New role: Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

I am so excited to be starting a new role this week at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.

As Young Creatives Coordinator I am going to be managing all their youth-led programs, including their Young Guides and the MCA’s Youth Committee, who are responsible for programming the Museum’s flagship event for young people 12-18, GENEXT.

GENEXT has been running since 2005 and is the only program of it’s kind in Australia - both in terms of longitude and scale (upward of 600 teenagers attend this five-times yearly event) , but also in terms of its informal, peer-led learning approach. It’s a program I’ve been following since before I left London so it feels like a bit of a dream to be running it now.

I’ll also be responsible for programming their monthly Lights On Later workshop series. There’s so much to look forward to.

Oh, and getting to work in such an iconic location, right on Circular Quay, under the gaze of the Harbour Bridge and across from the Sydney Opera House is also not going to suck.
