We are hiring - come join our small but mighty team

Be a part of the Craft ACT team

Come, work with us and support Canberra’s thriving design and craft community.

Craft ACT is recognised as a leading centre in contemporary Australian craft and design, with a vision to strengthen the dynamic link between the arts – as encompassed in the craft sector – and the broad creative industries and design sector.

We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated person with an interest in a career in arts leadership. This is an excellent opportunity to gain exposure and experience in all aspects of arts management from creative programming and strategic planning, to financial management and fundraising, to operations and stakeholder relations.

The successful applicant will have demonstrated experience with the development and implementation of projects, exhibitions or events, especially working in collaboration with other organisations and partners to do so. If you are a creative and hands-on team player with outstanding interpersonal and organisational skills, as well as a passion for art and design, then we’d love to hear from you.

The Assistant Director position will engage closely with the ideas and practice of craft artists and designers to put their work in a broader context for the community. Craft ACT’s artistic and outreach programs engage closely with partner arts organisations, government, businesses and educational institutions to promote contemporary craft and design. It seeks to position Craft ACT and its members as vital to Canberra and well-connected to Australia and the world.
