Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History

Aratoi is Wairarapa’s vibrant and ambitious museum of art and history located in the cultural quarter of Masterton’s CBD. Our museum offers a diverse exhibition programme and cares for a significant collection of art, social history and taonga Māori.

We are looking for a Curator - a gifted storyteller with an eye for detail and a passion for arts, culture and heritage. Working across all areas of the museum operation and programming, you will be managing the Content & Engagement team, care for the Aratoi collection and, in collaboration with the Director, be responsible for exhibitions and programmes.

You will be welcomed into a team that is collaborative, values input and empowers your development. While this is a full-time (37.5 hrs/p.w.) role, there may be flexibility to adjust this to part-time hours to support a candidate who may be balancing family, study or other commitments.

Working for Aratoi is an opportunity for you to enrich our communities. A relevant qualification and experience curating and working with collections is essential as is a strong understanding of our bicultural commitment.
