About the Role

We are looking for a dynamic, inspirational and visionary Creative Director who can take FutureEverything into the next chapter of its journey. 

A leader who can innovate on the creative direction of our work and shape the core company mission; who can bring vision to the artistic freedom that we offer whilst playing a key role in the operations.  

We are looking for somebody who is well connected on a national and international level and can be a beacon to attract interest from a diverse range of partners, stakeholders, and funders across the arts, cultural and technology landscapes and beyond. 

Do you have the insight and ability to generate world-class original work at the cutting edge of the digital domain? Can you conceive, curate and deliver exhibitions, festivals, large-scale art installations, conferences, participatory design innovation, and consulting-style work?

You may already be leading an organisation or be a practitioner, ready to take an ambitious next step, and will already have several years of high level experience as a creative leader. 

Collaboration is at the heart of everything that we do and you will work closely with the Executive Director, Board, Staff, and stakeholders to realise incredible projects in a bold, transparent, and ethical fashion.

Are you somebody with ambition who is creative, curious, and inspired by the work we do (and will challenge us to consider what we can do in the future)? 

If you are all of these things, and more, we would be excited to hear from you.
