About the role
About the organisation
RISING is a surge of art, music and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne.
Taking the place of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and White Night Melbourne, RISING is a major cultural event for the Asia Pacific Region created by a diverse team of local, national and international artists and curators.
RISING will begin on the evening of the total lunar eclipse in May 2021. Interlocking circles of experience and connection will radiate through the night, as the city re-synchronises and is re-energised with public art, performance and music spanning the emerging and iconic, the epic and intimate.
The inaugural festival will take place 26 May – 6 June 2021.
Spanning installation, dance, sound, visual art and performance, public participation is a critical part of many large-scale RISING projects. Working with the Community Producer, the Access and Inclusion Coordinator will execute RISING’s Community Engagement Strategy, overseeing participation in the festival program.
The Access and Inclusion Coordinator will develop and manage the resources needed to RISING’s community related objectives and activities. Working alongside Production, Operations and Brand and Commercial teams, you’ll embed inclusive practices across the festival. The role will also work closely with RISING senior leadership and Artistic Directors.
You’re a natural collaborator, with a strong commitment to equity and diversity. Your enthusiasm will inspire participation from Melbourne’s diverse local communities. You’re a strategic thinker and know how to seek out, develop and maintain a range of external relationships. You’ll be the connective tissue between community groups and the festival, bringing them on as performers, makers and/or as part of the support team. You have high standards and sound judgement, but you also recognise you work with human beings, so you’re flexible, open and a problem solver. You are able to adapt to a fluctuating workload and a dynamic, demanding work environment.
