Enjoy Public Art Gallery is seeking a highly motivated Communications and Publications Manager to join our team in early September 2018. Established in 2000, Enjoy Public Art Gallery is a leading independent contemporary art space in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.
The successful candidate will be driven by a commitment to generate and facilitate contemporary art projects and to promote the discourse of contemporary art practice in all its forms. This is an exceptional opportunity to work with emerging and established practitioners within the field of contemporary art.
This role has two important points of focus:
- To build and promote Enjoy's profile through management of the gallery's communications, online presence
- To support the Curator/Manager in day-to-day gallery operations, administration, exhibition and publishing programme development and delivery, while also upholding the aims and values outlined in the Enjoy Vision and Mission.
The Communications and Publications Manager will work closely and collaboratively with the Curator/Manager and Trustees to implement Enjoy’s strategic vision. Reporting initially to the Curator/Manager and directly to the trustees as required, the Communications and Publications Manager will promote and develop discourse around Enjoy’s exhibitions, publications and other programming. This includes building relationships with key arts and cultural organisations, artists, writers, designers, volunteers, media and the Enjoy community.
You will also be responsible for Enjoy’s online presence: implement the gallery’s Digital Strategy, producing content for and publishing to Enjoy’s website, Instagram, Facebook, blog, video channel and other social media accounts.
Working with a range of contributors including artists, writers and designers, you will work with the Curator/Manager to develop Enjoy’s publications programme and will oversee aspects of these projects such as scheduling, commissioning, editing, proofing, design, printing and distribution. Alongside these activities, you will provide administrative support for the delivery and development of Enjoy’s programming, including overseeing Enjoy’s volunteer programme.
