MCA Australia is dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists from across Australia and from around the world. Working at the MCA involves working closely with artists and audiences. See below for current opportunities to join the MCA team.
The MCA offers a flexible and practical work experience program, providing a limited number of Year 10 students with an exclusive one week behind – the – scenes peek into the dynamic Museum environment.
Students will be based in the National Centre for Creative Learning and have the opportunity to observe Creative Learning programs for various audiences, assist MCA Artist Educators with program preparation, provide Library staff with research support and engage with visitors in the Gallery.
Places are limited, therefore we cannot guarantee an appointment for all applicants. The work experience program takes place twice a year, June and November only.
2017 applications close 5pm Sunday 9 April. We are unable to confirm the outcome of any application until all applications have been reviewed, following the closing date.
Due to the large volume of applications we receive each year, we are unable to respond to all applicants. Short listed applicants will be contacted for a phone interview week commencing 17 April.
To apply, please complete the application form. Shortlisting will be based on applicants’ answers to questions listed in the application form.
Applications should be sent to the National Centre for Creative Learning Coordinator on firstname.lastname@example.org.
