We are looking for an energetic, focused, arts communicator to join Artspace Aotearoa as Kaiwhakapā Communications Coordinator. This is an exciting opportunity to work within our small team and play a key role in amplifying the work that our dynamic organisation does.

About Artspace Aotearoa

Artspace Aotearoa is a non-profit contemporary art gallery located in the heart of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Founded in 1987 by artists and arts workers, it continues to be artist-led. Our work centres the ways in which art contributes to our understanding and reimagining of the world in which we live. We work within a specific city context, and spiral out into national and international conversations that promote practices that present emancipatory world views. With a specific focus on developing an intergenerational kaupapa, we seek to present established, emerging and under-recognised positions.

They work across all aspects of our public interface, both inside and outside the gallery, including; press, marketing, social media, and style guiding. They work to share our story with our community and the unique role Artspace Aotearoa plays in our ecosystem. They grow confident publics, increasing access and ability to connect and engage with Artspace Aotearoa and its purpose.

About you

As part of a small team you are energetic, organised, agile and have a nuanced understanding of collaborative and self-led work with a solutions oriented mindset. You have a demonstrated grasp of communications as applied in the cultural sector, and come with thought provoking strategies to evolve in this context. You are an adept connector with an awareness about the wide variety of needs we engage with.
