The Mirken coordinator of campus and community collaboration is a critical member of the Colby Museum’s engagement team, which works to develop and facilitate dynamic art experiences and programs for audiences of all ages. Reporting to the Mirken curator of education and engagement, the Mirken coordinator is a key liaison to Colby campus student groups as well as community organizations in Waterville and throughout Central Maine, developing, facilitating, and sustaining ongoing and multi-year collaborative partnerships.
Working with museum colleagues, the Mirken coordinator takes a lead in coordinating student pathway opportunities within the museum that strengthen student understanding of the public value of museums. Working with Colby and local community partners, the coordinator creates community and civic partnerships as well as collaborations with student groups. They also oversee the museum student advisory board and student guides, and coordinate recruitment across the museum for student intern and worker opportunities. The Mirken coordinator plays a key role in the museum’s engagement and collaboration with the Waterville community, serving as part of the programming team for the Greene Block + Studios on Main Street and working with Lunder Institute for American Art and Colby Arts colleagues to plan and execute regular programming in the space and our community in ways that foster collective creativity, community participation, and connections between Colby students, community members, and visual and performing artists.
