Blue Oyster Art Project Space is looking for a Design, Publishing & Communications Manager to join our team. We’re searching for someone with a degree in graphic design, visual arts, or similar experience and a passion for contemporary visual arts, design, and publishing. 

We exist to enable emerging and experimental arts practitioners to work in an innovative, experimental and non-commercial environment. We aim to broaden interest in and understanding of contemporary arts by providing a forum for discussion and debate.

The Design, Publishing & Communications Manager will be responsible for maintaining and strengthening Blue Oyster’s relationships with our audience and the media, so excellent written communication skills and attention to detail are key.

While this role will be directly responsible for in-house design, publishing and the gallery’s external communications, the successful applicant will also work across the organisation to assist the Director in realising the strategic vision and goals for the gallery, enable individual artists to generate high quality and critically engaging projects and help with the day-to-day running of the gallery.  

This is a chance to build on Blue Oyster’s strong reputation for supporting experimental and emerging art practice by further developing our visual identity and institutional voice. As Blue Oyster embarks on its third decade as a contemporary art project space this is an opportunity to build upon and strengthen our visual identity.  

This role is 32-40 hours per week. Hours will be negotiated with the successful applicant. Days negotiable, however must be available some evenings and weekends (openings, board meetings and events). 

The starting salary is $42,000 per annum based on a 40 hour week. 

Application deadline: 4pm, Monday 16 March, 2020.
