Broken Hill has long inspired art and attracted artists from painters to filmmakers to the region. The Broken Hill Art Exchange (BHAE) was founded in 2001 as a charity with a mission to support all arts communities whilst creating experiences and opportunities for locals and visitor attractions.
The Art Exchange provides affordable artists residencies including accommodation and studio space, supports artists to increase their revenue streams and brings art to all sectors of the community through workshops, projects and partnerships.
The Art Exchange also partners with ERIA (Environmental Research Initiative for Art) to deliver the Desert Equinox Environmental Program. This incorporates artists travelling to the town late September to deliver an environmentally themed public art exhibition alongside an online exhibition and competition for artworks created in any arts discipline.
This diverse position encompasses administration, leadership and strategy. We are looking for someone who can support us as we grow in areas including office management, budgeting, volunteer strategies and leadership, grant applications, project support, business improvement, networking and cross-cultural engagement.
This is a volunteer position for a self-initiated, highly motivated and community minded person with excellent written and verbal communication skills. We are looking for someone that can bring business smarts and support us with organisational development to enable us to realise opportunities and deliver strategic goals.
Why volunteer for the Broken Hill Art Exchange?
The BHAE is entirely staffed by volunteers and our team is committed to growing the untapped potential of the organisation to support an under-resourced arts sector, whilst bringing art and experiences to the local community. We love the collaboration and opportunity to work on interesting projects within an innovative and supportive team environment.
We provide openings for people with diverse skillsets to give back to the community, artists to make a meaningful impact to their sector and people looking to build confidence gain practical work experience in a fun and safe environment.
With the 10th anniversary of the Desert Equinox and a myriad of project and partnership opportunities to explore, it’s an exciting time to join our team.
