So you want my arts job: Aboriginal Art Centre Manager

Working remotely on Country has its challenges, but also its rewards. Bryce Hartnett of Keringke Arts spoke with ArtsHub about being an Aboriginal Art Centre Manager.

For many of us working in the arts, we are deeply touched by First Nations narratives and creativity, and hunger to learn more. One career move that locates you at that grassroots level, is to head out on Country and become an Aboriginal Art Centre Manager.

There are over 80 Aboriginal Art Centres across Australia, in a network that stretches from the humid tropical north of Arnhem Land, to the Red Centre, to the home of dot painting – the distinct APY Lands, and to the diverse country of Western Australia.
