Ten Days on the Island

Head of Programming Operations

Ten Days on the Island (Ten Days) was established by the Tasmanian Government in 2000 to develop and deliver a statewide cultural festival of national significance that provides opportunities for Tasmanian artists and companies to present their works to a wider audience, access for Tasmanian audiences to national and international artists and companies of the highest quality, and helps to build Tasmania’s professional arts infrastructure.

 The biennial festival celebrates Lutruwita/Tasmania’s island culture and offers a platform on which to profile and promote Tasmania’s innovative, creative and resourceful character and unique cultural identity.

 Ten Days brings international recognition for Tasmania and demonstrates how the arts can positively influence a community’s perception of itself and the image it projects to the world.

The next Festival is 21 – 30 March 2025.

Ten Days on the Island is seeking a Head of Programming Operations to join us for Festival 2025. Based in Lutruwita/Tasmania this motivated individual will assist us to realise an ambitious and unique state-wide festival program.  This management role is suited to a collaborative problem solver with operational experience delivering diverse programming within an arts festival or key organisational context.

If you have the skills, passion, experience, and a sense of adventure we’d love to hear from you.  Please head over to our website ‘Join the Team’ page to find more information and the Position Description for this role.
