Maribyrnong City Council is undergoing significant change in population growth, redevelopment, and a transitioning economy is leading to an influx of new residents, businesses, and opportunities. It's home to a significant artist population, a broad array of arts organisations and creative sector businesses, along with a culturally rich and diverse community eager to participate in and engage with the arts.
Maribyrnong City Council requires an experienced Visual and Public Art Officer to be part of the Council's Arts and Culture team to foster the continued growth of Maribyrnong's vibrant arts sector.
Should you join us, you'll be stepping into a highly varied role that nestles you comfortably within the scene you know and love.
