Indigenous Arts Officer
Full time
$80,000 + super + salary packaging available

Are you a First Nations creative who believes in the power of art to change lives?

Join The Torch team of talented First Nations creatives who deliver our art and cultural programs to In Prison and In Community participants? Our Indigenous Arts Officers support First Nations participants to develop their arts and cultural practice both in prison and after release.

This full-time role requires regular travel to Victorian male prisons and to regional Victoria to visit participants in community, and scheduled travel to our Melbourne metro office. This role may suit someone living in regional Victoria or metro Melbourne.

The success of The Torch’s Program is due to the cultural support and guidance provided to our participants from our Indigenous Arts Officers, which is why we are seeking applicants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for this role.

Becoming an artist has changed me in so many ways. It has given me a better perspective and outlook on life and it has taught me to have patience. I guess it’s created a whole new world for me and has given me a lot more confidence in myself. Thomas ‘Marksey’ Marks, Wotjobaluk/Gunaikurnai peoples, The Torch Program participant


We encourage anyone interested in this role to get in touch with Sharn Geary, The Torch’s Program Manager, to have a yarn prior to the application deadline.
