R.I.S.E. Chattanooga and SoundCorps are announcing a collaborative employee share agreement to help alleviate staffing and recruitment efforts for both arts-focused nonprofit organizations.
R.I.S.E. Chattanooga Executive Director Shane Morrow said, “There has never been a more important time for nonprofit organizations like ours to band together, think collaboratively and grow responsibly alongside our community. We hope this concept of staff-sharing can serve as a model for other nonprofit organizations in Chattanooga’s arts community to increase efforts to retain our city’s diverse pool of talented candidates of color seeking arts-related positions. We’re excited to partner with our musically-minded friends at SoundCorps on this initiative.”
SoundCorps Executive Director Stratton Tingle said, “R.I.S.E. has worked with a number of talented young professionals in the nonprofit realm for the past few years and we’re elated to join forces with them to help us with ongoing administrative needs while expanding our efforts in live-streaming and media production to offer quality programming to Chattanooga’s music community. The cost-sharing benefit of working with R.I.S.E. in this manner helps ensure the long-term sustainability and efficacy of SoundCorps.”
