Bus Projects is seeking a passionate artist or arts worker to join the team in a key leadership role as the Artistic Director. The Artistic Director provides artistic and strategic leadership to the organisation, working collaboratively with the Board to ensure long-term organisational sustainability. This opportunity arises at a pivotal moment in Bus Projects’ history, as we prepare to relocate to new premises and build an exciting new future for the organisation.
The Artistic Director is accountable for collaboratively developing and achieving Bus Projects’ artistic vision and strategic goals and the overall management and care of the organisation. The role oversees the design and delivery of our highly regarded artistic program, bringing individual research and creativity to the development of the program and our open-call methodology. The role also collaborates with the Board to develop, implement and review the Bus Projects strategic plan, including defining and reviewing the organisation’s vision, mission, values, goals, strategies and evaluation framework.
Having the ability to work in an open, empathetic, speculative and collaborative way with artists to nurture creative ideas is vital to the success of the role. The role is suited to an early or mid-career artist or arts worker with arts management skills, strong knowledge of local, national and international practice, existing sector relationships and networks and a keen interest in leading a small artist-led organisation. The ideal candidate will understand the vital role that Bus Projects plays within the local and national arts ecology and be committed to ensuring the sustainability of the organisation. This position is ideal for someone looking to take the next step in their career by guiding one of Australia’s leading artist-led not-for-profit visual arts organisations through its next chapter.
