Experimenta’s vision is for a world shaped by art+tech. We champion new frontiers through art+tech by empowering artists to experiment with technology, generating creative possibilities and unearthing emerging art forms.
We are seeking a qualified Creative Producer who will be responsible for delivering our artistic program (exhibition programs and special projects), working with our creative team to design and support the organisation’s artistic vision.
This exciting new role will see you successfully build on Experimenta’s 35-year history and lead it in exciting future directions.
This role will develop experimental art programs driven by technology. This will include managing artistic projects, programs and venues to meet our strategic outcomes, funder requirements and artistic vision.
This role will continue to manage the current triennial exhibition of Experimenta Life Forms and develop the associated programs which will tour until 2024, while also creating the 2024-2026 exhibition tour plan with the creative team and managing other key programs, such as Experimenta Social.
This role is tasked with securing new venues and associated contracts and managing the installation and de-installation at venues across the triennial.
The role is initially for 7-months with the potential to extend into a longer-term position, reviewed again in mid-2023.
The successful candidate will be trusted to use initiative and dive right in to the role. You will combine experience in curating, exhibition management and touring, program development and delivery, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and a commitment to supporting contemporary art forms and artists. You will be highly skilled at liaising with production teams, artists and stakeholders – with excellent budget, timeline and quality tracking knowledge. This is a key role that requires a level of maturity in regard to managing workloads and decision-making.
This person will join and inspire a small, dedicated, passionate team working across finance, administration, artistic development and delivery, marketing and communications.
The core focus for 2022 to 2023 is the management of the Experimenta Life Forms and existing programs, developing the 2024 Tour program and managing Experimenta Social – our industry-speaking events. This includes both online (digital) and in-person programs.
