PUSHPUSH JOBS

PushPush Arts (formerly PushPush Theater) is a 501C3 NPO with a mission to incubate artists and their original work through creative development and programmatic opportunities that focus on collaboration, inclusion, experimentation and innovation. We empower artists to create work that innovates and shapes the myriad of ways our city experiences the arts. For over two decades, PushPush has been a one-of-a-kind incubator for artists striving to stay authentic to Atlanta’s unique promise.

More than a theater, a music venue, an art gallery, and a gathering space – PushPush Arts is a place where artists can be creative and try new ideas that have not been explored commercially. Through affordable space, workshops, test filming, galleries, proofs of concept, and full productions, our reach is local, regional and international. Our vision is to be an open-source hub for working artists across multiple disciplines, offering resources, mentorship and residency programs, and critical response that enables them to affordably advance their projects and careers.
