ABOUT US

The Patricia Reser Center for the Arts (“The Reser”) is a nonprofit professional arts center currently under construction in downtown Beaverton, Oregon. Construction began in November 2019 and is scheduled to open to the public in early 2022. Immediately adjacent to City Hall, the facility will comprise a 550-seat Mainstage Theater, an art gallery, and meeting and rehearsal rooms.

 

The Reser is governed by the Board of Trustees of Beaverton Arts Foundation (doing business as Patricia Reser Center for the Arts), consisting of accomplished, respected, and dedicated community volunteers. In a successful public/private partnership with the City of Beaverton, they have brought The Reser to life.

 

The Reser will present national touring artists, local and regional performing arts organizations, visual arts exhibitions, arts education programs, and will serve as a social and cultural hub for Beaverton and its surrounding communities. For more information about the campaign to build the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts, please visit https://centerfortheartscampaign.org/.

 

Although Beaverton Arts Foundation dates from 1999, The Reser itself is a relatively new organization and, by its nature, will pass through several distinct phases before it achieves a mature, operating state. Its current developmental phase is focused on near-term projects: completing construction, the installation of theatrical systems, staff development and training, inaugural planning and programming, and the creation of the policies and practices that will guide its future. This pre-opening phase will be accompanied by changes in the size and structure of the staff, the focus of job responsibilities, and the skills required for success. Adaptability and a personal commitment to The Reser’s mission are vital qualities for any employee in this environment. The Event Manager’s scope of responsibilities will evolve to meet the needs of The Reser as it progresses through various phases toward opening, taking its place as an active arts center and a vital community resource.

 

Please note that this position is being filled at an extraordinary moment, in which it will be necessary to work remotely for some indefinite period. The successful candidate will be confident both in their ability to fulfill the job responsibilities remotely for as long as necessary, and to transition to working in a new building with a fast-paced start-up environment.
