“After 26 years creating and developing FotoFest, it is time for new leadership,” say FotoFest Co-founders Wendy Watriss and Fred Baldwin. “As part of FotoFest’s Board of Directors, we are inviting nominations and applications for the position of Executive Director of FotoFest.”
Fotofest is Watriss and Baldwin’s baby: they have led the development of the organization since its founding in 1983, growing it from a citywide Month of Photography in 1986, into an organization that sponsors four to six new photographic exhibitions and events in Houston each year, traveling exhibitions, the literacy through photography program, and its headliner, the sprawling Fotofest biennial, with an average annual budget of $1.7 million+ for the Biennial years and $800,000 for non-Biennial years.
The new Director will have four big shoes to fill, leading and overseeing the org’s future growth. The application deadline for the job is July 1, 2013
