Arts on Tour is seeking a motivated and passionate Marketing and Engagement Coordinator to manage the marketing requirements for Australia’s most prolific performing arts touring organisation. This highly connected role places you at the heart of the performing arts industry, building sector knowledge and developing relationships with companies, artists and venues across the country, whilst maximising the impact of what we do for communities and audiences.
Our vision is for every community in Australia to have a creative pulse, made stronger by the arts experiences we bring. This is a unique opportunity to play a key role in making this happen.
Arts on Tour is a dynamic and purpose-driven organisation. Based in Redfern, we are the peak body for performing arts touring in NSW. Our overarching purpose is to bring culturally distinctive and resonant arts experiences to metropolitan and regional towns across the country, and maximise the lasting impact of this activity for communities and audiences, artists and the sector.
Funded by Create NSW, we are widely recognised as leading on best practice in touring. Our core service is working collaboratively with NSW-based producing companies and presenting venues nationally to develop and deliver tours of a range of productions across all genres. Our program also includes events and initiatives that build touring capacity across the sector, broaden the reach of professional work to more remote communities, and maximise the impact of touring productions in the communities we work with.
We work with companies large and small, including Sydney Dance Company, Belvoir Theatre and Monkey Baa Theatre Company. You will be joining a busy team of passionate people who are driven by the impact of the work we do on individuals and communities across Australia.

This role is integral to all aspects of Arts on Tour’s program. Reporting jointly to the Executive Director and the Touring Services Manager, you will work with producing companies to ensure marketing materials for our tours are effective and of a consistently high quality, and to develop marketing strategies for regional audiences. Working with the Touring Services Manager you will also schedule and coordinate marketing and engagement activity to accompany performances. You will proof marketing collateral on behalf of producers and liaise with venues around the country to ensure accuracy and brand consistency.
Working with the Executive Director, you will also manage the Arts on Tour brand, including our regular communications, website and social media profiles, as well as develop campaigns for Arts on Tour’s sector building initiatives.
