“Umoja” means “unity” in the Swahili language of Africa. The Umoja African Arts Company’s mission since 1989 has been to increase awareness and appreciation for the rich culture of the continent of Africa. One way they do this is through their signature event — the African Arts in the Park festival — which brings together people of all cultures in Pittsburgh to enjoy the “explosive beats, insistent rhythms and haunting melodies of African music, drumming and dance.”
Umoja is currently recruiting three new members to join their Board of Directors to help them move the festival to the next level. They are seeking dynamic, creative, and dedicated individuals who can foster innovative ideas within the organization and add fresh voices. The Board’s main focus will be fundraising and finding exempt level employees at corporate organizations will help them to achieve an optimal mix of members.
If you are interested in joining Umoja African Arts Company’s Board of Directors, can give a two year commitment, and want to have a real impact on their organization, please submit your resume to Umoja African Arts Company at Umoja@UmojaCompany.org by October 10, 2013.
