First Nations Producer - BIGSOUND

QMusic seeks a suitably experienced and qualified First Nations Producer to assist with the delivery and development of BIGSOUND.

BIGSOUND is one of the world's leading music industry conferences and festivals of new music. We want BIGSOUND to be a culturally appropriate event that celebrates First Nations peoples and music in a way that is inclusive and authentic.

The First Nations Producer will:

  • Participate in the overall BIGSOUND design process to contribute ideas that will make the event more inclusive and culturally appropriate
  • Advise on the cultural appropriateness of all BIGSOUND communications
  • Curate a minimum of 2 First Nations-relevant discussions at BIGSOUND
  • Curate spaces for First Nations people to commune during BIGSOUND
  • Curate the HOME showcase and playlist
  • Advise the Executive Programmer on relevant First Nations’ people to appear on conference panels/discussions/workshops
  • Work with the CEO to build relationships with the local indigenous community for the purposes of engaging those people in the BIGSOUND experience
  • Receive input from and liaise with a First Nations Reference Group made up of indigenous music industry professionals from across Australia

The first year of this contract will develop and embed the First Nations Producer role in the BIGSOUND team. We envisage that the first year of this role will require an equivalent of 4 weeks of full-time work to complete between March and September. Year 2 will be renegotiated based on the Year 1 experience.

This role has been created for a person of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent. We encourage individuals from the Turrbal and Jagera peoples to apply.
