Then imagine joining us and experiencing life at Gasworks Arts Park. We are a small but dynamic team working to bring more art into life. Gasworks are currently looking for a new Operations Manager to oversee operations for our Arts Park Precinct.

An exciting opportunity exists for an energetic practical person with an eye for beauty, as Gasworks Arts Park embarks on the next stage of our evolution.

We have two theatres, three gallery spaces, function spaces, a meeting room, 16 resident artists’ studios and a café, all on site and nestled within our tranquil parklands.
