Based in Dunedin, Blue Oyster Art Project Space exists to enable emerging and experimental artists, writers and curators to work free from commercial restraints. For 18 years our organisation has aimed to broaden engagement with contemporary art by providing a diverse and energetic forum for critical dialogue around a yearly programme of exhibitions, projects, events and publications. We are supported by Creative New Zealand and the Dunedin City Council, along with a range of other sponsors, funders, patrons and supporters in and around the Dunedin community. Read More >

Working in a gallery or similar environment with a range of artists, writers, curators and the public, the role centrally provides opportunities to use and gain new skills in the running and administration of the gallery, with room to develop and extend on your own interests alongside these main tasks.
