Posted on 1/9/23
Reports to: Marketing Manager


3S Artspace seeks a creative marketing professional who is passionate about the arts and community-building to help increase the visibility of 3S Artspace. The Marketing Coordinator supports general marketing efforts for 3S Artspace, working towards attendance and revenue goals for our Performance Space, Galleries, and new artisan retail shop.


Organizational Overview

3S Artspace is guided by our vision that by creating a space for the intersection of art and contemporary issues, we can inspire each other to stay curious, foster empathy, and fuel creativity.

3S Artspace opened its doors to the public for full-time operations in 2015 and has evolved from a creative start-up to an essential contributor to the Seacoast’s arts and entertainment scene. Operating a multi-disciplinary art space during the pandemic challenged our young organization to think creatively, to remain flexible, and to never lose sight of our central commitment to contemporary visual and performing artists, to our audiences, and to our community. We have never been more certain of the critical role that the arts play in all of our lives.

We look forward to meeting the goal-oriented, flexible, and creative individual(s) that will help us bring new audiences in the door to experience 3S Artspace.
