Pentacle Updates: Newsletter #3

Dear Pentacle friends and family,

I am excited to share that beginning in July, our longtime staff member, Clarissa Soto Josephs, transitioned from Pentacle’s Director of Programming to Associate Director! This marks an exciting turning point in our 43-year history. As always, Pentacle’s growth has been organic and so it is with great pleasure that we can continue this trend by seeking future leadership from within our staff.

Clarissa has been an integral part of Pentacle for the past nine years and I look forward to working closely with her in this new relationship. Along with the staff and Board, I see this as an important step towards Pentacle’s sustainable future serving the artists we support in NYC, nationally and internationally.

Cordially,
Mara
Director

Artists can choose a variety of topics, including Capacity Building & Management, Fiscal, Marketing, Booking & Touring and Grant Writing.
