Venue Manager Position Description
Located in downtown Baltimore, Le Mondo is an artist-run bar & performance venue for artists and art-lovers with diverse arts programming and studio spaces. We support our creative community by providing affordable, flexible space to make and present art. At Le Mondo, we host a slate of in-house-produced arts programming and community gatherings as well as outside public and private rental events.
The Venue Manager works in close collaboration with the Founding Executive Director and is responsible for the day-to-day management of programming and venue operations at Le Mondo.
As Venue Manager, you’ll act as a community ambassador to our performance venue. You’ll ensure that all events at Le Mondo, both in-house programming and outside rentals, are staffed appropriately and run smoothly in a safe and welcoming environment for all artists and patrons.
This role will provide you a unique opportunity and voice in shaping our young venue and growing operations. You’ll help identify and execute strategies to grow revenue for the venue.
