Accounting for the Arts! (Very PT)
1 person is interested
We are a 12 year old theater social justice company in NYC looking for an accountant who can advise on the best uses for our Quickbooks account, and can help us file taxes and other IRS-required forms throughout the year (not to worry - we have already done our 990-EZ taxes for 2020!) We’ve been using Quickbooks for 4 years, and have several recent transactions that have been entered incorrectly, making reconciling difficult. We have no debt, and are fiscally responsible, so it should be a very easy occasional job. We’re not yet at the point when we need an audit (our budget is still too small) but it would be wonderful to have everything in place for when we do in a few years. Why is this important for us? We're a non-profit theater that is rapidly growing, with intentions of becoming a permanent, robust home for artists to make a living wage and create art that makes a difference. To do this, we have to make sure that our financials are clearly recorded, tracked, and reported. Our work has a social impact - specifically involving women, LGTBQIA, BIPOC, immigrant, and disabled communities - and explores issues that our society is grappling with deeply. We donate to social justice causes at means something to us. And importantly, 20% of our tickets are given for free to the community so that anyone can afford to come to the theater. Our name "The Seeing Place" is the literal translation of the Greek word for theater: "theatron...the place where we go to see ourselves." The Seeing Place is a trained, actor-driven ensemble and our mission is to create master theater, reinterpreted live, to make it relevant and accessible to audiences today. We live up to our name by engaging our community through theater as a vivid conversation about what makes us human.
Connection. Learning. Humanity. That’s what theatron is all about.

No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About SEEING PLACE THEATER INC
165 E 87th Street, NEW YORK, NY 10128, US
Our name "The Seeing Place" is the literal translation of the Greek word for theater (theatron): ". . . the place where we go to see ourselves." The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company dedicated to exploring the intersection between the actor's voice and the playwright's words, by reinterpreting masterful works live and in the moment to make them relevant, visceral, truthful, and accessible to a modern audience. We live up to our name by engaging our community in a vivid conversation about what makes us human. Connection. Learning. Humanity. That's what theater is all about.
The Seeing Place is an actor-driven company: built by actors and managed by actors to be a base for actors who want to hone their craft in a creative and supportive artistic home, resulting in unparalleled dedication and excellence.
Theater is society's hands-on, in-person study of human behavior. By placing a keen focus on behavioral storytelling, The Seeing Place has become well-known for intense and intimate ensemble work. Productions are rehearsed in a structured, organic manner, involving improvisation and heavy script analysis.
In performance, emphasis is placed on key elements of acting craft, allowing actors the freedom to live and discover the story, moment to moment, with the audience on a nightly basis. Many audience members have marveled that they feel like a fly-on-the-wall observer of a real event, not only witnessing it but living through it with us.
We accomplish this by training our ensemble artists on a weekly basis, not only in the artistic elements of acting but also the overall craft of theater-making, including producing (fundraising, marketing, budgeting), community outreach (social media, audience development) and stage craft (props, costumes, set construction.)
We have a keen focus on working with artists of all types, particularly those that are in minority groups - women, seniors, people of color, LGBTQ, and those with disabilities.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
