Expressions of interest (EOI) are called for the casual contracted position of District Coordinators for M~M2018: Geelong’s Extreme Arts Walk, to be held on 4 and 5 May 2018.
Mountain to Mouth (M~M) is Geelong’s multi-award winning extreme arts walk – an 80 kilometre biennial journey of discovery over two days. M~M begins at the You Yangs mountain range, crosses Geelong’s industrial heartland at nightfall and arrives in the city centre to collide with Geelong After Dark, a night of extreme and unexpected arts. In the tradition of Wadawurrung traditional owners, M~M creates a contemporary songline across the Geelong and Queenscliffe regions. Artworks installed in Walking Circle landmarks feature at the 12 Songline Stations along the way.
Six District Coordinators will be engaged from late December 2017 until mid-May 2018 on a casual basis with the M~M2018 Project Team at the Arts & Culture Department, City of Greater Geelong.
Primary responsibility for this role will be the coordination of community engagement in the M~M2018 Walk for two Songline Stations situated along the route. Prior experience in event management is an advantage, however the main skill required is excellent communication and knowledge of the local communities and an interest in the arts and environment. Particular consideration will be given for applicants who have experience and networks relating to coastal environments and communities.
Applicants will be contracted for a fee, which will comprise payment for the equivalent of approximately 20 days work across a ve month period.
The M~M2018 Artistic Director, Margie Mackay, is a nationally recognised artist, with considerable experience in delivering innovative and memorable large-scale artistic community events.
