Managing Director


The Serenbe Institute is conducting a search for a full-time Managing Director. The mission of the Institute is to serve as the steward of a sustainable and thriving arts, culture and environmentally conscious community.  Founded in 2005 we believe that the arts, along with diverse cultural experiences and regular interaction with our natural environment, have the unique ability to bind us together in our humanity and allow us to live healthier and more interconnected lives.  Through our incubations of highly acclaimed programming Units (Serenbe Playhouse; AIR Serenbe, and Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre) the Institute has helped to propel the community of Serenbe into a position of national prominence in intentional development and design with artistic, cultural and environmental experiences in mind.
