Expression of Interest: Project / Production Managers & Producer roles

Melbourne is one of the leading cultural cities in the world. Renowned for its artists, musicians and creative industry, food, laneways, fashion, sport and entertainment offering, such experiences permeate all parts of the city’s way of life, making it a vibrant place to be.

After 35 years of Melbourne International Arts Festival bringing the best of the world’s performing arts to Melbourne, the Festival is working with its government partners (Visit Victoria and Creative Victoria) to create a yet to be named new major event from 2020 onwards (‘New Festival’). The New Festival is a call to arms and a celebration of the night; a surge of civic ceremony and nocturnal culture alongside large-scale artworks, site specific performances and major international artists.

We require a team of Project/Production Mangers and Producers in the lead up to the 2020 Festival. We are seeking appointment in November 2019 through to September 2020 in various contract lengths.

We are an equal opportunity employer and as such committed to fair and equitable treatment for all employees and potential employees. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.

Submissions of interest should be sent to with the subject “Expression of Interest”. This needs to include your current CV and answers to the following questions (1 page max):

- What has been your favourite project/productions you have worked on and why
- Why would you like to work with the Melbourne International Arts Festival
- What is your availability between now and September 2020

Submissions will be accepted up to the end of October, after which we will start contacting potential team members.
