Artistic Director 2020 – 2023

At the edge of Australia, at the edge of the world, our lifestyle, our environment, our history provides us with a singularly distinctive outlook on how we celebrate creativity and culture — and embrace the very best that humanity has to offer from anywhere on the planet. Every summer since 1953 Perth explodes with music, dance, stories, conversations and laughter. Bright and bold and refreshingly down-to-earth, our Festival is made for locals — but we invite everyone to jump in, and experience art in a different light.

We are seeking an inspiring individual to provide artistic leadership for the 2020 – 2023 Perth Festivals, with planning to commence in June 2018.

Working with the Festival Board and Executive Director, the Artistic Director will be responsible for delivering a program of excellence, from work which is both local and international. We would like to invite candidates from Australia and around the globe to consider the exciting artistic opportunities, audience and community impact afforded by this unique position in Western Australia.

It is expected the new Artistic Director will take up tenure for four Festivals (2020-2023) based in Perth, Western Australia. An attractive remuneration package will be negotiated and relocation assistance will be provided to the successful candidate if required.
