Founded in 1992 by avant-garde visionary and theater director Robert Wilson, The Watermill Center is an interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts and humanities situated on ten acres of Shinnecock ancestral territory on Long Island’s East End. With an emphasis on creativity and collaboration, Watermill ​integrates performing arts practice with resources from the humanities, research from the sciences and inspiration from the visual arts. ​The Center is unique within the global landscape of experimental artistic practice and regularly convenes the brightest minds from across disciplines to do, in Wilson’s words, “what no one else is doing.”

Join our dedicated team of talented professionals who share a passion for the arts, and help us continue our mission of providing artists with the time, space and freedom to create and inspire.

The Watermill Center and Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation are equal opportunity employers, dedicated to creating a welcoming and diverse workplace.
