The Administrative Assistant will play a key role in supporting project efforts through coordination and communication with the many staff and stakeholders involved. Working closely with the Project, Education and Digitization teams, the Administrative Assistant will organize tasks and track progress on tasks with staff and vendors, support planning and implementation of a Teacher Institute, support the development of digital learning resources and community cataloguing efforts. This position reports primarily to the Director of Learning and Community Engagement and to the Project Director as needed. This is a part-time, position of 20 hours per week for a period of two years and is contingent upon grant funds being received.
Gilcrease Museum was recently awarded funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for the two-year project, “From Trauma to Resilience: Learning from the Eddie Faye Gates Collection.” The collection is a gift of Tulsan Eddie Faye Gates and reflects the life, legacy and work of a leading African American teacher, author and community activist who labored to recover the forgotten voices of survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. The archive contains eyewitness accounts, photographs, recorded survivor stories and other narratives of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. This award will fund research, cataloging, digitization, programming and educational efforts surrounding the Eddie Faye Gates collection in order to make digitally accessible first-hand accounts and lessons from the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. It also enables community partners to play an integral role in tagging and cataloging activities and supports an inaugural Teacher Institute inspired by the collection. This position is critical to realizing this powerful project that converges with the centennial of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
