Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center is looking for board members to join us in 2024. We are a non-profit arts organization with a mission to inspire hands, hearts, and minds through art forms produced by heat, spark, or flame. Our facility is unique in the Upper Midwest, supporting a wide array of fire art forms that includes blacksmithing, enameling, flameworking, jewelry-making, metal casting, neon, welding, and more. The pillars of our programming are education, artist support, and public art, which together provide a platform for social impact and community-driven resources.

This opportunity comes at a time when CAFAC is devoting our staff and financial resources to increasing equity and diversity in the fire arts, through scholarship disbursements, public art design and fabrication, and our burgeoning residency program.

Helpful skills could include: Development & fundraising, Community building & outreach, Event planning, Legal, Nonprofit experience, Arts and social justice background

Previous board experience is helpful but not required. We are committed to creating a diverse, sustainable, inclusive organization that supports community-centered creativity; members of historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Board members dedicate up to 8 hours per month for committee and board meetings, in addition to other activities.
