a very broad lens on arts and culture, so be prepared to attend church services, management team meetings, LGBTQ+ walking tours of the city, protests, high school choir rehearsals, and weekend art classes. The reporter must be based in the greater New Haven region and committed to working within an organization striving to advance anti-racism and cultural equity. To maintain a safe workplace, employees and contractors at the Arts Council are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, unless a reasonable accommodation is approved. Our work includes a mix of online and in-person activities, but we expect employees to communicate clearly with us if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe in an indoor environment. 

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven strives to advance our communities by providing leadership and support to our diverse arts community. We envision a thriving arts community at the heart of Greater New Haven and believe that art, culture, and creativity are fundamental human rights. We are committed to building a creative and dynamic work environment that celebrates individual differences and diversity and treats everyone with fairness and respect. We do not discriminate in practices or employment opportunities on the basis of an individual’s race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran status, disability, or any other category protected by federal, state, or local regulations.
