Obie-winning organization HERE has restructured its leadership hierarchy.

The company, which is a leader in the field of commissioning, producing, and presenting hybrid performances, will now be led by three co-directors, with each leading a different portion of the organization. 

The first of these co-directors to be announced is Amanda Szeglowski. Prior to becoming co-director, Szeglowski served as both the Associate Artistic Director and Marketing Director of HERE, playing key roles in all programmatic, curatorial, and marketing initiatives for the organization. She was awarded a three-year residency in the prestigious HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP) in 2014, through which HERE commissioned, developed, and produced her work Stairway to Stardom.

Said Szeglowski, “I have always loved the sheer diversity of art that embodies HERE and the electrifying feeling of, ‘what did I just witness?!’ that I have reveled in after countless HERE experiences. I am thrilled that I will be in a position to seek out, discover, and share more of these kinds of works with our audiences. I understand that each artist’s situation is unique and continuously evolving. HERE, and especially our Resident Artist Program, HARP, is dedicated to providing long-term support for artistic development. In order to do that effectively in today’s world, we need to be able to meet artists where they are and adapt our programs as their needs grow and change. I’m eager to join my Co-Directors in leading this trailblazing organization, whose courage and influence has shaped the field for three decades. Together, we will work to continue HERE’s legacy of always pushing forward.”

HERE’s Transition Committee, full board, industry advisors, and experts are now working together with consultants Doug Clayton, Calida Jones, and Rebecca Novick of Creative Evolutions to launch a national search for the additional two co-directors who will complement Szeglowski’s unique skills. The goal of the Transition Committee is to have the complete team selected by June 2024. The application period is open through March 29.
