Confluence Seeks Celilo Park Project Manager

February 6, 2018

Confluence is a community-supported nonprofit that connects people to place through art and education. We work in collaboration with northwest tribes, communities and the celebrated artist Maya Lin to create reflective moments that can shape the future of the Columbia River system. We share stories of this river through six public art installations, educational programs and community engagement.

Currently, Confluence is working to complete its sixth and final art/landscape along the Columbia River system at Celilo Park near The Dalles, Oregon. This is where Celilo Falls once roared. It was a center of commerce and spiritual life for thousands of years. Celilo Falls was submerged in 1957 with the construction of The Dalles Dam. Our project goal is to develop, fabricate and install the Celilo Arc, Pavilion and other interpretive elements to revitalize Celilo Park to honor the indigenous people of the Columbia River, educate people about the rich history of Celilo Falls and strengthen the tribal presence in the public spaces along the river.

Confluence seeks a focused, energetic Project Manager to work with our small and dedicated staff to help make this project a reality. The Confluence office is located at the beautiful Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Vancouver, Washington. This is a part-time, hourly position for 30 hours per week. Wages dependent on experience. We offer medical benefits and a 401(k) match. Confluence is an equal opportunity employer and we strongly encourage applicants of all backgrounds. Ideally, this candidate would have the experience, knowledge and understanding needed to work closely with Columbia River treaty tribes.
