Work at the MCA
Casual Artist Educators
The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia reached a record breaking 1,000,000 visitors in eleven months after re-opening! The redevelopment has transformed the MCA, with spacious new galleries including an entire floor dedicated to the MCA Collection; the National Centre for Creative Learning with state-of-the-art technology; public spaces that embrace one of the world’s most famous locations, and a series of site-specific artists’ commissions. The new MCA responds to its unique location and meets the needs of the Museum, bringing together old and new to create a context for engaging artists with audiences for the 21st century.
We are looking to expand our casual team of Educators who are integral members of the Education team. Educators work across all areas of the learning programs working closely with all members of the Creative Learning team to incorporate the aims of the exhibition program and deliver a range of educational activities. Educators provide learning opportunities, which can be either informal or based on the NSW Syllabus. They are responsible for facilitating explorations of MCA exhibitions, assisting with event planning and design, developing learning resources, delivering hands-on workshops and courses to a wide range of audiences.
The Educator position is ideal for professional artists or teachers who are interested in engaging with the MCA and contributing their talent to the community in an educational context. Hours will vary according to week and season.
