It is official; he has been ‘crowned’

     (PNAN-ND) – In September 2011, he was appointed interim Executive Director by Arts North Dakota, but the “pudding” he has made over the past months forged the proof of his capabilities to be named officially as the Executive Director of Arts North Dakota. “I have learned much about the organization and the arts throughout North Dakota these past few months.  I hope to continue to build momentum with this fast growing organization and build upon the firm foundation set by the board members.  I am driven to see AND become a thriving force of the ND arts community,” said Josh Nichols.


     Josh Nichols graduated from Dickinson State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. During his time at DSU, he was very active in the theatre productions. Since graduation, Josh has acted, directed, and assisted with many community theatre productions. He is the current President and a founding member of SneakPique productions, a community theatre organization in Dickinson. He currently works at DSU as the Intake and Transition Coordinator for the federal Student Support Services program. He also co-owns a small business multimediaGEEKS, and is current president of the Dickinson Young Professionals. Josh is excited at the opportunity to work with Arts North Dakota and its very committed board of directors.

     The mission of Arts North Dakota (AND) is three-fold: Advocacy – AND is committed to monitoring state and federal legislation concerning the arts, arts education, and community development through the arts; Education – AND, in partnership with NDCA and NDAA, creates and co-sponsors professional development opportunities, conferences and seminars, providing information and training to enhance leadership and educational experiences for artists, educators, and arts administrators and advocates; and Service – AND serves as a repository of a variety of resources available to artists, educators, administrators, and advocates.
