We are seeking a volunteer Media/Publicity Coordinator – is that you?

Newstead Arts Hub is a creative community space established in late 2015 and located in Newstead’s wonderful historic railway station building. The Hub has an active and committed group of volunteers who work to manage and develop the organisation, our venue and what we offer to our local communities and visitors.

The Arts Hub has an active program of exhibitions, workshops and events. The Arts Hub committee now is about to launch our new business plan which describes some exciting ways in which we can expand what we offer to support and nurture creativity across our local and wider communities.

The role of Media/Publicity Coordinator

We are seeking a volunteer Media/Publicity Coordinator to be part of our Promotions team and Programming group. For more please download the full role description here.

The role of the Publicity Coordinator is twofold:

  • to coordinate the promotion of the Hub and our activities using established tools – our website, monthly eNews, social media, Castlemaine/Maldon Visitor What’s On and Newstead Echo – and working with other volunteers
  • to progressively expand our reach and lift the Hub’s profile locally and regionally by engaging with local media (newspapers, radio, television), the two Visitor Information Centres and other like-minded organisations who might share information and hard-copy or digital publicity materials.

As a volunteer this role will enable you to make a tangible difference to the Hub and its community, to extend your local networks, to use and build your skills in promotion and media relationships, and the opportunity to be part of an exciting new stage in the development of the Hub.

This role is important to the Hub’s development and you will need to be able to commit about 3-4 hours per week to this role. You will report directly to the Hub Committee’s chair, who is also a member of both the Promotions Team and the Programming Group, and we’d welcome you onto the Committee if you were willing.

For more information and how to apply, see the PDF role description. Applications by Monday 17 April please.
