Adjunct Faculty & Guest Artist Opportunities

GSA hires adjunct faculty and guest artists to provide instruction, workshops, presentations and/or performances at our summer program, fall ArtShops, and other various activities throughout the year.

Recruitment Coordinators & Alumni Performing Arts Roster

The Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) looks for Part-Time Recruitment Coordinators every fall . The goal of the recruiter is to positively impact the number of applicants and students served by the various programs of GSA by visiting local high schools, arts/community centers and organizations. Recruitment will take place during the months of September, October, November and December.
Recruitment Coordinators have been hired for the 2016-2017 school year, but those interested in applying for next year should send a resume and cover letter to GSA.

GSA often calls upon alumni to represent the program at public events, receptions, and program fundraisers.  Additionally, the reputation of GSA’s distinguished alumni leads people from across the state to request the artistic product of those who have gone through our summer program. Could you provide background music at a reception? Could you read your work at a public event?  Let us know your talents and how you could share them at a GSA function or other event.  Email your information to GSA at
