Work with us: applications open for Co Director of Watch This Space

Loading Events

Applications close midnight, Monday 4 July 2022 

The Co-Director’s role is exciting and varied. In 2021, the role of Director was rebirthed as a two-person Co-Directorship model. The Co-Directors share all operational responsibilities, requiring close collaboration. The shared responsibility allows for an environment that is emotionally and logistically supportive for both staff and artists.

The role requires strong arts administration skills, creative direction and community focus. With the support and collaboration of your Co-Director, you will coordinate all aspects of the exhibition, residency, events and special projects program, artists’ studios, venue and budget management and financial reporting as well as other creative projects. You will work autonomously and collaboratively, with the support of the WTS Board, Curatorial Committee, studio artists and volunteers. This is an incredibly rewarding role with a high degree of responsibility and the potential to contribute to the artistic and cultural life of our region.

The successful applicant will be involved in defining strategies for the organisation’s next chapter as 2022 marks the second year of our multi-year funding agreement with Australia Council for the Arts. Our aims are to nurture non-commercial, experimental artistic practice in Central Australia; improve access and participation in the arts; contribute to local and national sector development; and increase organisational sustainability.
