Position Available | Marketing and Communications Consultant

May 8th, 2018 | Regional Arts Australia News


Regional Arts Australia (RAA) is a national peak organisation representing the arts across regional Australia.

In everything we do, we want to make regional Australia a better place – because that makes Australia a better nation.

RAA promotes culture and creativity that enriches lives and nurtures pride, resilience, empowerment, connectivity and healing in communities. As a peak organisation representing the arts in regional, remote and rural Australia, we have served Australia for over 50 years and we provide national reach and national impact to resource and promote regional arts and culture in collaboration with our members, the state-based Regional Arts Organisations.

RAA manages the Regional Arts Fund on behalf of the Australian Government. The fund is devolved through RAA for distribution by our state based regional arts organisations and agencies.

We collaborate nationally:

  • To celebrate arts and culture by promoting and sharing success and innovation.
  • By working with government and other supporters to achieve better arts and cultural outcomes.
  • In delivering national events, professional development and funding for arts initiatives.

One in three people in Australia live in regional Australia and their arts and cultural contributions have a national impact. It is these artists, arts organisations, communities and audiences that we support, encourage and collaborate with.

RAA is looking for a talented and committed marketing and communications consultant to take over and manage our marketing and communications for a six-month maternity leave contract beginning 1 July 2018.
