Paid opportunities with Crack Theatre Festival 2016

If you’ve been interested in working with the Festival, or getting large-scale event experience, now is a great time to come aboard.

Though the Festival is in Newcastle, our staff are based around Australia – as long as you’re across connecting through time zones, are organised, committed and have great taste in trashy 90’s music*, we want you.

We offer a fun, passionate workplace where we are excited to create a Festival and community that supports over 50 artists and 2000 audience members from around Australia, with more than 60 events each year.

We see these roles as opportunities for emerging producers, marketers and artistic directors – a chance to make your mark and make a difference to the practices of emerging and experimental artists in Australia.

In 2016, we’re looking for: a Co-Artistic Director, a Creative Producer, an Associate Producer, and a Marketing Manager.

Drop us a line if you want to chat about the roles available or need the production descriptions in word format. Even if you’re worried about how much experience you have – we want to hear from you.
